The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that a fleet of Can-Am Spyder roadsters, the unique three-wheeled vehicle offered by Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), will be available for demo rides at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this July 9-11 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.These Can-Am Spyder demo vehicles will include both the Spyder RS and the Spyder RT. The Spyder RT is the company’s new touring model for 2010.
"We enjoy getting out and seeing as many riders as possible across the United States with our demo tour," said BRP’s Chaz Rice, manager, media and public relations, Can-Am. "AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is a great way to do that, as well as celebrate motorcycling history. Our Can-Am products helped write some of U.S. off-road racing history in the 1970s and early 1980s, and its exciting to not only reacquaint ourselves to that past but introduce attendees to the future of Can-Am: the Can-Am Spyder roadster."For more information about Can-Am Spyder roadsters, see Can-Am.BRP.com.Held at the world-class Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features vintage and post-vintage competition in motocross, trials, hare scrambles, roadracing and dirt track.
