It gets worse mpg than a civic, accelerates slower, and is about just as expensive.

Sounds almost as cool as a fedora!!

Cool, you have a $20k toy that is slightly faster than a civic. That still means it's slow as . Doesn't it have a cobalt motor in it? The car government motors sympathetically put out of its misery.

I still don't understand how something that steals the idea of the t-Rex ends up weighing a ton and ends up with a car motor

Many women are scared they "can't hold a bike up" in spite of reassurances that's what the tires do.

Just sayin, calling anybody that rides a spider a is a little harsh.

I was riding through Pagosa Springs, Co and I saw a guy riding a Spyder with a wheel chair strapped on the back of it. His legs were strapped to the Spyder. I thought it was pretty awesome the guy was riding and obviously had some sort of disability.
