    SAN DIEGO ó Last week, we took this wild-looking three-wheeler for a serious test drive. Itís officially known as the B.R.P. (Bombardier Recreational Products) Can-Am Spyder Grand Sport Roadster. Yes, that sure is a mouthful to say, but it was more than interesting to see what kind of a handful it was to ride:





    Three-wheelers arenít usually the most forgiving when it comes to sharp turns. Remember the old Honda ATC? The difference this time is that the two wheels are out in front instead of in the rear, and stability control is there to rein-in any naughty behavior. It might've bee a little odd to ride, but still a lot of fun at the same time. This three-wheeler was capable of sport bike-like speed, too, because power comes from a 106-hp Rotax V-twin paired to a choice of a traditional five-speed manual or a five-speed sequential gearbox. Prices will start around $15,000. óBen Stewart

    I have seen a couple of these ^ can-am in Thailand. Also a lot of custom made trikes.

    Remember it's Bang Sean Bike Week this weekend so that's why you will see a lot of motorcycle traffic on the roads. Maybe VIPs heading home.

    I think the bike week runs from Friday until Sunday. I was going to head down but it get's crazy busy there!

    I have seen two Can-am before, it was yellow followed by a black one. I saw them in the service station between Pattaya and Bkk. I can't imagine there are too many in Thailand!

    I know several people (who are heavily into motorcycles in the States) who have ridden both Can-Am models on extended test-rides (the company will invite almost anyone who owns a bike to try one out)- not a single one has had anything good to say about it, and no one considered buying one.

    I saw one advertised on Baht/Sold a while back for 1.85m (60K USD, or 4x the list price, which is nuts even for LOS)- no thanks.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    A great example about how some designers get it all wrong.
