It never takes much to get me to talk about anything. Some here encouraged me to write about my new adventures with the Spyder.
Like a lot of Spyder riders, it began with leg problems that ended a 67 year run on two wheels. It was fun while it lasted. Not interested in trikes, the only way to stay in the wind was with a Spyder.
My wife, Carol and I rode about 200K miles together, but although she tried, she wasn't agile enough to ride on the XR and said, it was fun while it lasted, you go and have fun on it.
Fast forward to a week ago, the two of us went to the dealer (the same one I bought the Victory from back in 2010) and we both tried to mount the RT touring model that I thought I wanted. I could mount it, but the legs wouldn't let me sit on it - ouch!
Next to the RT, was this very cool looking F3 Limited and we tried it out and we both fit! We were so happy about that, because not only is the F3 sportier, it was a helluva lot cheaper, because it was a 2017 leftover.
That's enough for now....to be continued.
Next; The old guy freaks out on the test ride.
