Sorry to hear about the surgery! I've had one back op... thats was bad enough, very happy to still be walking, let alone riding! Actually, having a back problem was why I took up riding (rather than driving) in the first place many years ago.
Hope you recover well from it!
Took a Spyder for a fang at the Sydney Bike Show a couple of years ago, around what would have become most of the "V8 track" at Homebush later on. Pissing down rain, and no wet weather gear on... it was a ball in a straight line, spinning up the rear wheels... but cornering, damn near threw me off every time I tried to turn a corner.
I handed the keys back afterward and said "no thanks, not for me".
That given, it was very comfortable to ride, I had the "auto" version and that worked well, and I guess in more polite circumstances (even the lead rider from Spyder was being a hoon) once you get used to the cornering it could be an interesting touring vehicle.
I think I'd be investigating triking the LT as a first choice, too!
