Hello everyone,

I am a university student and am doing a project on the can-am spyder. I just have a quick question for spyder owners. It would be great if you could give me some responses, anything will help.

Essentially, I would like to know what caused you to buy it. Anything about what got you interested, what appealed to you. And also if you are comfortable with it, I'd love to know what age bracket your in (middle aged, baby boomer etc), if you have a family - just anything you'd like to share.

Thanks so much!

spyder chice

I chose Spyder because it is stable, better than rear trikes, motor appeared potent enough, it is comfortable and I really enjoy riding it,I am a bay boomer, ride with my soulmate and planning to get a little trailer for long rides
maybe shiping it to South America for local travel there, it feels like a little sports car
the maintenance is a bit involved, and pricyparts ans add ons very high priced

I bought mine because I don't really like two wheels AND the Spyder drives and feels and looks a lot like a snowmobile. Comfortable? No question there.

Maintenance is really just as involved as any car. But with only three wheels it's a little more critical to make sure everything is operating properly. Taking good care of an asset like that is just smart.

Safe alternative

I got mine after breaking a bunch of bones and destroying by motorcycle. :( While kids are still very little I needed a safer alternative. :cool:

I was in a serious motorcycle accident last year (got run over by a semi). I missed the ride and wanted to try to keep that part of my life alive so the Spyder seemed like a good solution. More stable that two wheels but at the end of the day, I've got a throttle in my hand, the wind in my face, and 1000 cc's between my legs... it's all good. :D
