mine was also the heavy duty model. The wobling was not due to the end effector on the hitch, but the design itself. It seemed like it was never realy balanced, so the little amount of play in the hitch caused the thing to move a lot for my taste.

Some people swear by them, I didn't like it too much. I think they would be ideal if you definitelly do not have space to store a trailer. However, I feel a trailer is safer.

I didn't have space for a conventional trailer, so I bought a Kendon from Motorcycles Unlimited. That was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

His works well, and is very durable.

The problem is, last time I checked with the manufacturer, she was low on production and didn't seem like she was going to pick it up any time soon... that was the impression I got.

Contact them and make sure you get the heavy duty model- it costs a little more, but you will be much more happy with it.

My friend used his to carry his R6 and FZ1 (no, not at the same time) all over the country for track days and other trips.
sucks about the production but it sounds like it may be useable...
im getting 50/50 reviews from the net so relative user perspective is clouding my decision.
