63 years on two wheels, two weeks on three wheels

Just bought a 2010 Spyder RT, primarily to encourage wife who would no longer ride on two wheels (it worked!). Traded in my Kawasaki Voyager for the RT and have been enjoying the new ride with my wife. I ride with the Ft Worth chapter of Star International and while we have a couple of trikes in the group, Sunday the 27th will be the first time a ride has been led by a Can Am!

I recently purchased a 2018 CanAm Spyder f3 LTD, Black/Chrome. After 50 years on two wheel Harley’s, sold the stable of HD and bought the F3.

Welcome to the dark side.

I have a 2017 RT Ltd and love riding it. As you no doubt have or will find they have their quirks but learn how to ride them and you'll love it. Chief cook loves it to death, she also enjoys the us time and all the travel we are now doing.

One downside - the yard work, housework, home maintenance takes a big hit and rellies/friends are complaining we are never home

We have had our rt-s for 3 years. In upstate new york, finger lake area. 18,000 miles later we still rride as much as possible . You are right house and yard chores are missed but, oh well. 2k miles this year so far and plans for much more. Keep on riding and enjoy. No problems or concerns with the bike, just a few new tires.
