    I rode my buddy's BMW 1300 the other day and it had reverse. Honestly, it was such a bizarre feeling to be on a bike and have reverse. Definitely nice for backing up when you're parked ina down grade.

    Hi guys,
    I have never heard/seen a bike with reverse. Do you "see" anything".. or its all internal. With bikes that weight 800Lbs ++... why are not more people installing these ?. I think its kind of cool

    Google "harley reverse gear kit" for a picture and price. All you see is a short lever on the end of the trans. They are neat, but pricey.

    with the baker you use your foot shifter and all :newsmile093:you see is the solenoid switch that comes out of trans cover ,no way to hit reverse while in forward gears thats why I'm leaning toward baker but they are pricey
