Greetings,
I like it. Its a great way to have my wife ride her own bike, as I'm fearful she'd get hurt on just 2 wheels, and I could use it in the winter when the roads are icy and even I'd get hurt on 2 wheels...

Eek Bombardier website has gone "Spyder"...

Despite having 3 different names scattered all over the press...it appears to be officially launched.

x-bow is a car: one of the new generation micro cars that are coming out. Yamaha also have one, as do Suzuki. ( pretty much all 2 seater roadsters, sub 1000lb kerb weight, and all of them look fun...quite different to 3 wheelers though)

Sure looks like a snowmobile with wheels instead of skis from this angle.

I see satin jackets onboard soon, and lots of Gold Wing trade-ins...


They should have let me test it.
I seem to have no problem at all picking up fat chicks.

Cheeper than a new GS. It looks fun, but I can't shake the thought that it's just a motorcycle for people scared to lean. How do you stay on the seat when you start generating serious corner g's?

It's as wide as a car and steers like a car. I'll take this instead thanks.
