That looks pretty cool. I like the T-Rex site. If only I could put one in my garage :)

Interesting concept. But if you wanted a bike, you'd want two wheels. If you want open road feel.........ie convertible ........you'd want more storage ( ie a trunk ) Maybe I'm a skeptic......but the site didn't work well for me. Didn't give me much info:(

As Mag said, interesting concept, but dosn't appeal to me. If the site worked better or I got to see one in person I may change my mind.
I wonder what the pricing is? I am guessing around the $20K range.

I think I would rather pay in the mid 20's and get a Mazda Miata or Pontiac Solstic and have 4 wheels and a roof if needed. Or stick with 2 and get a Harley.........

The T-Rex site worked much better for me.

I agree.

This Can-Am Spyder looks like it's for the Sled guys who always wished they could ride on dry ground in the warmer months...or the Sled guys who moved far from snow.

Maybe next year they'll come out with a multi-season conversion kit with skis and a track or mud tire.

I like the spyder more than the T-rex ... and, my wife will never learn to ride a Harley, but she could ride/drive a spyder if she wanted to ... I think part of the appeal will be to people who are not capable of riding a 2 wheeler, and there will also be those who can ride a two wheeler but want another toy ... I wouldn't mind having one in my garage, but I'm pretty sure I'd rather have a new road king in the garage! (which reminds me, my boat payment is due)

Pendo- Agreed. (And you gave me a laugh with your ending comment:cool: )

Ryan- Or maybe because the snow doesn't come to us anymore, not because we moved away from it....I am not sure which I like better in a 3 wheel configuration, having the single wheel in the front or the back. Either way, I'd take one for a test drive...;)
