Not very comfy but the Spyder has let us back on the road again. Thank you to all that work so hard to keep us lurkers happy. Love the bike and love the forum.

    Thanks, Tom and Anita
    good for you and the ms's. Keep on riding my friend. Every day on the road is a good day. Ride Safe, Ride Often.

    I admire you for trying the Spyder thing..... I have seen some nice racks for wheelchairs, But I can't remember where …. You could contact " Wounded Warriors ", I'm sure they know of every rack made ……. I would suggest you Start your own THREAD " in the general forum " asking this question.....It is way more likely to get noticed.....jmho ….. Mike

    Good for you. That sounds like you are ready to enjoy riding. What kind of spyder are you looking for. That would probably help with finding the right rack for it. If you aren't able to find one maybe a metal shop could build one for you that fitts your needs. Happy trails my Friend. And good luck on your search.

    While it's not specifically Ataxia LeftCoast, I have an 'acute vestibular dysfunction' as a result of Blast Induced TBI, multiple TIA's, & the cumulative damage that results, so I pretty much get all the symptoms of Ataxia plus a few more besides!! The good thing about my overall condition is that while I have virtually no 'normal' balance standing up, once I sit &/or can establish a suitable 'stable starting position', a lot of the activities & events that arguably contributed to the collective issues I experience now have also meant that I've effectively 'trained myself' to do better than 'just manage' many activities without any balance function/assistance from/in my inner ears & brain. So (after extensive testing by a number of interested people/organisations) I can still ride, drive, pilot an aircraft or a boat, & more, mostly at a fairly high skill level, so I'm pretty lucky that way. Altho 2 wheeled bicycles & motorcycles in areas where there's a lot of 'peripheral activity' going on really isn't a pretty thing to watch, so I only ride those things waay out in the bush where the only one I can hurt is me! That said, I do have a few places that I just don't go & things I really don't do/actively avoid these days; but really, that's not such a biggie when you consider what people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, & similar permanent 'diseases' go thru every day! And I've been able to come home to my family & friends when so many others haven't - so I reckon I'm doing OK!

    Made my day seeing this thread! I have MS, most likely for many years, but not diagnosed until I was 50 when walking and riding two wheels became very difficult indeed. Thank you Spyder for letting me keep my face in the wind. I use a cane but am just about at the point where I need a 'walker.' Anyone else use a walker and if so, ever travel or mount a walker to the Spyder? If so, I'd be interested how you do it.

    Hi Tom, I'm looking for the exact same thing. Rack for a 'walker.' Hopefully we will find something. Good luck.

    I rode 2 wheels off and on since 1972 (all Harleys). But in the early spring of this year I started to develop pain/weakness in my left leg. Sciatic nerve issues plus arthritis and other problems in the hip made riding my 2015 Heritage Softail unsafe for me and those around me so I quit. Just after July 4th I purchased a 2019 Spyder RTL and I LOVE IT! So far I've got about 1,400 miles on it and feel very comfortable and safe. I have plans for a trip from Ft. Myers Beach to Key West in November and I'm really looking forward to it. P.S. I'm 72 years old and appreciate every mile that this bike allows me to travel!
