yes we've already went through this discusion before no need to hash over the status of what kind of vehicle it is, the insurance company classifies as a motorcycle and it is listed as a motorcycle on the web site but whatever.

and it is super fun

I believe you have misunderstood the semantics of the word "motorcycle"

A vehicle with 2 wheels and no motor is usually called a bicycle. "Bi" for 2.
The same basic design, but with a 3rd wheel is called a tricyle. "Tri" for 3.
Both have the suffix of "cycle"
Hence, a motorized 3 wheeler with a basic cycle design (legs straddling the machine versus sitting in or on top of the machine) would still hold true to the "cycle" suffix.
Drop the "bi" or "tri" prefix when adding a motor and you have a "motorcycle".
Therefore, a can-am is indeed a motorcycle, not a car.

The arguement could easily be made that a T-Rex is a car and not a motorcycle, as the operator sits in a seat within the machine, but I believe a can-am would qualify as a motorcycle.

I am sure that Tim will be seeing a lot less of Lisa since she will be out on the spyder most of the time See it didn't take us long at all to get our menz to give us what we wanted
