    I'm getting to be in the same boat so-to-speak. I had two retina reattachment surgeries on the same eye in ten days. I'm also having lower back and knee issues making handling a big two wheeler a challenge in and out of my garage and backing out as well as low speed maneuvers with my legs pushing the weight. A real challenge would be if the nearly 900 pound bike would ever drop and I wouldn't be able to get it back up. Now that the eye is questionable I'm really thinking this a good time to make the switch to three wheels. I need to feel safer and more secure, especially if my wife wants to ride as passenger. My local dealer has a new leftover 2016 Spyder F3T reduced in price and that might be the ticket. Congrats on you getting your F3, I'm sure it was the right choice.

    thanks for the welcome guys
    den1953. I fully understand. I've had my knee done as well. I had been looking at a HD ultra until I tried to pull it up off the stand and felt it in my back that's not including my wife which isn't a small women, wasn't really interested in the HD or Honda trike, my internet searching showed me a third option the spyder. took a demo and no issue with the back, wife was happy and here I am. glad I found it!

    Default Welcome from another N. Texan

    Congrats on your purchase and welcome..! We too just pulled the trigger on our RT this past June and have never regretted it ..! Have already put over 3K mi. on it and have become very comfortable with it. It does take a while to get to that point if you’re used to 2 wheels. Maybe after the weather warms up we could all meet up and head out for a bit.
    Enjoy ..!
