    I'm interested to know how much range takes a hit when towing a small light load--in particular a dirt bike. Have any owners done this yet?

    Closest report I've seen was someone pulling a golf cart in an open trailer. Cost was a halving of the range. Towing effect is going to be all about aerodynamics of the trailer+load and, to a lesser degree unless you are going on a lot of uphill, the weight of the load.
