    Default Spyder Sightings

    Have you seen someone unfamiliar riding a Spyder ? Maybe you were out riding, or you saw one drive by while you were standing on a corner ? Describe the Spyder and where it was. Who knows, maybe you'll make a new friend. I'll start:

    Grassy Hill Road in Orange CT at the corner of Ridge Road about 6:30 on 3/21/2010. A silver Spyder traveling westbound, like he was heading to the Merrit Parkway. I was in my car, so I'm sure I went unnoticed.

    I'm surprised, I would have thought this to be popular. Oh well, who is John Gault ?

    I've seen 4 Spyder on the road in 34 months. Don't believe what that dealer told you. In a touristy town about a 2 hours drive away from Mexico City there was a Spyder dealer there. Two and a half years ago he told me that he sold 100 Spyders. A local dealer told me that agency had to close up and they hadn't sold even one Spyder. So there's a lot of BS out there. I haven't seen one Spyder out on the road in the last 6 months.
    A couple of weeks ago I saw an old 1969 Peter Sellers movie on TV called "The Party". It was crazy to say the least. But at the end of the movie he got on a three wheeled m/c that looked like a Spyder, and rode away on it. There's nothing new out there.

    Don't believe that dealer. I asked the same question to a dealer in a town called Valle De Brovo in Mexico. He told me he has sold 31 Spyders. A month later he went bankrupt. I was in the San Fracisco area the beginning of June this year for 8 days driving all over the south part of CA and until today I have not seen one Spyder on the streets there or here in Mexico City, only mine. I guess it's magic

    Leaving Oskar Blues parking lot last Friday evening. I was in my car and if I'd tried chasing you down, you would have thought I was a road rager or stalker

    Saw a blue RT at Bear Creek Park. It was parked behind the tennis courts. I was under the pavillion by the horse shoe pits.
