Towing

Got a question. Thanks in advance. I'm trying to do some research but not getting the exact answers i want. Anyways, i was wondering what the laws were for towing a bike with a trailer. Does it have to be a truck to tow? Sorry, i'm a newb to this type of stuff. I know my car has more than enough torque and power to haul something around.

power and torque dont mean much. you need to make sure your GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)is not exceeded to be safe.
