On The Road Again!
Once I was on a club ride to some festival with motorcycle parking in a lumpy grass field.Once at a fund raising ride the bike parked next to me was an Indian Roadmaster. We were on a slight forward incline so I needed to use the Reverse on the Goldwing to get the bike out. The owner of the Roadmaster, which is heavier than my Goldwing, said he did not have a Reverse feature. It took three of us to push this monstrously heavy bike back to where he could ride it away. Thinking of that, I wondered if this Indian trike has a Reverse. My Spyder has a true Reverse gear and I use it every day. A thousand pound ride without Reverse seems insane.
The bunch of us were all directed to park in a spot where we couldn't pull out forward.
We go to leave and everyone was busting a gut trying to push these heavy bikes backwards.
I simply put the Goldwing in reverse and backed out.
The guy next to me yelled, "That's cheating! You suck!"
