Keep doing what you want brah, just let me know what your truck looks like so I can make sure I don't get stuck behind you.
Sally,

I'm not your brah, bro, or ghey lover (not judging).

"Lazy and careless"? Nope.

I do what I want.

I pull a trailer with a diesel sedan, and don't worry about being stuck behind me, I'll pass you quickly - you'll just have a quick wiff of diesel to know it happened.

As I posted earlier you illiterate mouth breather, I won't argue the point further.

However, a quick response to make fun of you (troll in your parlance), is possible as appropriate.

Hugs,

Mongo

PS. You're still wrong.

Neither can I. As I posted, just saying I've never had an issue in many years.

I'd defer to Patrick if there is a question and it bothers anyone. He knows more than I do.

I do what I want.Yeah I picked up on that. Total disregard for another drivers safety...got it

I pull a trailer with a diesel sedan, and don't worry about being stuck behind me, I'll pass you quickly - you'll just have a quick wiff of diesel to know it happened.Can you make it any more clear that you don't give a about anyone else on the road bro?

As I posted earlier you illiterate mouth breather, I won't argue the point further. Like your argument for leaving it in neutral, we all know that's bullshit, because you just did

However, a quick response to make fun of you (troll in your parlance), is possible as appropriate.

Mongo

PS. You're still wrong.Can you think of any logical reason for why I am wrong, or is it "just because"?
Thanks for the detailed response as to why it is more safe to leave the bike in neutral while towing. It was very educational.

Sally - Bless your heart. (Deep South meaning)

I haven't argued either way. Nor am I defending either method. I'm simply pointing out the fact that your car analogy is still idiotic.

It still is.

Fact. But you aren't one of those people.

Wow, this is what MH has digressed to, a discussion over whether to leave a bike in gear or not during trailering devolves into name calling and personal insults..

The original question posed was whether the bike needed to be in neutral.
No, it does not "need" to be.
It is however how I do it.
Does it give an extra amount of security? Yes.
Can you safely transport it in neutral? Absolutely.
Does it put any undo pressure on your gears? Maybe. Bit definitely a whole lot less than simply rolling off the throttle at high speed / rpm, or spirited down shifting does.
To each his own, I don't believe it's necessary, but I'm not going to get my snit in a twivle over it.

You posted all that before I mocked you by using a typical elementary school response, similar to your entire reasoning for why I am "wrong" on this particular issue. Are you toasting to yourself for whoring the thread up?

I think it's funny when people make fun of Shelly for shitposting when really the only thing they're accomplishing is more shitposting.

I like turtles.

His responses, my responses, yours above. Same thing.

I'll reach out to a mod to delete the noise. My posts at least.

Edit: done.

Thanks to all of the serious replies. I pretty much said the same thing about securing it, so neutral shouldn't matter.

He also asked if he should remove gas and battery, so he knew absolutely nothing about trailering. Lol.
