Jeez, only $10?

Something like a gear reduction high torque starte motor would be the ticket. Kick the bike into neutral and thumb the motor..2wd reverse with plenty of power..the nice thing about a hack is that there is room for a deep cycle. I've got a bazillion miles on a hack rig and have really only needed reverse a few times. Look at BeemerChef, riding all over without reverse.

Left side would couple easy with a BMW single sided swing arm.

I'll leave the lefty engineering to you. I ain't got a clue.

It depends on where you go. I'd install a winch on mine anyway. These are heavy fckers, especially with all the crap I'd carry with me. For me, there's no reason to have one and just run the streets. A roadable, highwayable 3-wheel ATV kinda thing that can carry a bunch of useless stuff I want to carry.

I won't venture into this black hole without some form of 2wd because I know what would happen. Also, I'd love using my '02 GS (needs new motor)as the driver, good power, air cooled, torquey, easy to maintain...and some other stuff. Needs lower rear gearing from an 80.

Yeah, an Optima yeller top or 2 onboard, good cooler setup, built in sleeves/tubes for the tarp poles, some kinda solar charging sht that jkam suggested...and some other stuff.

Way cool personal expedition vehicle, but...but....gotta be reliable.....

This system has a reverse. The rear wheel is attached to and suspended from the sidecar frame.

Their website says a lot of other stuff. I can't read German.

As proposed in another thread, look at this and you have everything you want: 24 gears, reduction and reverse gear!

If someone is crazy enough three wheel drive is doable.

May be I haven't read the description correctly, but to my information the Mobec drive is actually equipped with a viscious coupling.
So frome that point of view it would appear to be perfect.

Mine has a viscous coupling too. Sometimes I just don't understand these guys. Can they read?

At the moment, there's only one rideable "Superdrive" and that's the one with the Varadero in the pics.
