26Danica Patrick, Brooke Burke pitch Can-Am Spyder as ultimate paparazzi escape tool [UPDATE]

Can-Am has added another pair of stars to its advertising push for the three-wheeled Spyder motorcycle. After showing former NHL star Mark Messier guaranteeing a number of things (playing on his guarantee of winning a crucial game in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1994), the company has hired IndyCar and NASCAR star Danica Patrick, and model/television personality Brooke Burke to talk about the Can-Am Spyder's talents as a paparazzi escape vehicle.

13Can-Am Spyder gets Mark Messier's seal of approval

Mark Messier played in the National Hockey League for 25 years and was so good at it that he earned the nicknames The Moose, Mr. June and The Messiah. In 1994, as captain of the New York Rangers and with his team down three games to two in the Eastern Conference Finals, he guaranteed the New York media that the Rangers would win the next game against the New Jersey Devils, playing on the Devils' home ice. It was Messier's hat trick in the game that gave the Rangers the win.

16Polaris patent reveals three-wheeled side-by-side "Slingshot"

It seems as though recreational vehicle maker Polaris is taking steps toward the production of quite an interesting, three-wheeled vehicle. Documents filed with the US Patent Office have revealed schematics for a Polaris "reverse trike" – that's two wheels in front and one in back – with seating for a driver and a passenger. According to the logo dug up by The Kneeslider, this buddy bike might eventually be called the Polaris Slingshot.

14Bombardier issues two Can-Am Spyder recalls over fire risks

Bombardier has issued two separate recalls for various models of its Can-Am Spyder. The first is for 2008-2009 GS and 2010 RS models. The fuel vapor canister vent hose in the engine compartment can leak, with accumulated fuel vapor a potential fire concern due to its proximity to the ignition.

4Bombardier recalls 3,200 Can-Am Spyder RT trikes over brake failure fears

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a bulletin for the recall of the 2010 Can-Am Spyder RT to rectify an issue with its brakes.

8Can-Am Spyder Hybrid reportedly under development at Canadian university

As compact as it is (in comparison to a car, anyway), the Can-Am Spyder doesn't guzzle much fuel. But that won't stop some from being lured by the tree-hugging credentials of a "hybrid" badge.

10Goblinize your Can-Am Spyder, get strange looks

We're having trouble coming up with an adequate set of adjectives to describe our opinions of the new Goblin WolfSpyder. On one hand, the idea of an enclosed three-wheeled vehicle that's capable of returning excellent fuel mileage and performance is intriguing. On the other hand, this is one incredibly ridiculous looking vehicle that offers little reason to justify its nearly $20,000 price tag (plus optional heat, air conditioning and overhead canopy) on top of the $15,449 Can-Am Spyder donor ve

AddWinding Road compares the available three-wheelers

Rex Roy from Winding Road says that the Can-Am Spyder looks like the end-result of a snowmobile crashing into a Caterham 7. Interesting analogy, we think, considering the single-track rear and the double-track fender-less front. BRP, makers of the Spyder, hope to bring the benefits of motorcycles to the masses by making the machine easier to master. Additionally, we think that the physical size and presence might help when it comes to making yourself seen on the roadways. The performance, while
