I have a 12'-3" perception. Although intriguing, it just seems a bit much when I really start to think about the concept of pulling it behind the KLR.
If you consider the issue of any trailer on a motorcycle, it's already inherently dangerous. Throw in the idea of a 12+ foot long object back there, well it's a bit much.
If you consider the two mounting positions, flat and sideways, you end up with flat being the only viable option. Sideways would create too much surface for the wind and would be a major hazard for pushing the rear of the KLR around.
Even if you manage to mount it along one side, it's still a huge wind sail that will toss the KLR around pretty easily.
I think this limits any possibility of towing a kayak to only one option... tow it behind and in a flat position. Face up or down shouldn't matter.
