This was discussed in the past and the general opinion being it is not a good idea, check the owners manual for proper towing and you find that BRP recommends all three wheels off the ground for any transporting of the Spyder. :)

I have seen additional "coaster" type apparatus that go under the wheels on cars being towed with a dolly. Perhaps something like that might work, as it would keep the rear wheel from spinning, just as if it was on a full trailer

yep those are called dolly's . before rollbacks got really popular wrecker drivers would use those if a car they were towing had no rolling wheels in the front or back.
the other is gojacks the are not for road use
