The Can-am Spyder, produced by Bombardier Recreational Products, is the newest technology in safety and motorcycling - it's a trike, but backwards.
"A standard trike has two wheels on the back, but we have two on the front, which makes it a lot more stable and safer," said Wade McDonald, district sales manager for BRP. "Before, when you turned a corner and you hit the brake, the machine would fall forward. With this system, you can't because you've got two wheels across the face, so they're a lot safer, even on a hard brake."

While mainstream production of the Spyder won't hit dealerships until the spring, there's pretty much a sold-out situation already. At the moment there aren't any manufacturers in Manitoba or Saskatchewan, but production is slowly increasing. Saskatchewan will most likely have a dealer in about 15 months.
