    This was a great review... I've considered the Morgan when shopping but that price tag is way beyond my reach and lacked technology. The Slingshot for me was to much of a car with very little storage but a decent price so I settled on my RT L w/no regrets....

    Default Well....

    Things have changed since then.. the spyder no longer fits in that grouping. as many have adopted to call them autocycles the spyder is out... but I it was a good read..

    I think that you are both wrong. First, if we are going to lower ourselves to correcting every misspelled or grammatically incorrect statement on this site then, I quit, spellcheck and such on phones and tablets is more wrong than right and besides that so what. "The purpose of communication is the transfer of thought from one person to another, as long as you understand what was meant, it matters not what I said!" Unless you are an English teacher and in that case you are naturally annoying anyway, so preach on, nobody is listening.

    Secondly, the rather negative cursing was not really necessary, you are better than that. Just accept it that Mike is annoying on occasion, but he means no harm, and he is often able to offer rather unique and helpful dialogue to many issues that come up.

    Yes, as mentioned more than once this video has been around but it is still interesting to review.

    As far as the Morgan being cool, well maybe from a nostalia point of view but not much else, as they state, it is very limited, it is very cramped, all of that is a nice way of saying that it is low performance, all show and no go, and very uncomfortable, period!

    The Morgan is more about style, than it is function...
    But it has buckets of style, and is a guaranteed head-turner!

    IMHO... of course!

    They didn't like the Spyder's nanny. Go figure!

    But they obviously didn't know how to ride it, or they'd have done better in the curves.

    I didn't care for the review. They obviously didn't know how to ride the Spyder and they spent a third of their time blathering on about is it a car or is it a motorcycle? And it is old news.

    Yes I did expect that but I didn't expect so much time debating "what is it ?",like they might actually be able to decide.

    Just being your typical obnoxious self. You especially like it because it is me. No problem, Your word means nothing, just like Bob's. When you say you will ignore someone, them continue to stalk them, well. Typical internet warrior!

    FYI, from anyone else I would have taken it with a grin, and an apology for auto-correct.

    By the way, I never saw it before, neither have some others. There is no harm in showing it again!

    Not so much a swear word as it I'd just inappropriate for the forum. Remember you can ignore Mike and you don't have to misconstrue his comments and have your feelings hurt

    I could, but he claimed he would ignore me. His word is meaningless. As for feelings, if he didn't act like he does, no ones feelings would be hurt Simply because he occasionally gives reasonable advice, and he has been around a while, people put up with his nonsense. Not me.
