    Default Spyder F3 demo rides

    Greetings everyone,

    Wanted to let everyone know that Bradford Marine and ATV will be having demo rides on the new Spyder F3 at the following locations.

    This is NOT a parking lot demo. All that is requirred is a motorcycle endorsement on your current drivers license. You will be able to experience it under road riding conditions.

    The F3 demos will take place at the following locations and dates.

    Springdale, AR January 14 & 15, 2015

    North Little Rock, AR January 17th and 20th, 2015.

    I've not ridden it yet but really looking forward to checking it out in North Little Rock.

    If you have any questions, give me a call.

    i took my demo ride on the new F3 last Wednesday in 20F degrees... i wasn't 300 yards away from the dealer when i decide to buy one.... however, i did put on about 15 or so miles, just for kicks....
    i waited my 24 hr.
    'cool down' period before i put down the ca$h on an F3-S...
    i take delivery the 1st week in February... can't wait...

    I have a feeling that the introductory F3 model is going to have a banner year, similar to the 2014 RT.

    There will be some glitches I am sure. They were few and far between on the 2014 RT's though. I would have no fear of purchasing a F3 if I were in the market.


    It's like being given a choice of do I want a Charger or a Cadillac. So far, I am liking the Cadillac.

    Chuckster, do we need to pre-register or just show up? What hours are the demos in Springdale? Thanks. Gary

    I took advantage of the F3 demo ride last week. I was very impressed. The seating position, handling, engine power and smoothness...all terrific!
    I like that it uses the RS-spec instrument panel, meaning all analog, so it's not washed out by my polarized sunglasses, as the RT LCD panel is.
    My full-face modular helmet just barely fit in the trunk, in one position only, with room for gloves around it, but nothing else.
    If/when I am ready for my next Spyder, the F3 is my first choice. Good job BRP!
    PS - This bike is ticket-bait, the effortless acceleration is addicting!
