    Yep I’m pretty well a Spyder rookie and don’t plan to install until I get comfortable with the bike

    I installed mine 10 days ago and have only ridden it twice since then. It made me fall in love with my spyder all over again. No, it did not add anymore hp, but it just gives it to you without hesitation. 115 hp is not bad for the weight of these trikes, but it just hits so much harder (if you want), than it ever did before. I cannot wait until I get a chance to try it in some real tight twisties. Coming out of the corners will be insane.

    My take on this is " a hair trigger on a Spyder can be just as lethal as a hair trigger on a weapon" !!!! .... When I was an LEO I knew people who had their weapons " Altered " for less trigger pull .... one of them was fired because He did it to His service weapon, and it was discovered after an incident in which He had to use His service weapon ..... so IMHO you do this at your peril ...... good luck ....

    I still tell people about that guy. He found out that all those mods didn't mean a thing once you get on the really tight twisties.
    But yes, I know how dangerous it can be getting to heavy on the throttle coming out of a turn. I definitely plan on getting in some practice well before I get overly aggressive. As it stands, I am thinking sport mode and it's lowest setting will work just fine. Makes it a little more responsive without having too much of a hair trigger.

    Yep, I am definitely aware of how this thing can get away from you if you don't respect it. I will start in the lower settings and work my way only so far up the ladder. It is kinda like my mustang. It has normal, sport, sport 2, and then race mode. I have not used race mode too often because it turns off the traction control. Plus the computer resets and adjust to the driving style that you have. The previous owner was a 70 year old guy who just drove it to work on occasion. After a week of aggressive driving, it learned my style and adjusted transmission shift points and all. Felt like a totally different car.
    I do wish our spyders had adaptive cruise control like my car though. Even the newest BMW bike has adaptive cruise.

    "Hair trigger" is not what you get with a PC unless you choose to go that far. City has 9, Sport has 9, and Sport+ has 9 degrees of sensitivity. Most of us seem to have gone with a high City/low Sport for street riding. There's too much misinformation about the impact of this product.

    Sport at +1 is the sweet spot for my riding style and the roads I ride on.
