Brother in law has had one for several years and loves it. Very fun to ride, takes a little getting used to.

The first one I saw was about three years ago. I followed behind two bright yellow Spyders going up a twisty mountain highway in California. I could tell one rider had more experience, he seemed to take the curves OK, the other rider, not so well, It scared me to watch. I kept thinking that single wheel rear was going to come around. Strange but good looking machine.

I'll take my Spyder over a bike any day! Traction control, stability control, anti locking brakes, and the ride is wonderful... They are expensive, but fun to ride. More like riding a 4-wheel and snowmobile combination than a bike. Difficult to get use to at first, but once you get use to it you'll love it.

I see those and wonder why a person just doesn't buy a small convertible of some sort. When the weather turns bad just out the top up instead of stopping to put on rain gear. You still get the feeling of open air etc.

Might as well because sure don't handle anything like a bike. I test rode one and really felt uncomfortable. I didn't care for the ergonomics or the drive train at all.

To each his own though.

I'm in Gatlinburg today, after a long day's drive yesterday thru the hardest mountain roads in the Smokies.

There are Can Am Spyder's all over these mountains. I cannot tell you how many we've seen.

Bamama, alot of locals from North Alabama, where we are, drive their bikes up to Gatlinburg. We prefer short rides, under a couple of hours, when having to deal with urban driving.

I have a 2010 RTS SM5. That's a 5 speed that shifts with your foot. The SE5 is a semi auto. I also have a 2011 Harley Softail. The Spyder fits in the Toyhauler or a trailer behind the MH. We love the Spyder and it gets more miles than the Harley. I feel more confident and relaxed riding double on the Spyder. Don't be put off by your first test drive. It takes a couple of rides to get used to it.
