My perspective for this article comes from almost 100,000 Spyder miles, currently 60,000 miles on a 2016 Can-Am Spyder F3L.

A special thank you goes to Central Florida Powersports and Jason Ennis for
allowing me an extended test ride on the Can-Am Ryker 900. I was able to log
more than 660 miles over 7 days.

Appearance - The Ryker is a unique ride all its own. So what makes it unique? Most obvious is appearance. It draws curious attention from even non-riders. The front skewed A-frame pushes the front wheels forward of the nose. The shaft drive versus a chain or belt drive allows for a lower seat position and a lower center of gravity. The shaft drive also exposes the rear wheel giving the Ryker a low-slung, aggressive appearance. The many color panel options available allows the Ryker to be personalized. Just the appearance makes the Ryker look like a “Ride Like No Other”. The fun factor is built right into the appearance.

Performance - The power and drive train combination alone make the Ryker unique. The performance of the 3-cylinder 900 cc Rotax ACE engine on the model tested backed up the aggressive appearance. There is a great similarity in sound to a Sea-Doo at start up; a quiet but throaty tone. The fully automatic Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) and the direct shaft drive work together to give instant torque to the rear wheel. The power to weight ratio of the 77 horsepower, 616 pound 900 Ryker is .125. A Spyder F3s has a ratio of .128. My experience gives the Ryker a slight advantage in quick acceleration over the F3. With the CVT and shaft drive there is no shift lag or belt flexing. Twist the responsive throttle and you go! Hang on. The Ryker will try to ride out from under you. Engine performance and the drive train makes the Ryker a “Ride Like No Other” and just plain fun to ride.

Handling - Steering on the Ryker is direct, there is no power assist. In my opinion, this gives a better feel and connection to the road. The lower stance of the Ryker also contributes to this feeling. Normal riding is easy, requiring no extra exertion. There is no slop from the handlebars to the wheels. Twitch the handlebars and the response is laser-quick. Riding aggressively in turns and corners requires a little more upper body strength, but the direction is true. With the standard shocks and sway bar on the model tested, there was some front-end roll on hard corners. The low center of gravity helps lessen the roll but it’s still there. Aggressive riders may want to consider a beefier sway bar and/or upgraded shocks. I still found it exhilarating with the standard equipment.  Contrary to my initial concern. deceleration is quick. The weight mechanism in conjunction with the CVT and compression braking unwinds the 900 Rotax in good fashion so less braking is required to slow down. The brake affects all three wheels, same as the Spyder, and are good, but they don’t have the grip of a Spyder due to much smaller rotors and pads.

More of the fun factor. Decelerate to go into a corner at the right speed and approach, throttle up in the curve, then gun it coming out of the apex and you feel like you are shot out of a cannon. Here’s a quote from Hal BikerDoc after a ride we did over some of the curviest roads we could find in Lake County Florida:

“I rode my F3 and Dave Van Verth followed me for 90 miles on the Ryker. I hit every curve at double the posted speed and every start up from 0 to 60 or 80+ as fast as the F3 would go. Congrats to Dave and the Ryker. They stayed right on my tail for every mile in spite of my test to shake them. I no longer harbor the illusion that the F3 can run away from the Ryker. It appears to be quite a machine for the money.”

VSS and Modes - The Ryker is equipped the Vehicle Stability System (VSS) like the Spyder. The VSS consists of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Traction Control System (TCS) and the Stability Control System (SCS). The Ryker 900 has the ability to select from three different riding modes; Standard, Eco and Sport. In Standard Mode, the VSS systems operate as set up from the factory giving a good balance between ride performance, stability and economy. The Eco Mode reduces fuel consumption by limiting throttle response and maximum throttle opening making for a smoother cruising speed. The rear wheel will spin quite easily in either the Eco or Standard on a quick throttle as long as you go straight. Turn the handlebars and the Traction Control System kicks in to reduce the rear wheel spin. Sport Mode allows for significantly more rear wheel spin and a higher handlebar turning angle giving a drifting-like experience. The road type and surface condition determine the amount of drifting that can happen. Of course, consider where you may be using the Sport Mode and the surrounding conditions. I did most of my test riding in the standard mode and found it more than adequate for my style of riding. Note: The Ryker 600 does not have a Sport Mode and the Rally Edition has an additional Rally Mode for use on loose gravel or unpaved roads. These handling and mode options make the Ryker a “Ride Like No Other” and even more fun to ride.

Display - The 4.5-inch display on the Ryker has good visibility both in daylight and at night. It is straight forward to operate using just two buttons on the left side of the display. Fuel and temperature gauges are on the left and right side of the display respectively. On the right side, next to the temperature gauge are the mode selection, the transmission setting (P – Park, F - Forward or R – Reverse), the VSS icon and a passenger icon if riding with two up. The clock, Trip A, Trip B and Total Miles are displayed at the top left. Pressing the top left button will cycle through these functions. Pressing and holding will reset the Trip miles. Miles per hour are displayed in the middle. Pressing the bottom left button will change the display in the bottom center. Each press will cycle through RPM, Fuel Statistics, Autonomy (mph or km) and Settings. When Settings appears, press and hold to enter into the available setting menu. Press and hold the bottom left button at any time to select driving modes. Note that the Sport Mode will automatically turn off when the Ryker is shut down.

Features - The tool-free U-Fit system lets you adjust the driver foot pegs, brake pedal and handlebars to accommodate just about any rider.

A manual parking brake is on the left side. When turned down, the brake is disengaged. Flip it up to set the Parking Brake. Give the Ryker a little rock and you will hear the brake engage.

Reverse is also a manual operation. The shift lever is on the left side just below the service cover and is used to change from Forward or Reverse. You can reach the lever with your left hand, or with a little practice you should be able to use your left foot. The lever moves back to engage reverse. Push to the front for Forward. Flashing turn signals and audible beeps indicate that reverse is engaged along with the R on the display. If you turn the Ryker off while in reverse, you will hear the beeps on the next start up to alert you that reverse is still engaged.

More Features/Info

  • Self-canceling turn signals

  • Recommended fuel is regular unleaded gasoline

  • Fuel mileage – ranged between 27.5 and 32 during the test

  • There are no 4-way flashers (only when reverse is engaged)

  • Stock seat is comfortable for the first 75 miles on a trip. Then it’s not

  • Recommend the adjustable sport windshield option for highway riding

  • Glove box is just that. Not enough room for rain gear

  • Two USB outlets in the glove box

Summary - Did I say I had fun on the Ryker? The Ryker is unique, FUN, and definitely a “Ride Like No Other”. Can-Am and BRP have created an affordable vehicle for the young and young at heart consumer. The Ryker 600 starts at $8499, the 900 at $9999 ($10,549 as tested) and the Rally Edition at $10,999. A leasing agreement is also offered for additional financing flexibility. The Ryker is a lot of bike for the money. It’s a great, fun machine to rip around on roads or take on weekend adventures.

By Hal Mette, AKA BikerDoc

Cluster1.jpg

First let me say thank you to Central Florida PowerSports for allowing me an extended test ryde of the new 2018 F3 Limited with BRP Connect.

The handling and performance characteristics of the 2018 are virtually identical to the 2016 and 2017 F3T and F3 Limited so no need to focus much on that if you test ryde for an upgrade. Of course the much mentioned cluster is the big upgrade on the bike. The visibility on the all digital gauge is indeed greatly improved. If you are an old folk like me you will need bifocals to read the small print in the trip stats and a couple other areas, but the real excitement was when I took my non-visually impaired next door neighbor for a ryde and he could read even the fine print on a sunny Florida day while sitting in the back seat. No more screen sunshine washout.

Cluster2.jpg

One comfort factor that I had not expected came from the elevated back seat. That increase in the back seat height also increases the amount of seat support for the back of the driver. For the first time since 2010 I could ride the Spyder over 100 miles at a time without a driver backrest and experience no pain. Granted I currently ryde a 2016 F3T so the 2017 model may have already provided this feature.

Cluster4.jpg

The joystick (the replacement for those little directional buttons) is easy to handle in terms of maneuvering through the screens and I particularly liked the trip stats report that I left up on the right of the screen most of the time. Of course, the joystick takes you through all the the setting features previously available on the Spyder. The features of pairing the Spyder with the smart phone and the driver comm system went smooth as silk although in two days I was not able to pair the passenger comm (Sena 20S) with the bike. The music from FM and my iPhone was amazing on the six speaker sound system on the limited. Also I was surprised to get better FM reception out in the countryside than I had ever experienced before.  

When you access BRP Connect life gets a little more complicated. First of all you need to download the BRP Connect apps to your phone before you arrive for a test ryde and you need to configure your phone so that all privacy and security blocks are removed to allow BRP Connect unbridled access to your phone information, otherwise you will be asked to authorize it on the phone every time you start the bike. By the way, when you start the bike there is a little download time from the smartphone to the bike that is required before you can really get started. For the experienced ryder, I recommend you study everything available about the cluster and BRP Connect before the ryde.

I got stuck in a loop, i.e. frozen within BRP Connect, a few times and I wondered if it was my technical ineptness but I had it rechecked by the GM, Master Spyder Tech, and top sales person and they verified my findings. There seems to be some minor issues with BRP Connect to be resolved - not uncommon with new software. I studied every video I could find on the new bike and on BRP Connect. I find there is a need for a more detailed tutorial for BRP Connect that focuses especially on the mechanics of its use, not its concept.

Cluster3.jpg

If a newbie friend decides to take a Spyder for a test ryde, I suggest you counsel them to take two separate and distinct test rydes. One without BRP Connect focusing on the Spyder's handling and performance characteristics that differ so much from other rydes and then after considerable study and preparation, take a second test ryde using the full screen with BRP Connect capabilities. This ryde could be mind blowing for a newbie if you try to digest everything at once. 

Your comments and personal experiences with the new 2018 Instrument Cluster and BRP Connect are welcomed.

Getting Ready ...

White Hat, my sixth Spyder is all packed and ready to hit the road early Monday morning.  I will join up with the Road Warrior Group on 10/24 in Greenville, MS and ryde the balance of the journey with them.  I have reviewed the google files and can see that Craig Anders of the Road Warrior Foundation has done his usual fine job of designing this ryde.  The combination of ryding these fantastic roads and getting to know these committed veterans, will make for quite a week.

Each evening I will describe our days journey and reception events at the welcome stops.   I should have some great pics for you and will do my best to describe not only the physical journey but the feelings generated along the way.  Several Spyder Ryders are accompanying the group for most of the trip and we hope dozens or even hundreds of others will join us for various segments of the trip.

Its about 800 miles from my home to my meet up point in Greenville, MS.  I will ryde 575 miles on Monday and the balance of the trip on Tuesday so I will be there well ahead of time to greet the arriving Road Warriors.

For those of you who can not join physically, I hope you will enjoy my blog and offer your comments and support.  This coming week will be another opportunity for a once in a lifetime journey.    P.S.   Be sure to buy your raffle tickets to support the Road Warrior Foundation and have a chance to win a new F3T.

Day 1 - 2017 Road Warrior Ryde - Guest Post from Jay MacLeod

Day 1 of the 2017 Road Warrior Ryde began in Austin, Tx. After orchestrating a successful Spyders In The Hills Rally, Jay MacLeod still found time and energy to ryde with a few fellow Texas Hill Country Chapter US Spyder Ryders and meet up with the Day 1 send off of the 2017 Road Warrior Ryde. 

Jay, Dot McGehee Bailey,  Cheryl Burns Grove, and  Tom Grove were ready to depart from Woods Cycle Country in New Braunfels, TX heading to Austin but were delayed an hour due to a storm cell moving through and flash flooding.  Not to be deterred by Mother Nature, The "Drowned Rat Crew" made it to the send off. 

Preparations were happening everywhere at the kick off hotel. The Road Warriors packing up, the support crew and their vehicles along with other Spyder Ryders who were able to follow along were all getting their gear and their rydes ready.

The "Drowned Rat Crew" followed along too ... that is until Jay's Tonto needed to make a stop for gas. Jay claims that this was the fastest pit stop EVER and he had to ryde at unspeakable speeds to catch up to his crew and the Road Warrior ryde in only a short 10 mile stretch while they never rode over the speed limit. 

Jay and crew rode to College Station, TX with the Road Warriors before they reluctantly had to return and head home. 

Jay, thanks for sharing your Road Warrior experience and your photos. We wish you could have continued the ryde too. There's a few more pictures from Jay below.

Check back  for more experiences and highlights as the 2017 Road Warrior Ryde continues.


Day 3 – Hal BikerDoc Meets Up With The Road Warrior Ryde

Shortly after the arrival of the Road Warriors to Greenville, Mississippi a local brewery who had already closed, opened their heart and their doors to provide a venue of a welcome pizza party for the Road Warriors. The more adventuresome Road Warriors may have even made it up the hill to the casino before calling it a night. No matter how late they might’ve been they were all at their Spyders at 7:50 AM this morning ready to roll again.

The departure temperature was 43° and our riding wind-chill was soon between zero and 9°. While waiting to depart I interviewed some of the Road Warriors. Generally, they were very impressed with the Spyder. They like the comfort and ease of handling and were anxious to have an opportunity to try the full capabilities of the Spyder. One of them even mentioned that they hope they wouldn’t be monitored too closely on the track at Barber Motorsports as they would like to see how fast the Spyder could go.

Well the group is on its way to Birmingham Alabama.


Day 4 - Greenville, MS to Birmingham, AL

What an amazing day.  We left Greenville, MS with our regular core group of ryders which numbered a surprising 30 to 35 Spyders and we stopped for lunch to pick up our escort at Columbus, MS.  We picked up enough motorcycles and Spyders to put the group over 75 strong.  Thank goodness we had a police escort for most of the way to Birmingham.

We stopped at the Barber Motorsports Museum and Track. While the support ryders viewed the history of some of the finest motorcycles in existence, the Road Warriors themselves were slipped onto the motorcycle racetrack to test their Spyder skills a bit further. Of course, once again the local VFW came through with enough food for supper to feed twice as many folks. Again, kudos to Craig Anders. He is the all-time master of using google earth at his desk to find some of the most exciting back roads you could ever dream about. The ryding in the hill and curve country surrounding Birmingham is superb. I can see why the local Spyder chapter is always so busy with rydes.


Day 5 – Road Warrior Ryde - Birmingham, AL to Pigeon Forge, TN

This morning as we prepared I chatted with specific Road Warriors as has been my daily practice. I told them I was so impressed over the years that every one of them I had met had such a positive attitude. One of the two fellows responded, “Hey man I was a complete mess and I didn’t care about anything until this opportunity came about. This trip turned my life around.” Now that is precisely why I think BRP and each one of us should continue to support this charity.  We can make a difference because the Road Warrior Foundation makes a difference.

We hit wheels up a little after 8am with our usual temperature near 40 degrees and our wind chill near zero. As soon as we left the Birmingham metro area you could tell we were headed to the mountains.   The scenery became quickly beautiful and the roads very challenging.  We had a police escort all the way to the Tennessee border so we rocketed along occasionally approaching 90mph. Oops must have misread my speedometer lol.

In Tennessee the hills got bigger and the roads more challenging. We stopped once for lunch and again for a mayor proclamation honoring our Road Warriors. Everywhere we went they were honored and once again we logged about 300 miles.

This is the ryde of a lifetime. Every Spyder owner should consider it at some point. I will warn you that it is a demanding and challenging ryde in addition to being one of the most satisfying experiences you will ever feel.


Day 6 – Road Warrior Ryde to Woodstock, GA shared by Chris Banas

The morning started with a ride briefing and the Star Spangle Banner sung by a Spyder Ryder who has done it for the previous years as well. We started out in the fog and cold. Temp was 38 degrees but dropped in the valleys and low hollows. We rode the Inez Parkway, Foothills Parkway, and Cherahola. The lunch stop was at Lynn's Place.

The ryde continued to Woodstock, GA where we picked up a police escort with a rolling road block on the Interstate for 30 miles through multiple counties. The escort was led by a Police version of the Spyder. Fire trucks lined the overpasses as we rode beneath. The Road Warriors and support ryders pulled into downtown Woodstock to flag waving crowds where we were met by the Mayor and a nice ceremony. After the ceremony we were all treated to a nice dinner.

Everyone is looking forward to Charleston, hopefully without too much rain.


Last Day - 2017 Road Warrior Foundation Ryde

RWF 2017 Final day – We loaded up the gear in a light drizzle and suited up for the projected rain. The route was changed to try and get us ahead of the worst weather so we played in Interstate traffic for a bit. Thankfully for all, it was a Saturday so no weekday rush hour traffic. By the first break it was still overcast but we were ahead of the rain so we got to shed some layers. Thanks to SpyderDeb Pauly we got an impromptu police escort for a bit. Good thing too as the two officers that were not providing escort were busy writing tickets!

The ryde continued to a quick lunch and fuel stop before pressing on. Next stop was God’s Acre Healing Springs where we met a local riding group (9 bikes and 1 Spyder) that made a presentation to the Road Warriors and rode escort towards Charleston. Just outside of Charleston we stopped in a rest area and were met by the local Combat Vet riding club and picked up more riders for escort. These guys were AWESOME!

We took Charleston by storm which included the Combat Vets doing a rolling roadblock to get us on the Interstate and then surrounding our group all the way in. At the Charleston River bridge we picked up a police escort. They supplemented the Combat Vet group, not the other way around. We received a warm welcome, dinner, and a chance to relive the events and friendships made over the previous week.

Thanks to support of so many we have a new group of RWF Alumni and 2017 is almost a wrap.  Ticket sales continue at www.roadwarrior.org/raffle  be sure to pick up an extra, two, or ten to get us on track for 2018.
