Having picked up my new 2012 Spyder RT-S less than a week ago, I just want to say, WHAT A MACHINE. I sold my 2012 BMW K1600 GTL to buy this Spyder and I'm happy I made the move.. I'm a 65 yr. old retire police officer and the BMW was just alittle too heavy for me to handle. I just ordered the "foot rest kit" from Madstad Engineering (a little expensive @ $329.99) but these foot rests let you stretch out your legs on longer rides. My question is has anyone tried these foot rests on their Spyders and are they worth the $329.00 I spent for them. Thanks in advance for your responses.
