My son and I bought two Spyders. I prefer the manual shift, he the semi auto. Both bikes perform the same over-all. He had no motorcycle background and actually adapted to the steering faster than I did. My first hour on this bike I thought it was a mistake. It doesn't handle like a motorcycle. I rode it from LA, California to San Francisco the first day. I'm 64 years old and found the ride quite satisfactory. It's a great town and country rider. However, you can't ride it thru the twisties like a motorcycle, but it handles the speed limits fine. The more saddle time you get, the better you can handle the bike. At a thousand miles I like the bike. It will take a few thousand miles to love it.

After 17 years on two wheels and eight motorcycles, I bought a Spyder RS-S for my wife. So far - it's good - comfortable, fast and I think beautiful. The good: comfort for the pilot, good cargo capacity, good traction, fast in a straight line, doesn't fall over, easier to see then a bike, well made with tight controls, good paint and attention to detail. The bad: passenger foot pegs are cramped, takes a lot of effort to ride fast - got to hang on in the turns! If you ride two wheels - it takes some time to re-learn steering and brakes. Overall - a good alternative to a cruiser, fun, fast, easy to ride and enjoy the sights. Just don't try to hang with the local sportbike club in the mountains. It's a good touring platform. Oh - and the wife LOVES it.
