I have a 2011 Spyder RT, and don't have too much trouble with it. The only thing is body roll; it has too much when riding two up.

Noticed the same on my 2011 RT SE5. The front shocks came from the factory adjusted to the second notch. It is recommended in the maintenance booklet to adjust the front shocks to the 3rd position when riding two up. Front suspension deflection in turns is greatly reduced when the front shocks are adjusted to the stiffest position. With a little practice, any Can Am Spyder driver can really dive into the turns. Just don't scare your passenger too much.
