Can-Am Spyder RT Limited - Three to tango
A Mercedes-Benz SL with one wheel less or a Honda Gold Wing with one too many?

So, you’ve promised yourself a motorcycle trip – a fast dash to the beach. There is something magical about arriving at a beach-town, no? The calming sea-breeze which carries with it the waft of a mild fish curry burbling in many a household, the surprisingly clean mongrels that give you an aimless chase as you ride past... it’s just not possible to experience this from within a metal shell, unless, of course, if it’s the sort that lets you stow the roof away into the boot.

I am always game for a relaxed weekend at the beach. However, the increasingly good motorcycle luggage options available in the market are rejected by my want to travel light. Full-size tourers are great, but I can’t afford one, and if you don’t want to go through the effort of handling a heavyweight, apart from living in the fear of dropping one on your foot, you’re Bombardier Recreational Vehicles’ target audience. While you’re on the shore, feet up on a chair, a meditative gaze on the many silhouettes that appear before you as you fork out a crisp golden fried prawn downed by a mug of the chilled stuff, your mind needn’t wander on the discomfort of having left something essential behind, right?

That explains why something as outrageous looking as the Can-Am Spyder RT Limited exists. It’s a very agreeable holiday vehicle for born-again bikers, for people who don’t want to be chauffeured and even for, with some objection, motorcycle purists. If you, like me, belong to the last breed, you’ll perhaps enjoy the Spyder RT L (let’s call it that, shall we?) the most. Let me make it very clear – the RT L leans more towards ‘motorcycle’ than ‘car’ and familiarity with the former will go a long way in you staying sunny-side up on this machine.
