    Default has anyone taken their spyder out of hibernation?

    I was looking at my sleeping Spyder Sunday. I almost uncovered it. I did charge the battery up. Hopefully I will have it running in the next couple of weeks.

    I took my spyder out last Friday. I have a few hours of riding in already. this is the earliest I have ever gotten it out. I had a complete service done when I took it out of storage. my dealer charged me $350 which included an oil and filter change.

    Default Curious. ....

    What is this hibernation you are talking about... have seen many posts of folks that have been able to get out there. Murphy Brown is up and running for the start of her season but I should let them all tell you....

    Both are ready to roll. All I have to do is check the tires for pressure, unplug the battery tender, turn the key and they are running. 40 ft. of glare ice in my driveway still holding me up. I am hoping to fire mine up this week sometime.

    Default New Mexico has some perks

    Drove the RSS on and off during the winter, but it's New Mexico. Bought the F3S last month and been driving it as much as I can to work.

    I never put mine in hibernation; she's been available all winter. If the streets are clear, I bundle up and ride.

    Just took my RTL out of storage today. Gotta go for a spin. Have some goodies coming from Baja Ron for it.

    Edit: just got back from a 40 mile ride. Damn it felt good to get out.

    We are just waiting for some rain to wash the roads of the salt. We have had two days of rain now, and as long as the temps hold up and they don't put down anymore salt, then we are good to go.

    No hibernation, even in NY/NJ. Just avoid the active snow and ice. It has been a relatively mild winter and great riding. Come join us!

    I knew it was going to happen. No snow since the first of February. Last night, we got an inch or so. It is already starting to melt though. Next week for that first ride?

    I put the battery in mine this evening. Started right up. No rough idle. I was glad. Checked all lights and tire pressures. Set time and date. Listened to the radio and all is good. First ride maybe this weekend.
