The amount reverse is used is in direct relationship to how long your legs are. If you are on tip toes then you aren't going to push it back on much of an incline.

I find I have a lot of free time, or did I just forget what I had to do.

Reverse is probably second, the fact that you had the audacity to buy something other than a Harley is number one. Don't y'all get butt hurt, only kidding.

Others may sell you the sizzle, But Honda will sell you the steak!!!

The lack of a reverse on a bike never drove me nuts.

I'm with Murf. Its fun to antagonize the HD boys. But I don't have it either. I just have to be smarter where I park. Been pushing the B around for three years. Keeps my legs in shape.

Wait... Goldwings have reverse?

Oh yeah, I bought the F6B (Forward Six Bagger). No reverse.
Apparently Honda traded my reverse for more lightening forward speed.

Day to day riding we don't use reverse but it is handy when getting out of wheel chocks and down our Toyhauler ramp. Reverse allows less motion than being in a gear when parked too.

The lack of a reverse would not have kept me from buying a Goldwing and, even though I rarely use reverse it is nice to know it is there if I need it.

Dude that wheel chock thing can be an issue. Snapping an 850 pound bike out of the Baxley chock can be a good sideshow.
