I am new to this forum and looking into getting a Spyder semi-auto. I have Cerebral Palsy, have an M endorsement on my license and have a 3-wheeled scooter. I need something bigger and more dependable to keep up with my Harley-riding husband. I am mobile and teach High School. My scooter is a 300cc so I am not afraid of speed. The only issue I may have is actually getting on the thing. I can sit on the Harley and put my leg over in the front instead of over the back. I figure I can lean back and put my hand on the back hand-hold. If anyone has any better ideas I sure would appreciate it. I also noticed the foot pegs. They don't appear to be too low. I am pretty short and have not had a chance to go see one up close and personal. We plan to go sometime this week. Please tell me about reaching the brake pedal too. I know there is a mod where you can put a hand brake on the the handlebar. I'd love to get lots of information before I actually buy one.
