With my 1500, I always put it in reverse to control the speed of descent when backing out of my trailer with a tilt-down door/ramp. (It was too easy to lock the front wheel using the brakes and skid down the ramp.) Never had a problem, but the first time I tried the same thing with my 1800 it seemed to get "locked" into reverse and I had a hard time getting it back out - had to fiddle with the button and rock the bike back-and-forth to get it to release. I don't think I hurt anything, but it just didn't feel right. Instead, I now put it in first gear and feather the clutch to slow things down.

I keep my 93 1500 in a outside storage barn, I always back it right up the ramp its about 45 degrees pretty steep and it zips right up no worries.....the reverse is slow but has alot of torque.
I'd like to see somebody ride a Goldwing UP a 45 degree slope, let alone backup one.
