    Default Greetings from QLD, Australia

    Just sold my Harley and other 2 wheeled toys and sticking with the Spyder due to my body failing me....
    Been lurking for a while, followed Spydermates' journeys over the last few years, and have come sooo close to getting one over that time, but finally bit the bullet this month.

    Loving the change.!

    There's quite a few more of us Aussies around nerfbatt, not only just here but also on OzSpyderRyders.

    Glad to hear you finally bit the bullet, altho it probably won't be as painful as some will try to tell you it is - but it might take a coupla hundred km to start getting really used to the 3 wheels/reverse trike. Still, once you do get up to speed you'll very likely really love it BECAUSE of the differences just like most of us do! There's a very good reason behind the saying that our Spyders bring us Miles of Smiles! And the fact that our Spyders keep us out there with our knees in the breeze even tho our bodies might be making it a little more challenging is just an added bonus!

    Enjoy, & welcome aboard!

    Hey Australian Brother

    Sorry to hear its going a bit **** up on you. Good to see you are still getting out there amoungst it.

    Love the RSS, I do need a bit more from a bike Id be buggered in 20 minutes max riding that at freeway pace or worse in the twisties.

    Im in Vic at the moment but planning a move to Cairns to get away from this achy colder weather still single figures degrees overnight!

    Then we will see whats what in the world.

    Cheers to you and ride safe

    Onya Nerf (or is it Batt?). Welcome to the group. That’s a nice looking RSS and you already look pretty comfy on it This is one of the most helpful forums I’ve been on. Great bunch of guys and gals. Ask any question you like and you will (mostly) get informed, knowledgeable replies. .....just make sure you have topped your screen up with ink before you start reading any of Peter Aawen’s replies

    Congratulations on your nice looking spyder! Like you I switched from 2 wheels to 3 a few years ago. It may take a few rides to get comfortable with how the spyder handles differently than 2 wheel rides. For me it was a short adjustment period and I have had a blast since I got my spyder. I wish the same for you!
