    Cool New rider in East Tennessee

    Hello! I just got my 2012 RT-SE5 delivered. So excited! I've ridden for years, as a passenger in the 80s and 90s and then got my M endorsement in the early 2000s. I've had a few bikes from a few brands and have always loved motorcycles and this is a totally new ride for me! Unfortunately, DH has zero interest in riding, so this is a hobby I do on my own. Not sure if any of the other ladies out there have the same situation, but anyways I am hopeful to meet some other folks on Spyders. I love to talk bikes. Wishing you all safe and fun rides for 2018!

    Default Welcome to the forum

    and congratulations on your new-to-you Spyder. You will absolutely love the ride. Give yourself some miles on the road to get comfortable. There is a period of time to learn how the Spyder handles. Be sure to check out the info here: http://www.spyderlovers.com/forums/s...-Spyder-owners where you will find lots of great help. Too, also ask questions of the knowledgeable riders here on the forum. Each is friendly and helpful. Welcome!

    .... After mastering the Spyder riding technique you will find you are spending less and less time riding the H.D.. Even if I could safely return to two wheels I wouldn't .... if you haven't found the Thread about the Spyder learning curve " Do's and Dont's " .... it's listed at the top of forum page ..... I am looking to re-locate to East Tenn. , probably Marysville or Sevierville area etc. ..... There are quite a few riders located in Knoxville area and another in Lancaster " kyspydergal " .................good luck, Mike

    Default Me Too New

    I'm also new to Spyder world. Picked up a 2012 RT LTD yesterday and rode it home in the rain with a trailer nearly 300 miles. I'm looking for some warm dry weather to really get the feel of it.

    I'm in Hiawassee, GA. Send me a PM if we are close enough to plan a ride or two. When the weather gets better.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! The "Do and Don't" sticky was EXCELLENT. I ordered my SpyderPops guard before the bike even arrived. Lots of great advice on here!
