Maybe I missed it and I have no idea where such a thread would go but I want to get the opinion of the people about the new Can am Ryker. As soon as I saw the ads popping up for them I went to check out the specs and knew this was going to be my next "bike". Given the small-ish, Light-ish nature of the Ryker I feel like it is the perfect candidate for my next "dual sport/adventure" build. I have been dreaming up a dual sport build for the Can Am trikes for the better part of 3 or 4 years based on some version of the Spyder but there was always something about them that made me think "meh I will wait a little bit". I then got word of the Ryker, looked at the specs and now know that the Ryker will be my next less-than-four-wheeled ride if I can ever sell my adventure themed NC700X. Say what you will about the more-than-two-wheeled bikes on the market being lame and/or for old people but I honestly feel that's because they have always been equipped and marketed towards the "older rider". I mean just look at most of them. For total transparency, at 41 years of age, within 4 months of 42, I am no spring chicken. I can feel it in me bones and neck and back...and so on. However, I feel the Ryker is the hip, (can I use that word without seeming old) fresh (or that one) and new three wheeler that might entice the younger rider into a three wheeler. Make it small and light. Make it so I can hang the tail out if I am capable. Keep the suspension simple so I can add some beefy shocks and maybe longer control arms and swing arm to give me a little more travel and ride height like the ATV crowd. Give it a couple of engine options for both the frugal or more hard core among us. Couple this with the safe-ish nature of a three wheeled machine and you got my vote. Let's be honest. Motorcycle sales are dwindling. Maybe it's the "vidja games" and the social media makein'em soft but the youngins just don't have the dedication to deal with life on two wheels. They...I need something new. There was or are the leaning three wheelers that some companies have tried but they are just not taking off and even I think most of them are lame. Did I mention I am old-ish. Something new has to happen. Just to be clear I do not own a Ryker and will likely not buy one until my ADV van is finished and I sell my other bike but does anyone else see potential here?
