Since the Slingshot will most likely be classified as a Motorcycle we will probably have a bunch of Motorcycle riders here.

So post up your current or previously owned Motorcycles and lets see what you've got :)

I will kick this off with my bikes:

1950 BSA B33


1966 Suzuki M50


1969 Honda CB350


1978 Honda CB125S


2010 Harley Davidson Forty-Eight


2014 Honda Grom

I really want a Grom like yours to toss around locally. I only work 8 miles from home, and no highway, so I think It'd be very fun. I think my Nephews would sh!t a brick if I came home with one, as they are 15 and 17 and we hang out a lot.

Most fun bike - SV650 with the F800ST a very very close second, it was just too heavy to be the very best for everything. That SV650 was the most communicative, reliable, simple hooligan bike ever...

I included an image of the Lotus also because it is the closest thing I've ever driven to a motorcycle... with a heater, and AC (sort of...) And the Toyota drive train was bulletproof.

Hoping the Slingshot makes the grade for "affordable Elise"

Yeah I hear ya! I think my motorcycles are going to get ridden a lot less once I get a Slingshot. I have too many track days and drag strips to hit once I get it :)

Some nice bikes, like the old Hondas. Heres something you do not see often enough though



Thats right, 98 Valkyrie. Supercharged, 25psi at full throttle, with water injection and nitros. Built 40 over with 8.5:1 JE coated pistons, crowler rods and so on. 110mph in the 1/8th mile with nothing but the throttle
