    When my father in law hit reverse on his GW, sometimes I'm jealous, but it just makes me think a little more about where/how I park so I do not get stuck pointing downhill w/ no where to go.

    Now if I had some issues with health or the ability to move the bike myself and I didn't ride a trike, then I might think about the reverse gear.

    Found this video....

    I only wish they would have demonstrated it on a more steeper incline and not a somewhat level parking lot. It seems like it could be beneficial in certain situations.

    Seems like a ton of money! I would only do it if there was no other way to keep riding!

    WOW, they are proud of that. I think I can do without a reverse until my health runs out to where I have to get a reverse or a trike.

    You better have gloves on when you go to grab that handle. It has to be very warm....

    Hmmm, never drove a bike in reverse before, ha-ha-ha!

    Seriously tho, if I had a trike I could see it, I usually find a place to park on a slight incline so I have no problems.

    Did see a guy and his lady up in Birmingham one morning pull their trike into a downhill parking space. They didn't have a reverse gear and I offered to help them move it out when they left, he did say he was new to it.
