Default Hitch for trailer?

I hate the thought of ruining an awesome looking bike, but does anyone know anything about installing a hitch for a trailer on the fury, of if its even possible? I would like to go on some longer trips but can't because of lack of storage. Anybody know of any products or ideas? Thanks Everone!

I have thought of this idea as well. so that i can create a trailer for the dog to go with me when i go to the lake house.

my thoughts was to get a longer rear axel, and bend a piece of metel around the rear tire and mount the hitch to that.

Better off going with a side car.
Should give you plenty of storage and room for the dog. I think you can get them inclosed. It will be safer too!
Probably easier to get it installed also.

You might want to try adapting a Goldwing trailer hitch possibly//

I have installed dozens of hitches on GLs, there is NO WAY that will adapt. The pic shows a tiny bit of the hitch, doesn't show any of the attaching hardware, which is all hidden on the GL under the fender and bags, go to the Hitchdoc site and look at some for a VTX R, or a Valk and you MAY find something that would adapt, but I doubt it.
