A New "Toad"

Even thought it's not actually towed!
It's my new 2018 Can Am Spyder RT-L 10 Anniversary Edition...
(The Black and Gold color scheme is the clue...)

The footage is horrible! This was my first attempt at videoing anything, and I haven't got a clue about any editing possibilities.
But it'll be travelling with us in the garage!

Thanks! We actually ordered last June, and even traded in our old Spyder at that time...
Losing an entire Summer's worth of riding is ROUGH!!

Thanks! Once my health made it tough to keep a "leaner" upright: this was the next step.

We're gonna have to meet up, and see if we can figure out whose handlebars are on the wrong end of the bike...

That is a beauty. Every time I see one of those on the street or highway I get the desire for one myself. Congrats

Actually the video wasn't bad at all.

You're being too kind (about the video.)
If you've got the interest: take a test ride!
(But leave your wallet, checkbook, and any expensive watches home: it might save you from making the leap! )

They handle nothing at all like a motorcycle! The feel a whole lot more like an ATV, or a snowmobile.

My son sent me the picture of a guy on a Harley trike wearing a t shirt that said "friends don't let friends drive Spyders!"
Good looking, but they do look backwards.

Do you know why they don't?

Because if they did: there'd be a lot of Harleys in the front yard; with "For Sale" signs hanging on them!

Hey Bob, nice ride!

One of our forum friends from our rallies pulls his Spyder behind his Vegas on a small trailer. He took it all the way to Prince Edward Island last summer, and had a blast. Maybe he'll bring it to our spring rally.

Cool!

When the Missus and I got to shopping for rigs: our first thought was to buy a trailer for the bike.
We were specifically looking at a Compass or Gemini, and an Ultimate trailer.
We realized something!
It would total out to almost 40 feet in length!
Our current setup is only 31 feet long...
Our sleeping arrangements aren't as nice, but we were willing to make that trade-off.
