    6 Speed reverse gear set

    The RGU sidecar rig has been done awhile. A fair amount of winter riding has proven it to be worthy. When wife and I go we are not worried about pushing limits. We often find our self in places you maybe should not go on a road bike.
    For this reason I am considering a reverse on the Rig. I know of 3 brands Baker makes one the seem to be real proud of looking at the price. Moto Trike makes one that some seem to swear by and Champion . Some reading seems to place high marks on the Champion due to it's slower speed.
    Any experience with any of them ?

    No Experience here but have been told told by a few Baker is worth the money .. But this is only 2nd hand information, they may be saying it because they spent it .. Seen this before on other additions made on Rides once it's spent some will justify the cost regardless ..

    Barker makes a good product, but they are over rated. No one comes on the net after have a Baker fail and gripes. Kind of like when a Glock fails. I have seen Baker products with issues. Monday I am going to go over the idea with HD dealer. I know they have installed a few but never bother to look at the brand.
    We could live without it but I know we will find places that just push the limits without one. When we go somewhere it is not just a bar hop if a rood looks interesting we try it. We darn sure had some on shit moments on the Touring bikes over the years.
    That is not going to change yet.

    At are age we don't justify it we just do it. Like my 1996 I would put what ever I had to in it to keep it going for another generation to enjoy. The Reverse was not a must have, that is why it was not doe right away. As wife and I talked about up coming rides , memories of places we have gotten our self into came up . We decide it was a worth while addition.
    Also it is not like I would let this rig go anyway.

    Well if you really look at it by midday Monday we should be backing out. I guess these means to scope I was looking at will have to wait a bit.

    Dropped it off today. Weather is suppose to get nasty on Saturday. 4 degrees when I left the house heading to Dealer. But it was a nice ride . Should be done Monday some time.
