I've seen some GL1100's and GL1200's that have been made into trikes. How in the world do people move their trikes around with no reverse? I have hard enough time just moving the GL1200 bike around as it is! Am I missing something ? :?Do some of the conversion kits come with some type a a reverse for these older bikes, or do you always need to bring your wife along to push?

I have a 1500 that I had triked 20k miles ago. It's been 2 years now, but old habits die hard. I still always park with the nose (front wheel) up hill. The 1500 has reverse, but I very seldom use it. It's too slow.

My biggest concern would be getting it out of the garage!

my riding buddy had his Electra Glide triked, no reverse, never seemed like a problem to him, suppose it's how you look ahead and park

I find the trike is a LOT easier to push backward than the bike ever was because you don't have to balance it. Mine has reverse but I usually just push it out of the garage becasue it is so much faster.

Interesting. I never really thought about it like that. You could actually get in front of it and push if you needed to, and not worry about it tipping over!

I have reverse also but like Steve and Doug said it's faster just pushing it. I also get nervous about breaking the starter gear.
