BRP Can-Am Spyder have invited the owner community and friends to be their guests at their dealer network throughout Australia & one stop in New Zealand. Essentially it is a day to closer connect with the owner community and give guests the opportunity to get up close with the latest models. Test rides are available if requested.

The days activities commence by welcoming owners and guests on arrival followed by a BBQ lunch, Spyder trivia, numerous giveaways, technical issues answered on request and the opportunity to meet other like minded owners. Lunch & drinks will be supplied by your dealer.

Owner clubs or groups are strongly encouraged to organise themselves to ride and arrive together. Riders who attend as a group receive a special Can-Am Spyder Owner patch.

This hasn’t been done before and the dealers are excited to see the roadshow get off the ground. Myself & Catrina, BRP’s Can-Am Spyder Amabassadors would luv to catch up with friends again and make some new ones. Not all dealers are involved this round.

SPYDER FAMILY – Catrina & I have a passionate belief to help bring together a strong Aussie Spyder Community. YOU the owners are the community. YOU the owners, who turn up to ride, take photos, get lost, offers suggestions, fall over and make us laugh are what makes a community. YOU the owners are kicking one day attendance numbers out of the park. Your passion is our passion.
In light of that, our first SpyderMates ‘Bike Night’ is being held at Brisbane Seadoo & Can-Am Zillmere on the 3rd of March. We secured more goodies to giveaway (no sheep stations) We have been working on a large screen & I mean huuuge for the night. Come see your face on the big screen, I’m sure I have you on video from the past somewhere. If you want a good night with friendly faces, we’ll see you there. We have more surprises to come.
