  1. how can this be? This is now the 28 motorcyclist who has been hurt…and if he should die…this is the 5th death this year due to loose trailers and loads that we are aware of….we are towing with defective trailers these trailers were never wind tested…by anybody and they are built to a “Voluntary Standard. Since 1975 over 24,500 dead and since 1988 over 1,000,0000 injured go to dangeroustrailers.org
