Yeah, and what I really like is that orange safety vest he's wearing. It's going to make all the difference!

I just hope he's not wearing false teeth (OUCH!!!).
Actually, he is neither pulling nor being towed by the train. What really happened is that the train's air brakes went out; which forced an emergency stop and the evacuation of all the passengers. The train is now located on a very shallow incline; and the man is holding it to prevent it from rolling away; until the Sagvagen arrives.
This is the undisclosed reason why KTM refuses to equip its motorcycles with air brakes.

Of course I plan to beef up the valiant before towing anything. Disc brakes trany cooler bigger radiator ad lower gears for sure and The trailer I want to pull will be small maybe even a vintage pop up tent trailer or a tear-drop style. Thanx for the info based on what I have read here I think I will be fine.

Best thing you can do is weigh the rig you plan to pull, once it's loaded up. That way you know right off if you are beyond the car's AND the hitch's capabilities.
