I have to admit I'm impressed with the inroads CanAm has made with these unique vehicles in a relatively short period of time. I see a lot these on the road here in Washington.

Here is a thread that I will be watching! I love the Spyder, but just cannot justify a roadster right now. People seem to think of it as a car or a trike and it is neither nor have they ever pretended to be either one. If I had the extra space and the time to ride it, there would be one in the garage right now!

Do dealers allow test rides/drives on these things?

I'd like to give one a whirl just for shitsandgiggles.

Could you pull a dirt-bike on that trailer?

I test rode the touring model on a whim (and a dare), I gotta say, it turned out better then I expected. Get into some turns and they are like a snowmobile almost.

My (limited) experience with snowmobiles says that this is not a good attribute.

Not with my trailer, but with a small motorcycle trailer you could.
