I've been getting emails advising of Spyder Demo Days !   

The email suggestion was to call and book a demo time slot; but the visual presence of the fine machinery is much greater in person than by telephone.  So... yesterday my wife and I stopped into the local dealer to talk about Demo Days.    As I expected, my question of how necessary of having some shifting experience might be brought the red flags "a-flying".    The Silverwing is my first bike and shifting is an evil necessity in the lives other bikes.  Well.... they were all set to book a slot for me until I made this known.  Which is also why a visit rather than a phone call was a wiser means of discovery. I would have hated to arrive on Demo Day to be rejected from taking a ride.  Could have been embarrassing.  So as it stands now, when the "right" day comes I will go to the dealer for some one on one instruction from the "sales advisor" I was speaking with, and then head out for a ride in their area.  The dealer is located in a new and developing industrial park, so there are miles of uncrowded freshly paved roads.   This sounds like a much better plan than learning in a group.  Maybe if I do this in a few weeks I will be ready for the Demo Day ride at the end of May.    From the short show room explanation yesterday, operation of the Spyder won't be terribly difficult to grasp.  They sure are cool looking machines.

If you can push a button you can shift a Sypder.  There is no clutch to pull.  It's simple.  Call them back and tell them to book you a date!  I never rode a motorcycle and jumped on a Spyder and off I went!

PS, you will love the Sypder.  It's a pretty aweome bike.


It's a scooterful day in the neighborhood!

Like Maggie said,if you can push a button... Our roadster has the SE system,just like paddle shifters,in fact it is a paddle shift of sorts. That, and it downshifts on it's own,you just can't beat it for what it is. A word of caution,most people that test ride Spyders...Buy Them.
