I have ridden Harley's for 20 years (and faithful to my last ride of 13 years). My mother (also an avid harley rider) recently had a bad incident with a deer and we would all feel better if she was on three wheels. Well, while looking at the Can Am Spyder RT, I have found that I am much more serious about getting one than she is. We are going to rent an RT next weekend (11/20)and see what it's like. My girlfriend is not real excited about the Harley, but the extra wheel and added weight, I think makes warm up more to the Spyder too. I have looked over many of the criticisms of the Spyder line and many seem to come from people who were dedicated Moto-Tour types (Goldwing and BMW). I don't expect the Spyder to feel like a motorcycle and I'm sure that the Spyder will have enough power for me. I'm excited! I'll ket you know what my first impressions are this weekend. Since cost will be a factor, I think that I am shooting more for the base RT. The dealer that I went to had a good price on a 2010 model.
