Hi from South Africa

Hi all

I am a new Spyder owner from South Africa and at this stage I only know how to start the spyder. Will take it for a spin on the weekend.

Welcome from Montana!

Congratulations on the purchase! I am sure you will greatly enjoy the experience. Just remember, it is NOT a motorcycle and you cannot ride it like one, but its a great cruiser and a hoot to ride!
Have fun and welcome to the club!

Keep 3 down,

Welcome and I'm sure that you'll enjoy it!. If you're coming from 2 wheels there will likely be some time thinking the Spyder is a lousy ryde. It took me 2 weeks and 1500 km but things are coming together just fine.

Hi from Cape Town, South Africa. Had my Spyder 2 years now and she is in for her 20 000km service and new rear tyre. Can't wait to get her back and take her to the track.
