Reverser Technique

This is definately a newbie question.

The lip going into my garage is about 1" to 1.5" high. I can't seem to get the bike to back over it. It just sets there and slips. I tried reving the engine but that didn't work either. Is there a technique to operating the reverser?

Thanks

You could put a small 1/2 inch piece of wood prior to the 1-inch lip. That may help guide the bike up past it. Then just put your block of wood in the garage for storage.

Or get your neighbour to sit on the back.

I have to give a two-feet assist to get mine to back into my garage with that same 1.5 inch edge. There's just not enough torque in the system to cope with it.
