Greetings
Do not own a Spyder but looking....hard. I ride a Ural almost daily when home and enjoy it greatly. The Spyder appeals to me as an option for highway travel.....kinda weird my Ural is 40s technology for the most part and the Spyder is buck Rogers.
I like the simplicity of the Ural. Most any problem can be solved in my garage, the Spyder looks to be other wise. Thus my concerns. The computer problems that seem not too uncommon....have these issues been resolved? What about the computer not letting you really getting a feel of the machine. It is pretty cool taking the Ural out flying the car and drifting around corners...will the Spyder too tame with the computer nanny?
Whats up with the gas milage? Is it 22 or 35/40? I can live with 35 but 22 is nutz. My 750lb 40s tech ural gets between 28 and 38 depending on how hard I push her. I suspect that the guys who only get 22 on the Spyder only have two speeds all stop and all out. What kind of milage can one really expect to get when you are not laying hard on the gas?

Thanks
RAL

Welcome! Most owners say the mileage is between 32 and 37 mpg, like you said, depending on driving conditions. I can only quote what I've read as I'm soon to be an RT-S owner and have no personal experience. So far a test ride is what I have to go by and although fun, it was too short to make an educated judgement. I like all the toys though!

Thanks for the reply Beechers. This seems to be a pretty dead forum. Hope it is not indicative of the level of interest the average Spyder owner has after purchase:eek:

This forum "seems" dead because Spyder owners prefer to ride rather than post. :D:D:D

IMHO, Q & A's are a fact of life and having somewhere to get the A's is a nice thing. Did I misinterpret the idea behind a forum? As I understand it a forum is a place for like minded folks to communicate with each other. It's what happens on other forums. I might suggest you check out the other forums also, where other Spyder riders do interact verbally, unless all you want to do is ride!
