I don't regret for a moment trading in my Goldwing for my new RT, but I am getting some ribbing by riding acquaintances and some friends. Things like "you have to turn in your motorcyclist card" and "you started on a tricycle, and now are back to a tricycle" and the like. It made me wonder if Spyder riders consider themselves riders, or motorcyclists, or drivers. I myself teased an old friend who now rides a Slingshot, telling him that his car seems to have lost one of its wheels, so I guess I deserve the teasing. I still consider myself a motorcyclist, even if my motorcycle is one with three wheels instead of two. The funny thing is that I have not heard similar comments made to those switching to conventional trikes with the two wheels in back.
