The list is on the Spyderlovers site and is now well over 50 orders for GT-S (PE) and close to 20 trailers.
My RT-S PE SE5 is on order and will be here sometime in March.
Without personal experience I'm just a "lurker" now, collecting information.

Pre-Order RT-S

In September I pre-orded a 2010 RT SM5 with trailer hitch (I'll get the trailer later). It should be here in March. In the meantime I purchased a 2009 SM5 to get me over the hump (I'll be selling it when the new one comes in).
I don't think I qualify for the extras because I didn't order the fancy model.

I wonder if the after-market stuff (highway pegs, foot rests, Corbin seat, etc.) will fit the 2010 models or will we have to wait.

I did and it was the RT-S Timeless (got it right this time) Black. We ordered November 15, 2009, and were told about the "extras". We were also told that delivery would not be until sometime in January. I live in the Central, Flarda, area, and note that someone in the same general area (Paisley) received hers.

We're hoping that ours will be coming sooner than had been expected. Riding weather in Flarda is 24/7/12. I've suggested perhaps when posting, to list the "order date". That way I can groan when I hear of someone getting theirs with a later order date. :)

When I talked to Mike Corbin, he said they would soon have a touring model to begin the prototyping/developing parts very soon. He did say the seat would be different, and that they were going to make a trunk and "top" for it too. Yes, a real top. Pretty cool. I'm thinking he means a top top that extends from the end top the windshield over the passengers to the back of the Spyder. Maybe it will be an integrated windshield and top.

The SE5 version should make for a really nice package, practice makes perfect!

I found a picture of a concept Honda with a roof, not sure how Mike Corbin will style the Corbin top, but I'm sure it will be a nice adder to the RTS.

Ordered my PE on December 12th; Arrived January 20th.

Ordered mine from Pete's Cycle, Baltimore MD on 12/12. Arrived January 20th. It's currently prepped and ready, except for the GPS ... oh ... and sub-20-degree weather and currently an inch of snow. GPS is backordered for a couple of weeks. Gonna wait until everything is done before picking up. Today (1/30), I'm going to brave the roads and go see it, kiss it; pet it and lay down some more money. I'll take a pic of the serial number!

Yeah, I ordered mine also in November but the I-Pod deal is off because I ordered the blue one. I E-mailed the company to let me know why only the black RT-S was in that deal but nobody ever returned my call. I'm still gonna enjoy my blue RT-S though.

I'd been a member on the SpiderLovers forum since October and had the feeling the Orbital Blue would come without the Nano and the Cover and got the idea they also wouldn't have a PE # stitched into the seat. That's why I didn't order the Blue. Liked the perks.
