    Hello all, I am picking up my new Slingshot SL LE this Saturday in Elk Grove, Ca. at California Custom. The wife and I test drove one last weekend and loved it. I have membership in another forum for my 08 Victory Vision which is still in the garage and will remain a member of the family for years to come. I found the Victory Riders forum very helpful in all aspects of ownership including a comeraderie that added to the fun. I am hopeful to find the same as I spend more time brousing and interacting here. Can't wait for Saturday!
    Okthenbye!

    LOL. Just saying I personally enjoy driving my SS more than my car or bike. Sun on my face, Pearl Jam on the stereo, sitting down and enjoying the wind in my hair while I chase the sunset.

    Yeah, I guess I am saying 3>2 & 3 better than 4. :)

    Welcome @Okthenbye! Like the Victory forum, moditis is rampant (maybe you already have it). People here are also friendly and helpful, it's an awesome community. While I never would have guessed 3 wheels is so much fun, and a turbo makes it that much funner, the members here were spot-on with their feedback and it's just a riot!

    Squirrel and I pulled the trigger, V-twin en-route. We've got two machines down and aren't happy about it. True, one will be back up shortly and it is cold and snowy in WI, but one will be down a while (although that's why we bought the second as a "backup" machine).

    I do enjoy driving the Slingshot more than the race car (which is convertible), so 3 > 4, no argument there. We do get up-front parking at events just like a motorcycle--huge plus. Dealers have been awesome when it comes to support and fast warranty work, and Polaris has covered most problems. However, taking the 2015 SL in for warranty work all the time has gotten old, and they're neither cheap nor small machines. Time for a less-expensive, smaller backup.We'll see how a familiar 3 stacks up against a new 2.
