Introducing the spanking brand new 2017 Can-Am Spyder F3-S Daytona 500 from Can-Am!

It is a bike? Is it a car? Can you believe they are still around or think it's awesome they are?

Shoot it, shoot it now and bury it in some shallow grave in a deep and dark forest..............


WTF Mike, releasing this unholy abomination upon us on Canada Day? Why not just get Justin f'ing Bieber to sing "Oh Canada" on top the damned thing, and really bring shame to Canada........
Always ask why.

Fail, not a motorcycle.

Though when I am 80 and can't hold up a bike anymore I will be riding one. But it still won't be a motorcycle.

Where do you park one of these things?

If this poll was done back when the first Spyders came out, I would have voted "Fail". I could not for the life of me find an appropriate reason as to why Bombardier would sink so much money into something that wasn't a proper motorcycle. It's like they came up with an answer to a question that was never asked, nobody in their right mind would own one of these monstrosities when there were perfectly good sidecars and traditional trikes out there that did a much better job of retaining a two wheeled perspective. I figured Can-Am would go bankrupt and these...things... would disappear into the bowels of history.

Then I started noticing more and more of them on the road. The people driving them all seemed to be happy and appeared to be from the Old Geezer age bracket like me. Then the CSC started offering specific driver training courses for them. I saw even more out on the road. Then I started seeing them motoring along within packs of riding clubs like the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers and the Southern Cruisers. Instead of just Old Geezers driving them there were representatives from both genders and all age groups and everyone looked like they were having a blast. Then a good friend bought one a couple years ago and I finally got to take a long, close look at one. I was impressed. These things have a lot of technology packed into them and while I don't agree with the fully automatic transmission with one single foot brake pedal option, I had to admit it was a neat and relatively inexpensive (compared to full dress touring bikes) way for someone to enjoy riding just as much as a two wheeler.

But are they motorcycles or three wheeled snowmobiles? That debate will never be won, it seems, as I've noticed there's a lot of hate towards them especially in online forums. The general consensus among the haters seems to be these things are built for people who lack the skills and co-ordination to ride two wheelers and/or only women and old men are buying them. Well, this FS-3 Daytona 500 kind of squashes those arguments. This ain't your Grandma's mobility scooter. This thing could eat up your favourite twisty road just as fast as any sport touring bike.

All that said, they still are not my cup of tea and likely never will be, but I definitely appreciate them for what they are - a non traditional action packed way to thoroughly enjoy the open road just as much as we two wheelers do. I voted "cool". And, yes, I wave to every one of them I see.

The dealership I work at has a sister dealership that carries these things, so on their last demo days, I took one of these things out for about 2.5 hours. It must have been a 2016 F3S. I can tell you all from first hand experience that they're exactly as terrible as you think. "Junk" is too kind a term.

As fast as an actual GT bike? That's simply outside the realm of reality.

There's no excuse for owning one of these things unless you're missing 2 or more limbs or you're just an idiot.

No vote, not a motorcycle. Interesting machines in their own right, but not motorcycles in my book.

Would I buy one? Who knows, in 10 or 15 years if balance and leg strength become problems for me, a Spyder might be the best motorcycle surrogate. Or maybe a regular bike with a hack. Who knows, I'm 60 now, I might be ready to give up open air vehicles by then.
