Can-Am Spyder first ride

If the three-wheeled Cam-Am Spyder were a person you met, the first thing it would say is: "I'm not a motorcycle, you know." The second thing would be: "Are you aware that I'm not a motorcycle?" At the launch of the latest version in Marbella, Spain, last week, journalists were made to sign a declaration before going anywhere near it, which...

I suppose I would consider it if I was disabled, but like it says at the start, its not a bike and will get stuck in traffic when all the bikers are filtering through. And at 19k-21k, its never going to be more than a niche vehicle aiming at a very small market, and I can't think who that market will be, other than someone who wants something different and has lots of money to spare.

Its made in America for Americans

Americans love this kind of thing, it just isn't a bike. I dont think it looks that easy for someone that's disabled to ride either. Not a patch on them old blue disabled cars you used to see on the roads.

It's not a bike: So why does it have a saddle when a supportive seat for the sideways forces that motorcycles so magically dial out, would be better? It's not a bike, so why does it have handlebars. No confusing counter-steering then, is there? It's not a bike, so why doesn't it have a roof, and proper aerodynamic leg protection, especially for the passenger? It's a bike, not, so why does it have a Rotax v-twin instead of a torquey, grunty, massively economical small four with turbo from a car? Preferably a diesel... It's not a bike, so where are the seat belts and airbags? What we have 'ere is a camel - a horse, designed by a committee. It reminds me of an ice cream bicycle - can you get it with sprinkles? Just buy a Morgan three-wheeler. Better in every possible way.

Think outside the box

I am waiting for everyone In This country to embrace things that are different, not take the piss out of it. All us real mileage bikers that ride on the continent will see stuff like this, and sidecar outfits with engineering so complex it's mind boggling. It's a regular occurrence, and its appreciated for what it is. I'm fed up of people thinking Wallace and grommit when they see a sidecar outfit, don't knock one till you have rode one! It might open your eyes to something completely different. :-) oh I ride a solo by the way, under the age of 25 and ride an fjr 1300 lol. The future for biking is bright, but only if you make it folks. :-)
