    My experience was back when I ordered my 14 RT, I placed the order right after Club BRP and was initially told November or December as a delivery date. Sometime in October they changed it to February, and they actually gave me a build date. It was built on that date and I took delivery about one week later.

    The waiting sucks but the Spyder will be worth it.

    You need to get yourself unfrustrated! Whoever told you November didn't know what they were talking about, or were leading you on so you would buy!

    You'll get your Spyder after Bob Denman gets his, and not before. All orders will follow his.

    I am seeing on the CanAm Facebook page that they are offering 2018 test rides at specific dealers for the middle of December here in California. Iím not ordering special edition just an all dark one. I guess Iíll have to be patient. Thanks

    I also have a 2018 RT Limited on order. I don't think any dealer in America knows when the new production units will be shipped? My dealer told me he anticipates a late Dec/early Jan delivery to his location in Atlantic, IA. I won't be able to ride mine anyway considering our Northern weather???????? guess I will have to sit and look at it in the garage til the weather gets favorable...

    Same experience with my new 2014. Dealer always orders in October--after the sales meeting. Usually gets deliveries in March/April. Dealer ordered the wrong color for me. I wanted yellow and NOT cognac. Dealer said I was stuck with it. I got BRP care involved. They found a yellow one and that is the one the dealer prepped and delivered to me. I got it on April 30th and still got the two years additional warranty as advertised. I did not make a big stink about it to the dealer. He said nothing about the color glitch and neither did I. Dealer still comes through for me when I need help.

    Sung to the tune of the old Oscar Meyer song:

    Oh, I wish I had my twenty eighteen Spyder,
    That is what I'd truly like to see ee ee,
    Cuz if I had my twenty eighteen Spyder,
    It might restore my love for BRP.

    Bob stands there alone
    In his empty garage,
    Wondering when his new trike
    Won't be just a mirage.

    No matter that Winter
    Means no one can ryde,
    He yearns just to straddle
    That new naugahyde.

    His dreams of new farkles
    Become an obsession.
    He froths at the mouth ...
    He MUST take possession!

    Yet again his wife leads him
    Back into the house,
    Calms him down with some bacon
    And pleads, "Just chill out!"
