Hi All,

My name is James and I have been a motorcycle guy off and on for most of my life. Unfortunately back at the end of 2019 I had a Windowmaker (LAD) heart attack with some loss of function and strength/energy levels that made it hard for me to ride a 2 wheeler safely. I recently sold my last motorcycle a 2014 Honda CTX 1300 Deluxe that I really loved and enjoyed riding. I had never thought of a three wheeler until recently when I started wanting to ride again.

I looked at converted Honda Goldwing with a trike kit but they are very expensive and not in my budget. Then I started looking in to a Can-Am and have been dong some research to see just what would work for me. I went and looked at a few at a local used dealer and that helped me even more. I went to go look at a 2014 Spyder St Limited SE5 that looked good and had low miles, it was being sold just as we arrived so we just looked at a few others that had. I found the dealership to be quite rude.

I found what I think is just want I want but would like some advice. I found a 2019 Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited with very low miles. First off, opinions on that year and model? Next what would be a fair price to pay. Miles are under 4K, and it is in very good condition. Looks almost new, no upgrades that I know of.

I appreciate any advice anyone may be able to provide.

I will be back with updates.

Thank you,
James

So......for future posts, please PLEASE format your text into paragraph or sentence breaks.
Something like post #13 above.

Without that, one big BLOB of text is hard to read on a screen.

Thanks in advance.
At least he used punctuation. 馃榿
BTW. Those lids. Mine was wobbly after a Wing lid.
The blokes at F4 make some stick on guides that make the lid closing much better.
I just got my stick on guides to align my rear lid from F4, but there are no instructions or even a picture of them installed. Can someone please send instructions or at least a picture so I know how these are installed.

Thanks,
James
Ha snap!. I got no instructions as well. I have looked every where for where they fit but found nothing.

I have e-mailed F4 and asked the question. Waiting out now.

Cornering is something else.

I have just finished a 3 day ride that was all corners.
I will post some photos later today hopefully.

I find pushing the bar with the outside hand and down on the leg and allowing my body to lean just a little inside the corner works for me. Sort of Yin - Yan I guess.

I dont mind admitting it took me ages to get comfortable with that.

Sometimes if you put some spaces in the posts its makes it easier to read. ;)

If you get some and manage to fit them im all ears?

So far I have not had a reply from F4.

Anybody else got the info on fitting those trunk alignment blocks?
F4 sent me a video but its over 18 MB. I captured a couple screen shots to show where they mount. Sorry that's the best I can do until I install mine and take a few better pics. They mount on the outer way area (one only for each arm) and the wedge shape helps align the lid.

Ahhh ok. I hadn't thought of there, but now I see it that makes perfect sense.

Cheers James. Awesome. (y)
