    Default Hello from the Free State of Jones

    Picked up my new 2017 RTS Saturday from Hattiesburg Cycles. Put a whopping 112 miles on it before the cold returned. Always said I loved Mississippi because I could ride all year. Not this year. If this is global warming, you can have it. Been riding since I was 12. 74 now and love the stability of the Spyder. Had a trike - hated it. Like riding in a pickup with the windows down - boring. Put an outrigger kit on my 2008 Roadstar. It was ok but hard to steer. Gave it to my son. Looking forward to many miles on "Samantha." Here she is

    Title of a Movie with Mathew McConaughey about a revolt against the Confederacy in Jones County Mississippi! Pretty good film, but failed at the Box office!

    Default Welcome....

    Glad you jumped into the 🎪. You sure tried all the combinations till you got to the spyder. Better way to do it cause you have experience on all combos and confirm that the spyder is the best....

    Welcome from San Antonio, People's Republic of Texas. Nice looking Spyder and with the trailer hitch too. Well done.
