My wife and I are thinking of a trike and we looked at an RT this past weekend. Going to ride it this weekend. We liked it alot but would like to know thoughts on how the spyder handles compared to a standard Goldwing or Suzuki trike. It seem like a std trike would push in the corners more. Thoughts please!
Part of it is physics...with a "standard" trike, you are dragging two "dead" wheels through a turn whereas the Spyder steers into the turn. You can get standard trikes with rear wheel steering but you'll pay for it.
I have encountered several "surprise turns" that were tighter than I thought they'd be. The stability control system on the Spyder saved my butt...I'm sure I would have flipped a standard trike
