Tom, how do you like your Spyder? I have added a line item in my budget for one of those?

I love the Spyder. We really use it for riding 2 up. We put twice as many miles on it as the Harley. Don't get me wrong, the Softail is my 7th new Harley since 2003. All touring bikes till now. The Spyder is so much easier and safer to ride. Plus the RTS with the windshield adjusted up removes almost all the wind so it can be ridden comfortably in much colder weather.

Awesome ...

Yea, at my advanced age, I don't think I want to start riding 2-wheeled bikes now. The trikes, such as the Spyder, are perfect for us older folks and the hills of Colorado.

So I'm assuming you have a flat bed for towing your two bikes. Or may be a Stacker.

Since I want to also tow a Jeep, I may go with a lift on the back of the RV for the Spyder. I don't think I'm ready to tow a Stacker all over the US while fulltiming.

Your situation is different from ours. I either take the Spyder (or Harley) behind the Motorhome in an enclosed trailer, or flat tow the Honda FIT. I do have a flatbed that would fit both bikes but have no reason to take both. I have never seen a lift for the Spyder like some 2 wheelers. Keep in mind the Spyder is 5 ft. wide, 9 ft. long and 4 ft. tall. It weighs close to 1,000 lbs. If fulltiming ,you might have to make some choices.

Spyders are wicked awesome. Test drove a 1000 touring. Lovely ride and quite quick. They now have a 1300. Just itching to try one.
