Smile Hi, from Spain

Hi to everybody!

I'm thinking about buying a Spyder RT Ltd 2010 from the brp dealer in Barcelona.

I actually ride a VTX 1300 Retro 2007 an I love it but i had problems with my back bones, so I think is the moment to change. I'm 60 years old and not specially strong nor tall. I have to be careful with my health if I want continue riding.
I think with can am I'll save pull down the bike to maneuver, maintain the weigth in stops, while my wife rides, etc. and I think in general my back will have less problems.

Could you help me?
What have I to know about this model before to go?

I'm sorry but my english is not as good as I'd like it was.

Thank you in advance!

Your English is fine, welcome to the forum.

The Can Am will allow you to ride without the strain of holding the weight of a two wheeler. The ease of riding the Can Am is fantasic, the SE models(semi automatic shifting).

I have a damaged hip and can ride on two wheels for some amount of time. A used 2013 ST became avilable. I bought the bike and at this point I can ride with my wife and other friends. The performance of the Can AM is fine for me, at 69 years old the need for speed has be replaced by comfort and dependablity.

Good Luck, try to arrange for a test ride, take an extended test if possible.

Hi from Kentucky!! I too am close to 70 years and have ridden two wheels for most of my time on bikes. I went with a new 2016 Spyder RT S and love it!!! Feel very stable even with two up. My daughter-in-law hates MCs and refused to allow her husband (my son) to ride one. He took her for a ride on my RT and now every time they come to KY (they live in Ohio) she has to come to my house for a ride!! I would suggest getting a 2014 or later just to get the 1330 cc three cylinder motor.

Thak you very much for your answers.
At the end I've bought the Spyder RT Limited edition from 2011.
Here in Spain prices of this kind of vehicles are too much expensive to buy a new one.
On the nearly future i'll explain to you the new feelings.
Thanks again.

Hola McAlva te felicito en tu nueva moto. Vas a gustar muchisimo tu RT. Tango una 2012. Despues de dos accidentes en menos de tres meses cambie de dos ruedas a tres. Yo tango 70 anos y no tango la fuerza en mis piernas como cuando era joven. La Spyder es muy facil para manejar especialmente cuando mi esposa anda conmigo.
Puedes darnos algunas fotos?
