Now, if you could come up with an articulated hitch arrangement using the bicycle's steering head, you could tow the bicycle and use it for trailer to haul your beer cooler...

When you corner, do you feel any torsion from the high mount set back so far?

A little. But, that is mainly what the strap is for coming from the stem down to the passenger pegs. When I crank down on that, the suspension (the bicycle's), compresses, and the rear of the bicycle actually lifts up - so all of the weight/load is carried around the front fork of the bicycle. Mostly only feel it when there is a heavy cross-wind. It kind of acts like a sail

Don't tell me.. Your front wheel speed wobble went away when you racked it up like that..
