Cool Hi from Gulf Breeze Florida

I'm Dave, Don't have a Spyder yet. Been riding two wheels for the last 60 years. Age is catching up with me. Considered trikes as well. Any advise will be more than welcome.

I like my Spyder......but I don't love it like I did 2 wheels.

Given that at some point the change is inevitable, I made the switch while I could still adapt.
And the re-training took a LOT longer than I expected.

I made the switch at about 70.
A Spyder is NOT a motorcycle.

I'm still riding 2 wheels as well as new to the 3 wheeled Spyder's. Mainly bought the Spyder because my wife has been having issues getting on and off our 2012 BMW R1200GSA. Add to that her recent back surgery we decided the Spyder would be a good idea for most of our 2 up rides.

For me riding a Spyder reminds me of my snowmobile days. So far the transition hasn't been that difficult for me.
