    I hear you Ronnie, I am so ready to make a change from the GW/RS, but I am so not ready to jump on the Canam RT knowing what I hear and read about BRP service. So, until I until I am ready to make that giant leap of faith at serious cost, I will continue to do what I do. By the way, I did not read about any Spyder at the MV TT Ride In this year. I do believe that Spyder has their own dedicated Maggie event.

    If you would like to do further Spyder research, attend the 3-wheel rally in Deadwood, SD. It began as a Can-Am event and still has a lot of different Spyder models attending as well as traditional 3-wheelers. Plus, the rally is fun, TT has a planned ride every year and the scenery is beautiful!

    I have also also heard some of the Can-Am service horror stories but can not directly verify.

    Oh yes, would love to, but from central FL to Deadwood, now there's a real journey.

    I rode with two Spyders, two trikes, and a two wheel wing today, all's I can say is again, (after 145 miles) I have heard NO CRY's babies/only smiles from the Can Am folks...

    O' after reading your post again, just now, they both mentioned today that they did indeed go to the Maggie event themselves last season and had a blast... She drives (her husband is blind, and rides on the back...She's 70+ plus years old..... What a bubbling couple both of them make!!

    I agree with you on your comments, SpyderLovers mostly are dedicated Spyder riders. Seems no matter what, they hang in ride on, and fix whatever it is that breaks, or find an after market thing that works better than BRP builds. They love the ride, and compliment the ride. One thing, or really more than one, I do like on the Spyder is the suspension, and all those after market things that can personalize the machine, at no small cost, but sure makes it personal, and damn good looking, in my opinion. There's an interesting Vlog on You Tube, it's John and Mariam's Travel Vlog on a Spyder, I've seen all 100 plus, quite the Spyder RT Vlog. As mentioned, if I was convinced I could get decent service, I'd be out there looking and kicking tires.
