Spyders are great fun in the summer weather, but one of the benefits of the three wheels is that one could ride in more difficult conditions if so inclined. Here’s an article about a winter trip taken by a California couple from Cali to Austin, Texas and back. It includes some great and unusual stops in the Desert Southwest and West Texas, along with some good stories about the ride.
It also has some great tips and insight into riding a Spyder. Enjoy!
