Can-am spyder on ebay

I really am interested in buying this. It has something to do with the extras included.
My wife will not go for it.
Can-Am

Can you blame her? Argyle socks would provide very little abrasion resistance in a spill. On the plus side, it has airbags.

...seriously tho, I never understood these trikes, they're like motorcycles for people with middle ear infections. I mean, why would you deliberately get a motorbike that's heavier, has greater drag due to increased frontal area, wears out 50% more rubber, yet has absolutely no safety or other benefits over a regular 2-wheeled motorbike? ...apart from not falling over when you're blind drunk and decide to ride your motorbike, in which case your days are numbered (likely in single digits) anyhow, what's the point?

If you're looking for a 3 wheeler with 'accessories', check into one of these. Much more fun to ride.

Oh, and for cyclaholic...unlike the can-am, this bike WILL fall over when you're blind drunk, etc. It rides just like a 2 wheeler with the exception being that you have more rubber in front in case of slippery surfaces or emergency braking.

A model that nice is a big red flag. What are they trying to get you to overlook by distracting you with her?

There is a Can-Am dealership in this area, and I see a fair number of older riders on them. I can see that if the choice was between a trike and not riding at all, the trike may look like a good option, especially if you have mobility or balance issues.
