I first saw the Spyder about a year ago. A mate sent me a youtube video. My first impression- different. I watched a few more videos, did a bit more research and sat on it for a while. They came to Australia and as one of the things you have to do- I added take a Spyder for a test ride to my list. I have had a lot of fun on jetski's, I have had a lot of fun on ATV's, I have owned a couple of sports cars, I have owned a few supersport motorbikes, so the Spyder kind of fits in the middle of there somewhere with benefits of all of the above.
So I finally took one for a test ride. Again- my frst impression was different. Then after a few corners- my different went to good- a few more corners- was just all smiles. Once you get over
- not having a front brake lever,
- trusting that you aren't going to roll,
- you steer instead of lean,
IT IS REALLY GOOD FUN.
