Seen at Corner Book yesterday.
I had a chat with him in Mt Moriah the first day he got it. He also owns (or owned) a Spyder. Nice enough fella and seemed to enjoy the attention that it brings. Considering the price point I am surprised there are not any more around.
And if he is eating that Mc-shit it had better be quick to get out of when you gotta go.
Calling that a motorcycle is a stretch. Interesting though.
Plate starts with an M. Registered as one.
Just because the Government said so doesnt make it true.
Just my humble opinion.
You gotta sit in it and not on it. That is what settles it for me. That and the seat belts. And you can't fall off it.
All true. But not being able to fall off is not necessarily a bad thing. lol
Do you have to have a motorcycle license for these I wonder?
I heard someone say you don't have to have one for a Spyder.
Yeah, gotta agree with Keith and Hunterson here. Wonder if you need a class 6 to "ride" it. Cool looking though and looks like fun. I like it.
I saw one in person in Montreal earlier this year. Looks awesome, but I wouldn't buy one to replace a motorcycle (or car).
There's a red one in Paradise on Ellesmere Ave.
I know this is a controversial subject, but my simple test is that if it doesn't lean in the corners, it doesn't feel like a motorcycle to me.
A long time riding buddy of mine is starting to prep me for when he transitions into a three wheeler in a few more years. I told him that when the time comes that I can no longer handle a motorcycle, I will just stick with a convertible, and flip the top up when it rains...
We will see if my opinion of what constitutes a motorcycle changes as my balance deteriorates...
Bikes with Sidecars don't lean into corners?
Are they still bikes?
noun: motorcycle; plural noun: motorcycles
a two-wheeled vehicle that is powered by a motor and has no pedals
That's probably the one I saw on Torbay Road the other night.
Not in my book.
But then again, I am just a newly minted "cheese-head" from Wisconsin, and shouldn't be taken too seriously...
Its got a wheel instead of handlebars. Thats a car, lol
I can't stand the looks of those Slingshots ... if was going to go that route, might as well get a Convertible (my pal's Mini Cooper is really nice) ... a CanAm Spyder is more "motorcycle" than that thing ... but to each his own, if someone wants to spend their hard-earned on a Slingshot, then fill yer boots ...
Add one more wheel and about 200 hp and I might buy one.
Separate names with a comma.
