Our names are Mike & Catrina. We are both honoured to be the official BRP Can-Am Spyder Ambassadors for Australia. We live on the Sunshine Coast Queensland, Australia. We both love chocolate, alcohol and riding, but not all at the same time. We still buy CD’s as mp3’s & iTunes scare us.
Two BRP Can-Am Spyder Roadster (RT Limited’s), two F3 Triple Blacks and a forum – that’s how this story began. Are you aware approximately 5500 Spyders have been sold in Australia since 2008, that is 5.5% of the world market. Do you want more info about Can-Am Spyders, products, see videos and photos? Do you own a Can-Am Spyder or thinking towards ownership in the future?
This website will allow you to browse what interests you. Catrina & I launched the SpyderMates.com forum in Dec 2013. In a short 12 months it grew substantially and was a popular destination for enthusiasts. It has now evolved to its current form…SpyderMates 2.0 if you like. This platform opposed to a forum allows us to concentrate more on promoting the Spyder experience and riding lifestyle.
Moving away from the membership model we will reach more people. We hope to inspire the general lifestyle riding a Can-Am Spyder can bring. Feelings of exhilaration, relaxation and camaraderie is something we aspire to.
We now send out over 1100 Spyder ENewsletters periodically to owners and potential enthusiasts and the feedback from those has been extremely positive.
Myself and Catrina’s vision has evolved and we hope what you see on this site will enhance your Spyder experience and encourage others to join the Can-Am Spyder fraternity.
Best Regards & Stay Safe
Mike & Catrina
