Have a BMW K1200LT, but after dropping it getting it off the TH yesterday the Spyder is looking better and better. I just hope it meets the length confines of the TH garage.

I hear ya, dude. The first time I rode the FLHX into the TH, it was a little creepy/icky feeling. I'm short, and there's that little spot at the bottom of the ramp where my feet can't touch the ground. Both going in and coming out--when I get to that point, I just have to GO! If you haven't driven/ridden your bike into your TH for the first time, do yourself a favor and have a buddy there just in case. It's not as simple as it sounds!

Spiders can be tricky to get on TH also. We have to put two blacks under TH hitch jack it up all the way , then back it up the ramp being careful of tire width . We found is to measure ramp to make sure it is wide enough

What exactly are you looking to "see?" Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and the crew from SOA? H-D has aggressively marketed its new products, and they've won over a lot of riders, including doctors, lawyers, and other professional people. We might not look the part but we really don't care what you think we look like. The new Rushmore bikes are pretty awesome--sure, they've had some growing pains, but at least they're growing. They lured me away after I was riding a metric cruiser for 9 years, and I won't go back. If Suzuki made a heavy cruiser with all the features I wanted, I might still be on one, but they don't, so I'm not.

Try a test ride, dude.

Road Glide here. Just got back from a 2800 mile road trip. only 2 days of not riding out of 9. I also built a bobber a few years ago out of my old Yamaha and I use that for around town trips.

Hopefully, you'll never have to endure an illness or injury which precludes riding on two wheels. In 2011, I faced that situation, after 35 years of riding. I'm very grateful to be able to continue to ride, albeit on 3 wheels much of the time. Cheers!

I ride a 2006/2012 HD FLHIT/CSC Daytona conversion, and my 1987 HD FLST I've had since new. My wife rides a 2012 HD FLD.
