    I'd certainly like to see service centers/service providers in place. I wouldn't take my F3 to my "local" (45 minutes away) dealer after the delivery experience they gave me. Looks like I'll be...

    SpyderLady, I'm just becoming accustomed to my F3T (with the F3L trunk added) after a lifetime on two wheels. I live in the Carson Valley of Nevada, famous (or infamous, take your pick!) for heavy...

    I've broken my tailbone in the past and had real problems with it on some bike seats. None so far on the F3T.

    Same here, and I installed the trunk on my F3T. I'm sure that all connections were made properly.

    Do have a chat with Motorcycle Dave. He'll have good advice and the gear to back it up.

    Take any opportunity you can to test ride each flavor. You may find that one or another just doesn't work for you (as did the RT in my case) or that one model is an immediate fit (the F3 for me). ...

    krfish, I can't add much to what has already been said except to second the advice to test ride where/whenever possible to see which style you like. I did that and ruled out the RT as it made my...

    Having heard many complaints about the F3 heated grips, I decided to stick with heated gloves/glove liners. The only problem with them is that I have to remember to put them in the trunk... :D

    I feel your pain... we've had about one good ryding day here. Mother Nature can't make up her mind whether it's summer or winter; spring seems to be out of the question. Rain all week and maybe...

    Glad to hear that everyone walked away. Machinery can be replaced!

    I have to agree with the thought that if you want to go long distance on paved roads, pick the F3. If dirt roads and local rides are your thing, pick the Ryker. I picked the F3 because my wife and...

    Nice presentation! I've done the same, just a different button. I also added a connector so that if I have to strip that panel off, I don't have to unsecure the opener or mess with unscrewing...

    AAA+ here also. I've not had to use it for the Spyder... yet (knock on wood) but did for my Electra Glide; they sent a flatbed and did a good job.

    I bought a factory trunk to put on my 2017 F3T. It has the same issue, so far not a problem as long as I make sure that the lid tabs align with the trunk body when closing the lid. I will say that...

    No sweat, just happy to see someone else working on the problem. I'm nowhere close to being a good enough machinist to do it for myself.

    I use auto spaces as bike spaces around here are too small for a Spyder.

    I'd be interested if you develop a kit for the F3/F3T/F3L. I realize that would depend on having an owner near you who'd be willing to bring his F3 to you.

    I still use an ancient Roady because it doesn't have touch controls, it uses actual push buttons. It's also possible to buy a waterproof cover for it. When washing the Spyder, I either dismount it...

    Make sure that the dealer checks for other damage... my 2017 was rodent infested while in the crate. The dealer fixed the chewed wires but ignored the rat leavings that were deposited throughout the...

    Generic bicycle water bottle holder attached to a RAM mount that is bolted to Lamont's handlebar top cap. I've used the same or very similar setup for years on different bikes.

    I may have to start calling my F3 a "Spyker"... I've already got 'em confused with "Spyder", there not being too many out here in the wilds of NV, this would be just one more layer of confusion for...

    If you want to route music to the MotoChello or the J&M, it can be done. I used the same audio output and cable intended for use with the Sena transmitter. I got the cable from Motorcycle Dave. ...

    I got mine from eBay, a little cheaper than dealer price. Mine did not include the amp (and I didn't want it anyway) but the speakers came with the top case.

    Yes, it is. I thought the Victory top box lids were flimsy, but this is a whole 'nother dimension of fragile. Mine closes properly, now that I've shaved the lock's bolt recess so that it doesn't...
