Default New Spyder Rider from Kansas

I recently traded in my 900 lt Kawasaki for a used 2009 can am Spyder and although it did not come with a spare key, a tool kit, or an owner's manual I have enjoyed it so much within this past two weeks. I rode my 900 LT once last year and I have been on the Spyder every day. I am looking forward to this bike season!

There is probably a big difference from Chapman to Missippi. I am from Ashland, about an hour south of Dodge City. I bought mine used; and the dealer said it making noise in reverse is " normal". It sure sounds like a brake dragging, wish I could make it go away.

Thanks! Wrote that warning right after I bought mine and realized my addiction...

Welcome to the forum and riding a Spyder! Lived in Manhattan, KS for 23 years before moving back to my hometown a few years back.
