    Shad Bags

    The Shad bags grow on you. When I installed mine I intended to remove them when not needed, but now the bike looks naked without them. I like the look much better than the Can Am bags.

    The module for the F3S can be added to the base F3. I'm planning to have it done in July or August since it will be too hot to ride then.

    The season will be ending here in the Phoenix area in a month or so unless you enjoy riding in 110 degree heat. It seems to end in June and not start up again until late September.

    When you install the lights, get the Can Am heat shields, they are inexpensive, less than twenty bucks, and add a finished look to the installation by filling the gaps around the lights.

    I let my wife talk me into trying the two up shock and was very surprised that it worked for us. I fully expected to buy one, then have to spring for the aftermarket shock when it didn't work.

    It's probably the same place as a standard F3, right side, bottom of the bike near the forward peg. I had to buy the service manual to find it when I replaced my horn.

    Before resorting to changing an expensive starter, I'd clean and retighten both the positive and negative battery cables. It could be as simple as a little corrosion under a clamp.

    Yo can rent a ten foot long storage unit in a self-storage facility to keep your Spyder and riding gear. It looks like the rates run between forty and one twenty bucks a month.
