Looking for Spyder Riding Group in Ottawa area

Purchased a new Blue RTS in 2011 and love it !! Now I'm looking for other Sypder enthusiasts.

Are there any groups in the Ottawa area ?

I've seen many Spyders around ... I'm in the west end ...

Cheers,
Mike.

I'm in the Orleans area of Ottawa.

Don't know of any club either.

I got a buddy in the Casselman area with a Spyder and I've seen a few in the Rockland area.

Pretty quiet in these forums, and I guess, it'll be even more so over the next 6 months of winter here in Ottawa.

Just joined, but would be interested in meeting some riders in the area.

Hi gchislett, as you can tell from my user name, I'm from the Ottawa area, used to be in Orleans but have since moved out of the city to eastern Ontario.

There is an Ontario Spyder group "Ontario Spyder Riders" on Facebook but they are based in southern Ontario.

In Ottawa, there is nothing that I know of.

However, in Gatineau (Hull), there is an organized group, they often hold events at the Gatineau site of the Loiselle Sports dealership.

I have to agree with ottawa-rider. I live in the Cornwall area, bought my first Spyder privately from a VanKleek Hill owner, (a Quebec machine). I then traded it at Loiselle in Casselman in the early Spring this year. I see other machines around the area but judging from the activity on this site, there is little organized activity. I have looked at the dealership to see if there are any flyers or posters announcing meets. Not much going on, it seems.
It may just be a question of numbers. I ride motorcycles too, and there are often marque-specific clubs who are always doing breakfast runs or charity events. I've seen a couple of Spyders at Rideau Carleton at the Wed Evening Old Car Show. (In the Parking lot).
I actually see many Spyder riders riding with a pack of motorcycles, and that seems to be a more common sight now. I suspect the Spyder people were bike riders who for one reason or another gravitated from 2 to 3 wheels. I'm 77 and it is just a safer and more comfortable way to ride. (Mind you, I can't seem to quit bikes altogether....still have 2...BUT no two-up riding on the bikes anymore.)
