Drew Brees is a Super Bowl winning quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. He holds numerous NFL records and is still in the prime of his career. Being a superstar in the world’s most popular league has plenty of perks. Unfortunately, Brees just found one downside to being locked into one of the most lucrative contracts in the entire league. A clause forbids Brees from riding a motorcycle. Thankfully, he told his agent that he found a loophole so that he could finally experience the adventure and exhilaration of riding an all-new Can-Am Spyder.
Brees is going to retire.
- “I am currently a member of the Can-Am Spyder Preferred Blogger Program and this post is part of my involvement. While Can-Am Spyder provides me material and necessary resources to complete various activities, all statements and sentiment in Boston Super Blog are my own.”
Not really, but the newest commercial from BRP and the 2014 Can-Am Spyder features Brees discussing his desire to ride the new Can-Am Spyder, He calls his agent to tell him that he found a loophole in his contract. He is retiring.
After being shown riding a Spyder (which, don’t worry Saints’ fans – I was assured that it was a stunt double), Brees phones his agent once again to inform him that he is back.

“We knew the restrictions from the beginning, as did Can-Am,” Brees told ESPN.com. “Ultimately because I can’t ride it now doesn’t mean I won’t someday. The first chance I have to ride it on a closed course, you can bet I’ll take advantage.”

Can-Am Spyder: Riding Reinvented
In 1997, the BRP design team was given the following challenge: create a motorcycle with 3 wheels or less that is capable of appealing to the 95 percent of the population who don’t ride today. The concept of Spyder and its unique Y-frame design was born and officially launched in 2007. Combining the Y-frame design with state of the art 7 automobile technologies and Rotax engine, Can-Am Spyder gives the rider a greater sense of control and confidence to enjoy to the fullest the incredible exhilaration of open air, open road riding.
Can-Am Spyder is a relatively new vehicle and BRP is taking an innovative approach in marketing communication, using celebrity influencers and branded entertainment to be present where the consumers are consuming media and content.
With Can-am Spyder, BRP believes that everyone should experience the exhilaration of riding in the open air on the open road.
The Can-Am Spyder has a clear point of difference vs. motorcycles in that it offers the exhilaration of open air riding with confidence and control that comes from its unique Y frame design, three-wheeled platform and 7 automotive technologies. This makes it appealing to motorcycle riders, but importantly, Can-Am Spyder is uniquely placed to attract new entrants into open air riding, those consumers who have aspired to the motorcycle lifestyle but would not purchase a two wheel motorcycle.
Whether you’re headed across town or across the country, no matter what your riding style is, from sport to touring to somewhere in between, there’s a Can-Am Spyder for every rider.
Can-Am Spyder is the only vehicle with a Y-frame design and seven automotive technologies. Those technologies are:
o Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
o Traction control
o Stability control
o Semi-automatic transmission (optional)
o Power steering
o Cruise control
