yeah, well, when I was riding to N. Idaho this summer from SoCal, I was about 300 yards behind a duallie pickup towing a two axle trailer at about 80 when he started to fishtail. I got a bad feeling, slowed down and put on my flashers just as it went sideways and separated from his pickup, skittered into the Jersey barrier and spun into the fast lane, coming to rest just in front of a VW, which locked up his brakes and narrowly missed it. I helped the idjit get it off the road. His comment? "Wow! I didn't even feel it let go!" Goofball.

There's a reason for that limit--you can bring a fishtailing trailer back under control at a slower speed.
