Has anyone got any information on using a caravan mover as a reverse on either the side car wheel or the bike?

Just thinking of returning to a hack again after many years solo and a trike but now far to 'mature' to have the power to push a complete outfit out of a difficult situation. I also don't want to have to go down the road of a Goldwing or BMW LT. as I prefer a more naked bike.

I have found a number of units that just may cover what I need but would be interested in learning if any others have gone down that road.

Photo is of one of my old outfits. just wish I had it now!

I had to google that one. Looks like a washing machine motor with a belt and pully. That would work. others have used starter motors with a rubber wheel on the shaft that rubs on the tire , spring loaded, turns on when you push it down to the tire. if the bikes naked just push it. or have the monkey push it while your steer.

At the age of 81 yrs it would be a bit unfair to as the lady to do the pushing!
