Looks like good roads between Palm Springs and San Diego, I might settle on meeting midway and shooting off on a tangent road instead-that looks more fun.

Thanks to Marc for setting up the regional forums. California South should have a good number of ryders. I'll spread the word.

Thanks for spreading the word...much appreciated. California is our 2nd biggest state for traffic on Can-AmTalk, so hopefully we'll have a lot of posts in here going forward.

Ken, how is your Spyder handling? I am pressing my sales rep hard for one of the Spyders on the floor. Hope to get it soon.

great I did 218 miles this weekend and never hit a highway or exceeded 50 mph

no issues so far actually pretty darn happy. take any color that you can get, remember that the color is just

plastic panels that can be changed later the rest of the bike is the same.

any word yet?

I bought #355. She is very sweet and handles well on the road. The right mirror plastic holding cap at the base popped off. Not a serious degredation in performance. Ready to ride? Pick a day-Fri.Sat.Sun. I'm up for dual roadster riding. Do you have a chatterbox or voice comm? I still have to install mine on the helmet.

Where abouts do you live?

Sat. morning

We could leave from el cajon and go to 101 to carlsbad and return, is about 100 miles and never hit the highway. I know you will need to breakin the motor.

By tonight I will be at 520 miles of the 625 needed. Not bad considering I started las sat morning.

Welcome goFast. I would recommend House of Motorcycles in El Cajon to see the floor units. The dealership didn't mention any demos, but you'll be able to see them. Ask for Pete or Lee and tell them you saw our forum. I know the manager grumbles about us, but he did sell me a unit after the smoke cleared.

Ken, I will call the dealership and if they can check my brakelines Friday and return my unit same day, if you haven't had any brake problems, I'll meet ya in El Cajon Saturday morning. This will be a cool run. Email me with a time and meeting point and what to bring.

Trigger,

I did go by the dealer this morning and they had 2 but both had deposits on them. Kool looking machine for sure but not going to pay 20K OTD. Will wait awhile and I bet the prices will come down and also if there is any bugs, hopfully they will have them worked out.

I sure want to ride one but they could not do. Maybe I will see you around El Cajon so I can see yours.

Thanks again!
