I rode a Can Am when they first came out. I am not in the target group for them tho, so my opinion is biased. I didn't find it fun (for me). Then again, except for side cars, I haven't ridden a 3 wheeler I enjoyed.  Have spoken to folks that love the Can Ams. The dealer near me has regular test rides, that would be your best bet. (Well, a dealer near you would be better!) Good luck!

I did a demo ride a few years ago. I enjoyed it but it is different. The ride is "jiggly" and being a three track vehicle, it's more difficult to dodge debris and potholes. Cornering is different; you can lean but the rig doesn't. I'd love to try one on a road trip. Reverse is a nice thing, too!  I could see having one when I can't do two wheels.  I would get one before I'd buy a trike (or a Slingshot).
