    Default New to the Spyder World

    So I love speed and plans were to go back to riding crotch rockets but my wife didn't like my plan....So here I am. Three weeks ago I went out and purchased a 2017 Spyder F3-T cause they seemed to have some sport to them and a backseat to keep her happy. I'm learning to get use to not dragging my knee and hoping to have some fun with this new machine. The only thing I can say that has stood out to me is I think they need another gear. RPM's seem high at highway speeds around 80 mph. I'm looking forward to learning lots of great info from all of you and thanks for letting me join.

    Isn't it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture offend so many people......
    but our benefits don't?

    Compared to the 998 twin cylinder they do have another gear. Six vs. Five. The 998's did not come alive until above 5500 rpms. The red line was somewhere around 9,000 (forgive me if I am not perfect on this). The 1330's like the 3,500 range but higher is not an issue. Red line is around 7,500 on the 1330's. You are not going to hurt the engine if you go fast. The rev-limiter will prevent you from to high an rpm application.
