maybe someone should of had a video camera for your little romp in the ditch. then you could have sent it to america's funniest home videos and you might have won enough to pay for the trouble.

Yes, that reverse gear can put you in some compromising positions. I remember when me and my riding freinds 1st started getting mechanical reverse kits put in our sleds in the early '90's. One of my bud's was showing off going backwards about 40mph and BAM! he was on his side. :doh: It was like an invisible hand picked him up and slammed him down. You have to be careful when going backwards.

LOL> Thats what one of my friends did on his Polaris. Although it dosnt have RER it still goes pretty fast. I said " i wonder how fast it would go in reverse" so he goes lets check, he puts it in reverse and kicks it to the boards in reverse going up a hill on a slant. The hill pulled him and he almost hit a tree. He never tried that again. :D
