    Default Loving my 600.

    I am loving my 600 Ace Ryker. I have put on 1300. miles with no hitches, or complaints. I have tackled some wild curve and hills, on Rt. 9, from Lisbon Oh to Carrollton, Oh and on Rt. 43 to Wintersville, Oh. The ride of your life! The right front wheel lifted of the ground a couple of time, which had the pulse pounding. I'm 74 and having a blast on my Ryker and I don't need the 900 or the Rally to get'er done.

    Yes I agree my 600 has about 600 mi on it and has been nothing but a blast. Also I'm 66 and I don't need the speed or off pavement excitement the other 2 Ryker offers, maybe if I was younger I would but for now I'm just having fun. farmer 54(frank)

    I love my Ryker 600! I've had it since December and have over 2800 miles on it. I have had one part fail, but it was replaced under warranty, no problem (the Yaw Sensor went bad). I also have noticed that even though the dealership has performed an alignment, the wear on the 2 front tires is severely biased toe out and the tread on the inside of both tires is almost gone at this time (have to find a Rolo Laser Alignment shop!) .

    Agreed!, the 600 Ryker is plenty fast and has more than enough power on tap to satisfy anyone for day to day road duties




    I demo'd this 600 last month at the Ocala Fla. Can-Am dealer (this dealership also sells yamaguchi, etc.). Prior to setting up this demo a few days before, they had a 900 for me to ride except when I showed up, the 900 was sold the day before. That said, a week later they had two 900 rally's for me to ride, and I rode one of the two. For sure, the 900 has way more power but all in all, I don't see how anyone could find the 600 anemic, it isn't. I'd have no problem buying the 600

    I'm sorta in the market for a Ryker. Current motorbike is a 92' BMW R100GSPD. The reason I'm looking to get into a Ryker, a year ago February I had a total robotic knee replacement and my follow up,therapy didn't go very well. I'm lacking range of motion (left knee) which makes it hard for me to toe shift the tranny on the R100GSPD. What I end up doing to shift gears is to use the heel of my boot in front of the shifter. It's awkward yet doable (((BUT))), the Ryker is so much more comfortable to ride with the feet forward ergonomics

    I'm no stranger to CVT trannies. I aso own and ride a 2013 Vespa 300cc GTS that utilizes a CVT transmission, & there's been other CVT scooters I've owned in the past, starting with an 85' 250cc Honda Elite motorscooter I bought new that year

    Hey Geo333, we are neighbors. I’m just west of Alliance and have ridden down your way a lot. I’m pretty old and have been ryding nearly all my life. Now a days I like to explore mostly secondary roads and enjoy the scenery. Maybe we will cross paths in the future. cueman

    Back again. Going on 5,200 mi and loving it. No issues. I am waiting to have a new windshield, from F4 customs completed. I will give an opinion on it, after some miles with it on.

    I just went over 6000 miles on my Rally. The only issue was leaking oil in the rear wheel and the dealership gave me a new drive shaft. It is a lot of fun to ride!

    F4 Customs did a bang up job making the Ryker windshield. I could not be more satisfied. Over 6,000 miles and humming beautifully.

    is the 600 freeway comfy? curious, and always willing to save a buck....and even if I get a Ryker, my RS-S is a damned rocket now, I am NEVER selling that trike.... and I cant wait for the Monster tune to get back.....Anyway, I am looking at the Ryker (preferably the 600, and I just wanted to know how it handles 70 to 75 mph?

    Thanks.

    Hey, I purchased my Ryker Rally at the dealer in Ocala, Fl. I had to go all the way to Eustis to test ride a Ryker, as the dealer in Ocala only had one (sold) in the show room. They were selling as fast as they got them in and put them together. As a matter of fact, the day I went in to pick mine up, someone had just stolen a Spyder off the lot and law enforcement was taking a report.
