Last fall I traded my 05 Wing in on a 2010 Can Am Spyder, just traded it in on a new 09 Wing, pick it up Fri. The Spyder just wasn't my thing, not to mention a lousy seat and poor shocks! Glad to be returning to the Wing!:lol: Will have to post a new pic. that's my 05!

I have done it twice. In 2004 I traded my 01 wing for a Ultra Classic I spent about $6k more trying to get the performance up to the wings standards and after 18 months I traded the harley for an 06 wing. I 2010 my knees went south on me so I decided to go with a trike. I traded teh 06 for a stallion. It was the worst trade I have ever made. I hated it. I would have been better off buying a convertible. After a few months I had almost quit riding (driving if it is a stallion) altogether. My wife said either sell it or trade for something that will be used. Two weeks ago I got an '10 motor trike conversion. LIFE IS GOOD.:thumbup:

Not too bad of a hit to the pocket book, obviously got a good deal on the 09 and the Spyder being only a year old hadn't depreciated too bad. It could have been worse! Not enough changes to the 2012 Wing to make it worth the extra $.

Congrats on the new Wing. I came real close to getting a Spyder after my Wing was totaled. Test rode the RT twice. If the dealer had been a little faster in making up her mind how much she was going to charge me I would probably be riding one now. Saw the Cross Country and the rest is history. But I still think the Wing is one fine machine !! Good luck and Happy Riding !!!

welcome back the wing ownership. I strayed away for a year to another brand but once we towed our trailer on a trip it was back the the wing.
I don't think anybody can disagree that the wing is a fine touring machine. Others use the term "touring" but it's only a term.
