My specs, im 6'3 290 will this thing be comftorable for me longest trip is going to be 100 miles max one way. also well thats really the only concern lol, but feel free to post pics of you on youre spyder if youre around my height and how long should i expect to wait if i have to order one because some of the dealers close to me have them for sale but the might sell them before i choose to buy.

Well I am 5'8" 200 lbs and 60 years old. I just rode 1101 miles to death Valley and back ( over 3 days). I feel fine and the machine worked great. I actually got it up to 113MPH on the GPS going up hill into a head wind. I thought it was limited to 110 but it was me that gave up before it was ready to quit.

I hear the wait is 6 months. There are always scalpers on e bay if you don't want to wait.

If you crave attention this is the machine. I cannot stop any where without getting into a conversation about it. Lots of thumbs up from pedestrains also. Great fun

I can only speak from my brief rides so far, but I can say comparatively speaking..... it rides wonderfully smooth. I sought out pot-holes during my Detroit ride (not to hard to find:)) hitting them at up to 50 mph with left or right front or just the rear, the Spyder just drove right through and I could not even feel them. Engine vibration was non-existent and exhaust (to) quiet. I cannot imagine a better cruiser. Seating position was fine for me (5'10", 160 lb.). It was much more comfortable than the last Goldwing independent rear suspension trike I had.

I've seen Ebay sales lately very close to MSRP, this one in Cadott WI went for $16,000, starting bid was $15,800: Link to Cadott Spyder Sale

It seems that supply is catching up slightly with demand, "Buy-it Now" prices on Ebay have come down quite a bit, ther is even a neat Lambo Orange one on there right now.... it would go good with my Brazen Orange Viper :)

The dealer I am working with feels that he should get his 6-8 weeks after he places his order... in August. That seems pretty fast to me, but he sells lots of Seas Doos and Can-Am 4-wheelers, and seems to know the ordering system pretty well.

Cadott Sale

I read the listing on this one a little closer, at a $16,000 sale price, it likely was sold for what it cost the person to buy, as it was a private party sale, not a dealer.

This one in Clearwater,FL sold for $16,850. With more potential buyers living a lot closer than the Cadott seller had, he did a little better :)
