Below you will find a photo journey of my wife and I embarking on an exhilarating ride through 32 states on our 2014 Can-Am Spyder RT-LE. You’re probably asking yourself, what does one do for such a long ride (a whopping total of 17,000 miles, to be exact)?
What do you get when you gather over 600 Can-Am Spyder owners in Durango, Colorado? The 7th Annual Can-Am Spyder Owners Event, that’s what! Another Owners Event has come and gone, but it wasn’t without exhilaration, riding and most importantly – FUN.
If you weren’t able to attend, don’t worry we’re here to fill you in on all the excitement. So we headed back to the beautiful and scenic Durango, Colorado, which was where the event was held in 2012. This area is known for the Million Dollar Highway and we have to agree that the views are worth at least that. There’s a great mix of both mountain riding and high desert. Honestly, it doesn’t get much better than hitting the road on your Can-Am Spyder and riding through mother nature’s finest architecture.
You know you want to…
Get an Akrapovič exhaust for your Can-Am Spyder roadster, that is. Your rational mind will taunt you with arguments about light weight, world-class design and workmanship but deep down inside, it’s your heart that’s leading the charge on this one. You want to hear IT, that unmistakable deep rumble, that kind that sends a shiver up your spine every time you lean into the throttle. Life is meant to be lived, and a shiny new Akrapovič silencer for your Can-Am Spyder roadster is a sure-fire way to transport you to your “happy place”.
Celebrities may seem like they have it all, but there’s something Drew Brees wishes he could do that YOU can! What is it, you ask? What could the talented Football quarterback for the New Orleans Saints possibly not be able to do….
#RideASpyder, that’s what!
So perhaps being a famous MVP quarterback DOESN’T have all the perks (although, we think it probably does otherwise). Here’s the situation: Drew’s contract forbids him from riding motorcycles, but he really wants to ride the Can-Am Spyder. The solution: Drew found a loophole and told his agent he was “retiring” for a day. A little extreme? Maybe…but that is just how badly Drew wanted to experience the exhilaration and control of the Can-Am Spyder.
What’s better than a partnership between Can-Am Spyder and the amazingly talented Danica Patrick? How about: Can-Am Spyder, Danica Patrick AND the iconic Steven Tyler. See how Danica uses the controlled power of the Can-Am Spyder, aka the escape vehicle, to rescue Steven from paparazzi! You can also watch the Brooke Burke’s escape on the Can-Am Spyder Youtube Channel: bit.ly/1nsTMmR
Now that we’ve peaked your interest, let’s take it back to our first video with Danica. Imagine an open road with the wind blowing through your hair, feeling completely stable and confident on the smoothest ride on the road. THAT is how Danica felt during her first riding experience on the Can-Am Spyder. Check it out.
