I have a new 2018 CanAm Spyder with problems

Just received my new Spyder and I live in Northern Virginia. Its starting to get chilly here so I want to get some trike time before winter hits. I just retired from professional life and I am also a a retired Army officer.

Major problem is I cant get it to start. Just dies right away. I also cannot set the parking brake.
Hopefully I will be on the road soon.

Both of those symptoms could be caused by a loose battery cable of a very low battery charge.

BUT.....you have a warranty, including towing to the shop if necessary.

I suggest that you USE it.

Why oh why do so many people post a thread with a problem they are having but almost NEVER post what happened in the end? I will never understand this if I live to be 100 years old.
