First, thank each of you who gave me feedback about buying a new Spyder. I just inked a deal with the Lodi dealer. He gave me the best price and will even trailer MY new RT to my home. Lodi is a 2 hour drive one way. I bought a RT A&C in Orbital Blue. It will be delivered Wednesday or Thursday. I did take a ride over to Livermore for a visit with Kregg as suggested. He's a great guy but his asking prices were more than $3K above what I paid. I'm really excited to get started with my new ride. I'll be looking for riding partners and or clubs in the bay area. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them. Thanks again for the help. I'll post a photo when the my new bike arrives.
