Spyder in the forest

Well saturday we got up and went to the shop to pick up the bikes. Tim rode his 1098 and I rode my Spyder. We went through the national forest and up to Yankee's. The Spyder was a blast I already have about 225 miles on her and can't wait to get back on the road. My comfort level has increased 10 fold on this bike. I found that an increase in speed in the curves is a plus. When I used to ride my 250's I would get butterflies in my stomache and sweaty palms and shaking of the knees, I have none of this with the spyder. I sold my 2007 nija with 287 miles after having it for a bit over a year and my 2008 nija 250 had 327 after having just over a year. I know that this bike is going to be different. I have never had so much fun with my clothes on in all my life. They were having a benifit and had lots of vendors out at Yankee's and found myself a shirt that says " This dont ride " on the front and has "one bad " on the back with a big white spider between my shoulder blades. I would like to thank Spyderrider for introducing me to my new love and look forward to going on every ride I possibly can. will post pics of our bikes in front of yankee's in a bit You should have seen all the Harley riders scatching thier heads trying to figure out what it was, one of them came up right after we pulled in, I think he may have had one too many brewsky's because he wanted to know if I drove backwards all the way there because he saw me pulling in backwards Had a great time and ready to go again.

I am so glad you are having so much fun on it and glad to hear there is not the anxiety like with the other bikes.. Once I heal up I will have to come up to the shop so you can take me for a ride.

I have no mods what so ever and it will boil the rear tire with no problem. Ebay has tons of them on there for cheaper than what I paid for mine.
