A THRILLING RIDE WITH A HIGHER DOSE OF STYLE...

Unique "S" signature trim, machined wheels, premium fenders and suede seat take the muscular design to another level.

While you're enjoying the thrilling and confident ride of the Spyder F3-S, onlookers will be admiring its special machined deep black high gloss front wheels, suede seat and added fender lighting.

When it's time for an extended Spyder F3 cruise, the new F3-T is your bike. You get the added comfort of a tall windshield and big bore SACHS shocks. Then take along your stuff with a new glovebox and integrated hard side luggage.

I had to vote cool because in 25 years I'll be riding one when I can't hold up my 1100, but is it technically a motorcycle if it can't fall over?

Apologies to anyone who has one, but I seriously don't get the point of these. All the cons of a bike, and all the cons of a car. Since I can't lean on a curve and can't filter through traffic on a Can Am, for roughly the same price, might as well just get a Miata and still have tons of fun, plus crash protection and weather protection (when you feel like it).

Every few months a Can-Am comes up on the Cool Wall. I wonder what's the average score of all the Can-Ams that have appeared on the wall so far?

Hhhmmmmm... So you're saying I should just get a Miata when I can't get it up any more?

Dunno about you, but I will. :lol:

Seriously though, I do think about this since I think I've hit my peak of bike size and weight. When I feel the legs start to give way (hopefully later rather than sooner, but you never know), I'll be moving to a progression of smaller and smaller bikes, then a leaning three wheeler (like an MP3), then a hack, then a convertible.

Or I can just hope someone will invent something like a Star Wars speeder bike, so I won't even need to lift the durned thing.

LOL! My wife said it looks like a tractor! (she's from the country, don't you know) Maybe it's that Lamborghini thing happening.

I like them. Well...the touring model.

For people who can't ride 2-wheels....this is a great option. The rider still sits astride and it shifts and brakes the same as a 2-wheeled machine...you're still out in the open air....

I went with: Cool

I like the Can-Am series more this year than last year. Can-Am started dropping all those insanely weird color combinations and went to a more "sporty elegant" look, which is better IMO. The F3 is odd to me with it's strange sitting position (cruiser style) for a 3 wheeler. Back in 2007 when Can-Am started up, they were a strange beast and I would have bet they wouldn't have lasted more than a few years. Even today, I still don't see many on the roads but yet there are more and more models (and variants) each year. It's puzzling, but obviously, BRP/Can-Am knows what they are doing right? Or at least has so much money to throw at this line that to refuse for it to go away.

Cool, odd, but still puzzling.

But even then, Reliant Robins were popular at one time too...

2016 Can-Am Spyder F3T - Coolness Factor = 45.8%
Featured: September 25th, 2015 - October 2nd 2015
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=52135
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... er-F3T.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Can-Am Spyder F3T is:


Awesome (3 points) 17% [ 4 ]
Cool (2 points) 33% [ 8 ]
Uncool (1 point) 21% [ 5 ]
Fail (0 point) 29% [ 7 ]

Total votes: 24

= a Coolwall Factor of 45.8%

Notes: The Can-Am Spyder... is it a motorcycle or a car? Does it have all the benefits or the drawbacks of both? Our readers and riders are confused as well. This is the 5th Can-Am Spyder that's been on our Cool Wall in the past 4 years, their average rating was 45.2%, so the new F3T gets a 45.8%... maybe the traction of three wheels just isn't enough to pull it up the Cool Wall?

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!

Around here I wouldn't say they're common, but they're not exactly rare either. Probably every weekend there are a lot of bikes out I see at least one Spyder. I probably see more of them than sidecar rigs.
