I think everyone should just mark ignore on this thread if you disagree with the OP. Why try to defend the ss. If you like it that is all that should matter.
I was just curious as to who else has sold their slingshot and don't miss it one bit?
But also what made you sell it?
1st - Recalls, Recalls, Recalls! A-K-A Inconvenience, Inconvenience, Inconvenience! A-K-A Pissed Off, Pissed Off, Pissed Off!
2nd - Build Quality!
3rd - Drew way too much attention for my liking! (Knew it going into it, But did not think it would be as bad as it was) For the one's who love attention, Have At It! "Insecurities" (Cough, Cough)!!! (Probably don't help that people very often tell me that I look like LLCool J) LOL!!! No, But Seriously THEY DO!
4th - Just not a practical vehicle (The Weather-Man ain't never right). It seemed like the weather had to be just right to really enjoy your ride, I would say between 70-80. Below 70, You're getting the SNIFFLES. Above 80, with the engine heat, You're Burning Up!
5th - I just didn't feel safe in it! Always had a fear of a deer ending up in my lap! (I live in a heavily populated deer area).
6th - Also, I have talked to many Polaris Slingshot Sales and Service reps, and not one of them owns one. Some have told me flat out that they would NEVER buy one. (I didn't bother to ask them why)
But............. It was somewhat fun to drive for the most part! but for me the Cons definitely outweighed the Pros. I'm glad I got rid of it when I could, because the colder it gets here in Michigan the harder it would've been to sell.
-A Very Happy "Previous" SLINGSHOT Owner!
The guy here that never owned one probably wants one but can't afford it, justify it or get the other half to approve it. Nothing wrong with fans. They are always good for the team. How many of us enjoy having people ogle over our Slings?LOL, what does that say about somebody here that has never owned a SlingShot?
Interesting comment, I thought the purpose of a forum was to have a conversation and share info. People use forums to research a product so the more info and opinion the better. As with most things unhappy users are always more vocal, I think it's important to add some balance. Aways good to have both sides of a topic discussed.I think everyone should just mark ignore on this thread if you disagree with the OP. Why try to defend the ss.

I "fondly" remember the days when it was near 100 degrees and about the same humidity and riding my HD Springer. By comparison the Slingshot is a breath of fresh air...Before I bought my slingshot I was on this forum watching what people say and to see the problems the sling might have. Plus I always got a laugh when someone complains about the slingshot that it’s not comfortable and it’s hot and you get wet and etc. you know my drift.
I love my sling will never sell .
But this guy did not do his homework on this beautiful toy before he bought it.
Of course everyone should be welcome to any enthusiast forum and it should not matter if you are a present, past or future owner but hospitality only goes so far and anyone posting crap like the OP did should take a step back, think about what they are going to say for a second and decide how it will effect the majority that frequent the forum or will it even be useful? There are plenty of other outlets and social media sites where he could go and post up a rant or a laundry list of reasons why he feels his toy let him down.I joined this forum to learn about owning and driving a Slingshot long before I made the decision to buy one. During that time, I read, I learned, I asked questions, I formed and expressed opinions. I still think that was a wise move. Everyone is not required to agree. However, if people like me are not welcome, I do have other options. Personally, I think we will be a better forum by including people in, rather than shutting people out.
