    I just saw a touring model (RT?) yesterday in my town. A woman was driving with a guy riding on the back.

    Goes without saying he was severely injured or had a 'man cold' and couldn't safely operate the vehicle. Yep, that'll be it for sure ...

    My wife attended the local Spyder demo day the weekend before last (I was out of town). The end result is that she traded in her Yamaha 950 V-Star and picked up her new base-model RT this afternoon. I don't think that I'll ever give up bikes for one, but it's a very cool machine, and if it will get us out riding more, great.

    And, yes, after we got back home after a long ride this evening, I DID hop on the back -- long enough to run through the Taco Bell drive through at the end of the block. I feel no need to turn in my man card...nothing wrong with being a supportive husband.

    She test rode both the manual and semi-auto, and she liked the standard trans a whole lot more. She felt that the sequential was a lot less fun.

    Glad your mate has something that she really likes to ride...:clap
    And will use it as a primary vehicle...

    Good deal... I hate to say that my mate had to ride on the back of my trike a few times due to his bike having a bad flat tire that couldn't be fixed on the road side... With Stop and Go plugs...

    So.. Hey I was just teasing .... I really don't have a problem with a guy riding Nice Person aka Bitch....:lol3 On any of my Valks...

    Not a Motorcycle in NV, and only requires a basic DL, no motorcycle ndorsement needed. Also exempts you from the helmet law.

    My 2013 RS-S and my wife's 2012 RT. Both are manuals.

    We have a '13 ST-S SE5 for my wife and she loves it. Just curious, how is the manual transmission & clutch? I felt one in a showroom and the clutch felt very heavy and Harleyesque.

    Not the lightest clutch I've ever used, but nothing to complain about.

    How are you coping with the nanny? I was considering getting an RS-S for myself but I find the nanny to be truly intrusive, you can't get even the least bit squirrely. I installed a "BajaRon" front sway bar, nice improvement.

    I just say "Thank you, Nanny!" and live to ride another day.
