Welcome back, TopDog. I am just in the process of getting used to riding a Spyder, and enjoying it. We could talk.

Welcome back. Happy that you are with us again. Situations may have me looking at a trike. Actually thinking of converting my Road Star XV1600. I hear they make great conversions.

The things I learned were how to lose thousands of dollars when selling. Also, don’t mix premium gas with mid grade gas and psi in the tires has to be spot on for handling. I’m happy for you, when my 2011 was running right it was a blast. Not so much on a flatbed. Lol

What happens when you mix the fuel types? Is that where the flatbed came into the picture?

No it put the Spyder into “Limp” mode where the dealer informed me not to do that any more. He told me to try to always use the same premium gas whenever possible.
