I have to drop a major spoiler alert to those who love to spend time outdoors in the warm weather: summer is already halfway over. I know, I know, it may not be a major spoiler, but it is a bummer, nonetheless. We are losing precious seconds of daylight with each passing day, and, especially for those in the north and midwest, the leaves will be changing colors and the temperatures will be dropping before we know it. But, alas, that time is not quite yet. We still have some summer and warm weather left to enjoy. With all of that being said, I have just one question for all of you:
What are you waiting for?
Despite what the retailers and winter vacation destinations may wish for you to believe, we still have nearly half of our summer left. That means that there is still time to get out there and hit the open road for your summer vacation. Enjoy the beaches or lakes or nature without having to bundle up in cold-weather clothes. Plan a trip. Pack your bags. Most importantly, let your journey be as exciting as your destination. To accomplish that, you simply have to ride a Can-Am Spyder to experience the ultimate escape and adventure!
- “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.”
The Can-Am Spyder is the ultimate road vehicle for absolutely any trip. Planning on heading over to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina? What better way to see it all than to ride a Spyder? Going to see a Train concert or San Francisco Giants baseball game? Hop on a Can-Am Spyder to see how San Francisco can save you. Thinking about heading to New York City, but you don’t think that you can see it all in a cab or on the subway? Just imagine all that you could see in the city that never sleeps while riding a Can-Am Spyder!
Do you love adventure? Do you love fun? Are you ready to let the journey be a major part of your vacation? If the answer is yes, yes and yes, then you are definitely ready to ride a Can-Am Spyder as you make memories on your summer vacation!
Still not convinced? Hey, that’s okay. After all, you don’t know me. You don’t have to take my word for it. But, what if some major celebrities and professional athletes gave their endorsement as well? Maybe you would listen to some people who definitely know more than a thing or two about fun, adventure, excitement and exhilaration!
NHL Hall of Fame center Mark Messier guarantees that you will love the ride. Messier certainly knows a thing or two about guarantees. Remember 1994? I bet that the New Jersey Devils certainly do. NASCAR superstar Danica Patrick personally told me that “Instead of just having fun once you arrive at your destination, the Can-AM Spyder makes the destination part of the fun.” As the most successful female driver in racing history, Patrick definitely know what it is like to take part in an exciting ride. WWE Hall-of-Famer Shawn Michaels has just two words for anyone who is not down with becoming a #SpyderRyder, but they are not the same two words that he made famous during his days running D-Generation X. Even NFL Super Bowl winning quarterback Drew Brees is trying to get in on the action, even if his current contract forbids it. You just have to think outside the box!
Recently, Project Road Warrior afforded eight Special Operations Forces veterans the opportunity to ride a Can-Am Spyder across the U.S.A, starting in Seattle and riding all the way to Tampa. The 3,000 mile trek was spread out over the course of 10 days. I am sure that they would tell you that it was the trip of a lifetime.
But don’t just take my word. Don’t just listen to people who know all about excitement and an exhilarating ride. Find out for yourself! Ride a Spyder today!

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
