Can-Am Spyder Test Ride Event coverage

HA! I was right, it was a new model!

The Can-Am event on Friday at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach gave myself and a few other journalists a chance to test drive their new 2014 RT model. And given that this was my first time driving a vehicle like this, needless to say I looked like a total dork.

Unlike Danica Patrick, who looks pretty when riding just about anything.

This thing was really fun to ride and has a ton of features on it that not only make it an appealing vehicle to buy, but it has some of the most idiot-proofing devices I’ve ever seen. For example, it has an onboard computer that helps you keep it perfectly balanced when making fast turns, and an “EcoMode” that tells you when to shift so you can get the most bang for your buck when it comes to fuel.

Honestly if you’re looking for a new kind of machine to ride around, that not only feels comfortable but looks pretty damn cool, check one out! (http://can-am.brp.com/spyder/)
