Default Newbie from the UK..with a Disability.

Hi All,

I'm from Silverstone in the UK, I don't own a Can-Am Spyder yet but have my eye on one.
My right arm is paralysed, and whilst I still ride a converted motorcycle (Triumph Speed Triple) I'm hoping someone on here can advise me as to how difficult it will be to ride the Auto version of Spyder once the throttle is put on the left...has anyone done this?

Hi Terry!
I've got an SE 5 equipped Spyder and love it! Of course I don't have the same issues as you do; putting the throttle on the left side also will sure make you one very busy southpaw while riding...
I don't know of any conversions myself, but I'm sure that it'd be an easy one to accomplish.
I'll do some lookiing around and see what I can find for you.
