Hi All,

Forty-four years on 2 wheels, barely 2 weeks on 3! That "age thing" reared its ugly head and my most-significant-other convinced me it was time to "upgrade" if she was going to continue to ride with me. Didn't take much - I've been curious about these things for a long time and fell in love with the Spyder RTL almost soon as I saw it in the dealership.

Picked the bike up a couple of Saturdays ago, and have slowly been getting accustomed to it. I can already see a ton of advantages with 3 wheels. Looking forward to some good times and long trips on this thing!

I've seen mentioned on this site and others, something about a rider safety/training class for three wheelers. Not sure if these are BRP sponsored or just the standard MSF sponsored classes that seem to concentrate on 2 wheeled bikes. My limited searches have all ended with "COVID-cancelled" results. My MSO had no interest in getting her motorcycle endorsement, but seems very willing to learn to ride the Spyder. I'm thinking that's a good thing! So, I'm looking for a most basic beginners class sort of thing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Y'all stay safe!

Age is just a number. Your passion for riding surpassed my age. Hope to see you on the road. Stay safe!

Search for MSF and try to contact the coordinator in your city or state.

That age thing comes to all of sooner or later. I will be 75 this year. Sold my Goldwing and bought a 2015 Spyder f3. Just getting used to it.

Stay safe indeed.

The cancellations should be temporary......but might last up to a year.

Just wait it out.
They should be back......eventually.
