Sonera in Towing Configuration308 viewsIt is towed tail first. I typically tow at 50 mph, with the Hazard Lights on. No Incidents so far. I towed it past two bored patrolmen this fall and they didn't bite, so it looks legal.
Important: Pull it only on level ground. Don't drive/back up ramps. The tow bar will be bent.
