I heard Buick makes a good one, or Oldsmobile, Studebaker made one for the older FLH's.

I saw one on another forum. Very pricey. I don't remember who made it, it might have been eglidegoodies. It had a shift handle on the gearbox that looked kinda awkward.
Of course, sitting there shuffling your feet in gravel because you can't back up could look kinda awkward, too. lol

I added a Champion reverse kit to my 09 Ultra Classic. Works real good. Easy installation. Here are some pics.

Have not seen much on this that is the one complaint I have with my Street Glide, Harley put an electric reverse on their trike, they should consider it as an option for all touring models. hf

Reverse Gear

AIM Corp makes a reverse gear for HD touring bikes. Harley should give the option for a reverse gear. That is my only complaint about these 800lbs bikes, it that they are hard to back up. I'm 5'5 with my boots on and I have a street glide and I got to tell, its a pain on a slight slope.

I could just imagine what would happen if you forget neutral and let the clutch out with reverse engaged :<0
