Smack dab in the middle of two alphabet-class weather events lay a narrow window of opportunity to ride the latest and greatest creations from the Canadian minds at Bombardier Recreational Products. Who closed the door on bluebird Texan skies? Ike did, or maybe you can blame Gustav for whittling our full day's excursion to a short-order dish. We weren't even off the hotel property before every stitch of my clothing was drenched in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the rain, it wasn't a wasted trip. It only took a mile in the rain to experience the technological wonder that BRP has created.

In August of this year, I brought you a longer ride report on the BRP Can-Am Spyder Roadster, a "flipped around" three-wheeler, putting the two wheeled part of the trike in the front of the unit. This revolutionary machine made some buyers consider a three-wheeler for the first time. In the coming year, you'll be able to get the road-hugging rider-friendly three-wheeler with either the original manual transmission (SM5) or an electronically controlled tranny (SE5). BRP calls the new machine "imPRESSive," for a play on its new thumb shifting. After experiencing it personally, I would have to agree.

Do you need a motorcycle license to drive the Can-am in california??

Today i had my bike parked in a parking lot and a police officer came to me and asked for my registration and license plate (since its new i didn't have it) and then he asked to see my motorcycle license and i dont have one and he said i need one to operate it since its under 800lbs and has three wheels and he threatened to impound it but then hes like have someone pick it up so idid. but everyone is telling me i dont need a motorcycle license. Do i need one? He gave me two tickets one for not having a having registration and one for not a having a license plate....
later that day I was driving it a little aggressively and the check engine light came up i think it over heated so i waited 45mins and it turned off but then after 15mins of driving very slow and easy it went back on. do u think if i wait like 4 hours it would be fine?

The Spyder has become old hat for Motorcycle.com, as this is our third report on the three-wheeler.The newest addition to BRP’s impressive collection of technology is the sequential electronic transmission, which is both impressive and technologically advanced.
