Hy All, I'm an older guy. Started riding when I was 14, thats been more than 45 years ago. My passions are Motorcycles and Airplanes. I currently have 3 BMWs in the garage and an airplane at the air field. I,m looking for an education. My current bikes weigh in at 780-1000 lbs. Issue is my hips are going bad and I'm told that I need to be prepared that the day is coming soon when I won't be able to hold a bike up any more and I'm determined that I'm not going to quit. So, if you don't mind I'll just lurk around the edges and try to learn something.

Welcome, Brick!! Feel free to lurk, this is a great group of people. There are several of us who have bodies that are giving us trouble with regular two-wheel vehicles, and have turned to Spyders. I find I'm having more fun on my Spyder than I did on the motorcycle, the biggest reason being the lack of pain when I ride.

Feel free to lurk. Just because you don't currently own a Spyder doesn't mean you can't contribute to the group. You ride motorcycles and I'm sure you have a lot of stories that might be revelent to some of the questions raised here. Also you are a pilot - always a good source of stories. What type is it?

Welcome

Feel free to look and ask questions. I never really rode a twp wheeler before so your inout on the comparrisons can be helpful.

I'm setting in a hospital bed as I write this. My body is getting old and alreay running on spare parts. This was of the reasons I came to ride the Spyder. It helps me feel alive (and feel like I can stay alive) while riding in the open air.

The no holding up a bike in stop and go traffic is great.

Sitting in a hospital bed? Anything serious? Will you still be able to ride? Hope you get better soon. David
