Doug , I think that Can Am is in your future. I've ridden a trike several times and to me they handle terribly in the corners. You trike riders I'm not cutting down your ride. I think they are beautiful machines but I ride hard in the corners and trikes aren't too good at that. Now , Doug that Can Am will flat get it in the twisties. I ran one down on old 61 hwy two years ago. He was trying to shake me. I was on my M109R at the time. Guy pulled over and we talked. Then we swapped rides for about ten miles. I was impressed with the Spyder. You sit high , that's the only drawback. Im sure you get used to it.
I test rode the first Can Am Spyder brought into the United States as a VIP guest.
Those were nowhere in the same ball park as the new ones.
They had to be ridden like a 4 wheeler or a snowmobile in the corners.
I loved that actually.
What I did not like was that like a 4 wheeler, if you did not lean into the corner dang near off the side you felt like you would be ejected.
My understanding is that alot of this has been somehow taken care of.
I will find out when I talk to the rep.
I have a bit of an advantage I believe than someone just jumping on one from a motorcycle.
I professionally ice raced quads (indoor arenas) and did some 1/4 mile flat track races until one of those flat track races almost took my life in 2011.
That experience will assuredly make riding one almost second nature if I would decide to get one.
At least I would think it would. Here is a still shot of me from MAVTV. #56 (had to throw that in here) haha
