    Default CanAm Spider

    Has anyone driven the CanAm Spider? Have seen more and more of them on the road. Friend of mine has CanAm four wheeler and wanted me to get the Spider. Glad I stuck to my 1st choice but would like to try one out.

    Google to find your closest dealer and take your helment and sunglases. We took a 25 miles test ride and it cost us about as much time as going bowling or out to eat and was a whole lot more fun.

    Check the "Other Trikes" forum on this site. CanAm Spyder info there. Might want to look at the thread "Bucket List". Remember it's just opinions, you have to make the decision.

    Wife and I rode the Spyder and the Tourer before we bought the Harley Tri-Glides. FUN to ride! Had a great time on the twisty roads in the canyons around here. Just didn't like the sitting position on either bike, more like a sport bike than a touring machine. If we were a bunch younger, maybe.... BUT don't let the opinion of a couple old fogies sway you one way or the other. Find a dealer that does test rides and plop your butt down and try it.

    Why 3 wheels?

    because 2 isn't enough and 4 is too many

    Vesta (wife) is an absolute terror on her Trike. It was hard enough to follow her through the canyons when she was on 2 wheels. I finally broke down and bought a bike to bike intercom so I could tell her it was time to stop for a but rest.

    I actually bought a red one and had it for about 4 months. Even with the 4" risers on it I could not get out of a lean forward feel. Back problems and surgery don't allow me to stay in that position for any length of time before pain starts.

    Other than that it rode real well and I enjoyed the bike.
