There is lateral bracing. The struts that go out to the silencer hang bolts are there for that very reason. I have had no problem with snaking, and I have towed that trailer I would guess about 50,000 Km, at speeds up to 200 Kph on occassion.
The trailer is not very heavy, 60 Kg empty, and maybe 100 Kg luggage. There would only be around 10 Kg weight on the hitch, so I have not found it necessary to change the rear suspension on the bike.
I don't insure bikes, so I couldn't care less what the insurance companies think about the trailer. I figure that if I have a minor crash, I will fix the bike myself. If I have a major crash, I probably won't need the bike any more. And I'm very careful about protecting the bike from theft.
