Montreal, Canada - BRP Powersports Turns the City into a Playground PDF Print E-mail
Written by Edward F. Nesta   
Montreal, Canada, Skyline - Photo by Luxury ExperienceMontréal, Canada has architecture, culture, and cuisine, but this time I visited for adventure, speed, and excitement on the ‘Wow' toys from BRP  makers of Ski-Doo, Lynx, Sea-Doo, Evinrude and Rotax motors, and the Can-Am all terrain Side-By-Side, ATV, and Spyder Roadster powersports ‘toys'.  Invited to participate in Club BRP (which should stand for Best Ride Possible), I ventured to Montréal to quench my thirst for speed, power, and excitement, I was not disappointed.

In July 2011, I packed my racing gloves, special racing sunglasses, and a lot of enthusiasm as I ventured to Montréal, in the province of Québec, Canada to partake in the largest gathering of enthusiasts ever by Club BRP. It was just weeks after the Grand Prix du Canada in Montréal, and the City opened its doors to another tier of driver wannabes, the casual but eager everyday consumer whose hunger for speed and excitement may dwarf that of the professional drivers. If you do not believe me, then just attend a motorcycle rally, or a future Club BRP, and you will know what I mean.  

Where to Stay 

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is an impressive landmark hotel that opened in 1958 and has been newly renovated.  The luxury hotel has 1,037 rooms (100 are suites) and all of the bells and whistles that one has come to expect from the Fairmont brand. 

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth, throughout the years has, and continues to be, the place for dignitaries, heads-of-state, celebrities, and discerning travelers. The hotel gained additional notoriety when John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their famous "bed-in" in 1969 and wrote and recorded the song, Give Peace a Chance, during their stay in Suite 1742.

The gourmand traveler will appreciate the hotel's restaurants, The Beaver Club, "known as one of the best restaurants in the country", Le Montréalais Bistrot-Bar-Restaurant known for its Mediterranean cuisine, Les Voyageurs Bar and Lounge, and the Boutique Gourmandise, The Beaver Club's new gourmet food boutique. In addition, the Les Voyageurs Bar Lounge features live Jazz every Thursday at 9:00pm.

During my stay, I had an excellent dinner at Le Montréalais Bistrot-Bar-Restaurant. The restaurant is located on two levels and has a large bar that also serves food and is the perfect stop while you are waiting for your table. This is definitely a restaurant with a view where you can sit and overlook the landmark, Mary Queen of the World Cathedral, as well as downtown Montréal, while enjoying your dinner or cocktail.

Business travelers can keep current with in-room computer dataport, wireless high-speed internet access, working desk with halogen lamp, and office supplies. The hotel also has a business center, and has wireless high speed internet access throughout the hotel.    

Other amenities include the Health Club & Spa with 24-hour gym and an indoor pool open from 6:00 am for early risers, and until 10:00 pm, for those who enjoy a late night swim.

The hotel is centrally located and just a short walk to the Palais des Congrès de Montréal Convention Centre, and the famous Crescent Street that becomes the place to be when the Formula One Teams descend on Montréal for the Grand Prix du Canada held at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. In addition, the hotel is just a short walk to the Vieux-Port (Old Port) and Vieux- Montréal (Old Montréal). With its central location and excellent amenities and services, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth will appeal to leisure as well as business travelers.

Adventures

With an eye on a different type of trip to Montréal, I was excited to be a member of Club BRP and to learn about and drive their extensive line of powersports equipment and for the kid in all of us, powersports toys. 

Club BRP set up an elaborate Playground near Vieux-Port (Old Port) where they definitely came prepared to WOW the participants, and they did. In one area of the Playground, they had their extensive line of watercrafts which included the Sea-Doo and motorcrafts powered by Rotax engines, and they did not just come with a couple of Sea-Doos or motorcraft, but with enough to keep a good size group feeling the speed as they each buzzed the water surface with their powersport toy of choice.

In another area of the Playground, they had a dozen Cam-Am Spyder Roadsters, which are a unique vehicle with two wheels in the front and a single wheel in the rear that provides an exhilarating ride. The Roadsters waited patiently to be opened up on either the closed course circuit or on the open road if you had an approved motorcycle license from your respective country. There was a nice selection of the Roadster Touring (RT) as well as the Roadster Sport (RS and RS-S) machines ready for my selection, and of course, I selected the RS-S edition.

What a Ride (WOW!) 

Just a short walk from where the Can-Am Spyder Roadsters awaited, were the other all terrain Can-Am products, the Outlander ATVs and the Commander X Side-by-Sides, with a mix of the larger powerful machines such as the 800cc and 1000cc ATV's. There was a makeshift course set up for us to put the machines through their paces; the course featured large dirt jumps, stretches of ‘fallen' tree trunks to run over, and other goodies to deal with and we were encouraged to put the machines to the test.

Taking the Outlander Out for a Ride

Being a predominantly off-road kind of person, I opted to spend my allotted time putting the Can-Am line of products through their paces while getting that burst of adrenaline going; I was never disappointed with any of the machines. My favorite was definitely the Can-Am Spyder RS-S that was as exhilarating as any of the racing machines that I have driven, and I have raced a few nice machines (i.e. shifter carts, open wheel Formula Fords, race ready Ford STSs, Porsches, and Ford Mustangs).

Sightseeing

In addition to my powersports adventures, I did take time to walk around the beautiful city of Montréal to admire the splendid architecture and experience many of its famous sights.

I started with a visit to the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (Museum of Fine Arts), which opened in 1912, and has an impressive permanent collection, as well diverse temporary exhibits.

I also visited the Musée de BMO Groupe Financier, housed in the Bank, which was built in 1847 in the neo-classical style. Small, yet interesting, the museum had old passbooks on display, a selection of currency, and other historical artifacts.

Crossing rue Saint-Jacques through the park, I went to the magnificent Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal (Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal) constructed between the years 1824 - 1829 in the Gothic Revival style that is just a bit smaller than Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York to give a reference point as to its size.

Inside - Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal 

A few of the many noteworthy details of the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal are the twin towers, the 10-bell carillon, the pulpit, the impressive stained glass windows, the altar, and the organs.

Architecturally, the landscape of the city is a fascinating and eclectic mix of contemporary and historic buildings. One of the more interesting contemporary buildings is the Palais de Congrés de Montréal with its colorful façade. Nicknamed the "lifesaver building," it takes up an entire block and runs between Saint-Antoine and Av. Viger.  

I had the opportunity to experience the Palais de Congrés de Montréal as it roared to life when  BRP held their opening night ceremony there and introduced the audience to their extensive line of powersports toys. The BRP Team delivered the WOW as they drove select vehicles across the stage and between the rows of the audience; it was a spectacular evening, and it whet my appetite to grab the handlebars of a Can-Am Spyder RS, or a steering wheel of an ATV or Side-by-Side and take-off for an exhilarating ride through the streets of Montréal.

Art and sculpture abounds in Montréal, and directly across the street from the Palais de Congrés de Montréal is Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, which features the artist Jean-Paul-Riopelle's large-scale sculpture and fountain, La Joute.

I also visited the interesting Musée d'Art Contemporain (Contemporary Art Museum) and took a stroll in their peaceful Sculpture Garden.

Venturing outside of Montréal, I drove up to Valcourt, Quebec, which was a short 90-minute ride to visit the J. Armand Bombardier Museum. The museum is a "must-see" for powersports enthusiasts, and especially for winter sports fans who appreciate the fine craftsmanship combined with power that equals the legendary Ski-Doo; as the museum takes the visitor back to the beginning and all the way through to the present.

J. Armand Bombardier Museum 

The tour is a look at one man's dream to "invent a little machine that will float on snow," and J. Armand Bombardier did that and more. At age 15 Armand created his first machine "that floated on snow", alas it had an extremely large wooden propeller to create the thrust to move the machine, and it was deemed a success but also dangerous.

This little bump on the snow did not slow Armand down as a few years later he opened his own shop in his garage and started to design the legendary Ski-Doo. A side note is that the original name was Ski-Dog, but due to a typo by a local newspaper who printed the name as Ski-Doo, the name we all know so well was born. The original garage, where it all started, still stands and is an integral part of the museum and the tour.

There are actors who take you through the time in period clothing with period props as they explain the challenges and success of Armand Bombardier. One of the more fascinating sections is when they talk about the revolutionary invention of the sprocket wheel/track system that allowed the machine to create traction on snow. The museum also had one of the original multi-person carriers called the B12 that made Armand Bombardier an internationally star as he sold the vehicles to winter destinations around the world.

Across the street from the museum is the home of BRP and the factory where they assemble the Can-Am Spyder Roadster, Sea-Doo, and Ski-Doo. A tremendous amount of care, passion, loyalty, and pride goes into the assembly of each machine at this facility. The town of Valcourt is quaint and progressive; at any time, you may hear the familiar roar of a Can-Am Spyder RS, RS-S, or RT cruising by.  There are factory tours available in addition to the Museum tour.

Near the museum, is the home of J. Armand Bombardier, and although not open to the public for tours, the exterior and surrounding gardens are exquisite and worth a stroll by while visiting the J. Armand Bombardier Museum.

Where to Dine

Montréal offers an expansive selection of excellent restaurants that range from fine dining experiences to more casual venues. Having been in Montréal on several occasions, I enjoyed adding to my restaurant portfolio and experiencing both sides of the restaurant equation.

Le Montréalais Bistrot-Bar-Restaurant located at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel, is a downtown favorite and focuses on Mediterranean cuisine, grilled meat, and fresh fish, and has a bistro ambience.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the award-winning fine dining Le Piment Rouge, named as "Montréal's Best Restaurant 2010/2011" by Le Devoir and CBC Radio Canada, focuses on Szechuan cuisine and "Haute Chinese Chinese" with spicy Szechuan cuisine, as well as offering lighter Cantonese cuisine.

Club BRP had a special event at the restaurant and ordered a wide selection of dishes to be shared family style. One of my favorite dishes was the Poulet du général Tao, sauce du Piment Rouge (General Tao's Chicken in "Le Piment Rouge" Sauce) that was crispy, spicy, and very tasty. Another nice dish that I really enjoyed was the Filets de porc, sauce au miel et au poivre (Pork Tenderloin in Honey and Pepper Sauce). 

Le Piment Rouge is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday from 11:00 am until 11:00 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 11:00 pm.
