This past weekend, BRP Can-Am Spyder roadster owners from all over North America rode to Los Angeles for the Ryde to the Red Carpet event. This year’s annual owner’s event – the second for Spyder – was in celebration of the Spyder roadster role in this summer’s blockbuster hit, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Hollywood didn’t know what hit them, as 220 Spyder roadsters and 410 Spyder owners were parading around the Los Angeles and Hollywood streets for three straight days.
Most of the owners stayed at the host hotel, the Sheraton Universal.
