    Welcome to iRyde.net.

    If this is your first time visiting this site, allow me to give you a quick rundown about what this place is all about. So, here goes:

    This site started as TheVOG.net and the initial focus was centered around Victory Motorcycles. As an expansion, we created www.iRyde.net as a new site with the focus on Can-Am's lineup of Spyder three-wheeled Trikes...or, more appropriately, Trykes!

    For The VOG Members who are reading this post, don't worry, nothing is changing. The VOG is still here and other than some upgrades, no changes are planned for The VOG. We're simply expanding this site and hope to increase the size of our riding community. Here's a video on this topic:



    Now, back to the new folks who may be visiting us for the first time: This site is a Social Network and not your typical website. Our motto has always been, "It Doesn't Matter What You Ride, As Long As You Make Friends Along The Way." Our goal has been to make this a site where All Riders Are Welcomed no matter which brand of bike you currently ride or what you may choose to ride in the future.

    The way this site is structured, while there's a dedicated Can-Am Spyder Forum and it includes both a General Discussion and a Tech Q & A area, the most recent posts to the Forums will appear on the Front Page of this site. To get there just click the white Home link or the logo (on the upper left corner of every page) to jump to the home page.

    Also note that this site is very Photo and Video friendly. If you're new to Social Networks, don't worry as there's a number of videos that demonstrate how to use various features. Just click the white Videos link and then click the Using The VOG image.

    Allow me to add that this is a Free Site. While anyone can view anything on this site, to participate in the Forums, upload photos or videos or to become an Active Member, you will need to register by clicking the Sign Up link above the logo on the top of the page. Registration is easy and we don't ask too many questions. Like any site, we recommend that you take a moment and read the Terms and Conditions (the link is on the bottom of each page), but the basic rules are simple: Have Fun and Respect Others.

    As a Registered Member, you'll have the ability to communicate with other Members through this site. And since I'm the Moderator here, anytime you have a question about the site, you can contact me as I'll be automatically placed in your friends list.

    Yes, iRyde.net is a new entry to this site and the Forums are just getting started. So feel free to start a new Spyder topic on site or add to the current discussions.

    Have Fun and Ride Safely,

    Andy

    I kinda feel like the guy in the AT&T HD TV commercials replying to his Asian buddy..... "Yeah, but I don't have that"....... :)
    Guess I need to break down and at least go ride one???

    Social network for people who like to ride.
    This last trip we took we had Victory's, A triumph, and a Yamaha. they all went down the road the same. We had a great time. And nobody looked down their nose at anyone else for what they were riding.
    Expand away Andy.
    I look forward to seeing new people once they hear about the site.

    That's correct! It's a site within a site. You'll see when you go to the Forums, there's a new category for Spyder threads.

    but until you finally pull the trigger on your Spyder, aren't you just a wannabe Andy?

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    my bad then, last blurb I saw was about the unusual dealer fine print and I hadn't seen anything since.

    no I don't read the blog too often, I have more fun with the forums.

    Off topic though, what about apple's new 'magic mouse' since you used to be tech guy?

    It's a wireless, Bluetooth, buttonless mouse. Kind of like having a wireless touchpad.



    The one thing I don't like about any wireless mouse is the need to either change batteries or to recharge. It is cool though.

    I'm glad you said "horse's mouth" and not the horse's other side!
