Motor Trike Reverse

Well, i finally made my choice and odrered a reverse for my bike. After some knee surgery i felt a little extra help backing up was in order. After doing a lot of reading and pondering i settled on the Motor Trike reverse. Seemed to be a better choice for me.
The kit should be in soon and my local dealer will do the install. Ill let you know how it works out

Interesting. I just read the installation pdf and it looks pretty straightforward. Something I'd consider doing myself (health permitting). Not a bad price either. I'll be curious to see how many hours labor your dealer chargers you for this.

My dealer told me about 8 hours labor to install that setup. Let me know the amount of hours yours charged you if you would please.

The only times I ever back up my bike is in my garage/shop when I back it into its spot, and backing out of the trailer.

Hope it works out for you.
