My review of the Can-Am Spyder 990

Well I have done it, I went yesterday and took my test drive on the 2009 Spyder. Tim was with me and yes he rode It was very comfortable and had great pick up. I know we're not supposed to mention triple digits so I wont, but it will. I am in love with this machine! It handles great, doing a 360* is no problem at all and it will put ample speed on ya before you know it. Now I gotta have one so I am selling everything I got what do you need I have some money saved but need a bit more. Handsdown one of the funest bikes I've riden.
