Does anyone know the front weight of the Silver Wing.  I would like to purchase a Dingy still towing that attaches to the hitch allowing me to connect the front of the bike, leaving the rear wheel on the ground and being able to pull behind my car. I done searches and can't seem to get my answer regarding the front weight of the bike.  I hope someone knows.

John is right. The clutch bearings are only grease lubricated. This is fine whilst the disengaged clutch is spinning for shortish periods of time whilst e.g. idling, but they aren't designed for constant spinning and I would imagine that towing with the rear wheel on the ground would just cause them premature wear.

When riding the Scoot, the clutch is 'locked up' and so the bearings aren't doing anything.
