I am on both sites. I am trying to figure out why there are 1,000's more on SpyderLovers.com ? Is there a reason why there aren't as many on this site ? Just curious.

Different flavors is all. We have 7230 members on SpyderTalk, I didn't know SpyderLovers had thousands more. Lamont's a good guy and does a lot of the Spyder community, people like to follow him.

Marc,
You sure have got that right about Lamonster. Did that site originate before or after Spydertalk ? I like to use this site also to see other peoples opinions. I enjoy this site very much also. I had a 2009 Burgman 650 that I sold a couple of days ago because I decided to have just the one toy instead of two. The Burgman was fantastic, but I started using the Spyder more, since it was more comfortable in the seating, plus all the goodies. LOL. The only question I had was what are the opinions of the folks here about using the BRP factory tire pressures that they recommend ? 15/28 . I tried them a few days ago and they seem to be comfortable riding. I take my time so I don't need special pressures for speed handling. Originally I used 20/28, which the service department recommended on my 600 mile service. I just want a comfortable and stable ride with good even wear on the tires. Any opinions ?'

Marc,
I have to apologize for saying 1,000's more. I think I based that on looking at how many pages there were for posts. I just realized that there was 13 pages of quotes here, not 3 or 4 . My fault for not reading between the lines. LOL. Actually I have no idea of how many members they have. I will have to look that up today. Keep up the good work Marc.

SpyderTalk was the first Spyder website. We started off as an offshoot of Can-AmTalk, but the Spyder discussion was taking over the site so we split SpyderTalk off. Lamont was one of our original members actually and he used to post here a lot.

Glad you enjoy SpyderTalk, we have over 100,000 threads of Spyder content to read through...if you have a few weeks :)

I run my tires a little higher than recommended pressure because I think it handles better. The 20/28 recommendation you got is about where I run. It's a compromise on ride comfort, but I haven't noticed premature wear and the handling is improved IMO.

Marc,
I just heard back from Lamonster. He gave me the following numbers.
Threads: 22,978
Posts: 307,129
Members: 6,771
Now I can see that both sites have a similar amount of members. You're doing a good job. I just went by the number of pages for quotes, not the actual number of members. Now I can see that chocolate and vanilla are very similar. LOL.

Sorry to disagree my Burgman is much more comfortable that my spyder, I enjoy my spyder but will not give my Burgman 650.
