    My dealer called last week and said they had a F3L ordered for a customer since fall and it just arrived (with all the parts yay) and the customer couldn't get financed .... So......out with the 21RT and in with the 22 F3L. Currently I have ridden it home ( 28 miles of bliss) and it is torn apart in the garage awaiting a large shipment from Lamonsters Garage of 7 or 8 items , a Madstad windshield and Bakers mirror and leg Wings, all due to arrive UPS tomorrow.
    Let the modifications begin! As you can tell by my signature , this will be the first F3 I have owned in 11 Spyders ( yes I have a problem lol) . I bought it without a test ride but based on how I "fit" . 5 miles in I was kicking myself for not switching earlier... Can't wait to pile on miles. So far I am not a huge fan of the dark matte finish.... the gas tank cowl is gloss black , the trunk lid is gloss black , I may wrap the hood gloss for some contrast.

    I ordered a Sea to Sky on Nov 7 21. It finally came in early May. Problem is it is still in a crate in a warehouse because it came without a windshield motor and reverse module. BRP told the dealer parts would follow in 4 to 6 weeks. Nothing yet. Then just last week BRP sent me an email that it will be missing the Pilot Backrest. They have discontinued the back rest permanently. Bummer. Very hard to remain patient at this point. The wife and I sold our motorcycles early this spring in anticipation of a March delivery. Now we walk.

    Sorry, but it means that you can enjoy your Spyder when it gets finished. GOOD THINGS ARE GOING TO BE coming very soon.

    That is a beautiful bike. What makes you like it more than the RTs you owned before?

    Thanks - The seating position . With th RT you sit up “on” the Spyder , the f3 you are much lower in the machine, lowers the center of gravity , handles like its on rails and I am 6’2” 265 pounds and I personally fit soooo much better. Hips are more relaxed etc.

    Blue, I love you positive attitude but I'm still waiting for my Spyder F3L that i ordered in October '21. When I check in with my dealer, he says he has no idea when it will arrive. It's hard to be upbeat when there's little to no info. Every beautiful day that goes by is one less day to ride this season.
