    Default Leaving the fold.

    I want to thank everyone for all of the help over the past year and a half. You all have been very helpful with problems I have had. This is indeed a great community with many people who are passionate about there Spyder. However, I never quite became passionate about the Can-Am. This is by no means bashing the product, just a different passion. I have decided to sale my Spyder and go back to two wheels. Today, I picked up my 2014 Honda Valkyrie F6C with 1700 miles on it. I took it on the chin with the trade but glad to be back on two wheels. As passionate at this website is about pictures..... here is my new ride.

    God Speed and may his angels ride with you.

    I had a similar experience. The Spyder is a fine machine that does everything it's designed to do but it just wouldn't lean going around corners and I needed that to be comfortable. Enjoy your new ride, I went back to a wing

    Enjoy by all means, you might want a Spyder in the stable again later. Nothing wrong with having both to enjoy ( a spare for when 1 is down for service or anything) know I enjoy both & the ability to swap back & forth.

    Don't go you can still hang out. You may pickup another Can am one day, maybe a Ryker for fun. I have My Spyder RT but I also have a HD Street for when I feel the need to lean into the corners. I Hope you enjoy your new ride Looks Awesome.

    Wishing you lots of miles and smiles on your F6. I took a licking too, when I traded an 06 Goldwing Roadsmith Trike, on our 2016 Spyder RTS!!

    I really like the Spyder, but still wish I had the Wing. Too many irons in the fire, to have two bike payments, and couldn't get the rear suspension

    set on the Trike so it didn't bother my wife's back. Enjoy your new ride - - safe travels.

    I wish you many healthy miles and smiles on your Valk. And if, or whenever, your body decides two wheels just aren't what it likes any more, you know what the best fall back is!

    My first Spyder was the RSS se5.
    I sort of liked the novelty of the Spyder but I grew to intensely dislike the 998 V-Twin with that transmission. Far too busy and crap mpg.
    Then Lamont recommended that I tried the F3. And I bought an F3-S..............Chalk and cheese!!
    Point I'm trying to make is that the ST is no longer typical of the Spyder experience. There is so much on that model that was improved beyond belief on later 1330cc bikes.
    I know you've made your mind up and got yourself a very nice Valk. I also think that this is a situation that may never have arisen had you tried an F3 first.

    I always thought the Pacific Coast was a great-looking, functional bike. Almost bought a used one, but the wife didn't like two wheels anymore and stopped riding. I have my son's Victory Gunner to get my two-wheeled fix.

    Mahaflac, Every bike is not for everyone. Some don't like v-twins, some don't like tourers, some don't like..... One must be happy with their ride. Congrats and ride safe!
