Originally I planned only local cruising near home in FL. But I make 2 or 3 trips a year to my off grid shack in CO and decided WTF, I've got the time to wait if the weather is bad during the trip, I'll take the SS on at least one of them.

You should probably define "long" trips....

I will take mine one 100-200 mile trips frequently. For a sport bike rider, that would be considered a long trip! :walkingdead:

Every year we take a couple of extended trips to different locations on the bikes. Next summer the SS will be going, can't wait.

I plan on taking mine on a 600 one way trip in the spring. I'll be curious to see how the tire lasts. I also do regular 1000 mile weekends to Arkansas on the bike and would love to do the same in the SS.

plan on driving one way all day, stay some place that night, and return home the next day, or not

I'm thinking about driving a couple of hours to meet a fellow SS owner for a quick cup of coffee then head back home. Each trip will be in a different direction, I need to show my wife I do have "social skills"....:cool:

I plan long distance cruising. But I am masochistic. I once road a 50cc Honda all the way around Lake Huron at 30-35 mph. Brutal!

The Slingshot begs to be taken on long trips. I plan on taking it to Palm Springs from Phoenix within the first month, Then maybe Vegas.
I might pass your way on the way to Vegas, and this is likely to happen sooner rather than later as my son in Vegas earned a motorcycle endorsement just so he can pilot the slingshot.

Still hoping I will get it in time to drive it to my winter storage location - about 280 miles one way. Not going to drive it but will trailer if the roads have already been salted once.

We plan weekend trips with ours - probably no more than two nights. Trips to the Texas Hill Country or the Ozarks are a good day's drive or ride. Plus, plenty of breakfast and lunch RTEs.

I plan on using it as I do my bikes, day trips 100-300 miles, one or two night trips 300-1000 miles, long trips 1,000-7,000+ miles.

Luggage space and seat comfort will determine my travel distance.
I can go on the bike for 10 days out of a backpack, so luggage isnt a big deal. By myself, there will be plenty of storage on the passenger side. If the wife goes with, we'll have to figure it out.

Yeah the wife's already looking forward to taking the SS out for a ride. Plus she's well versus in driving a stick shift. Will actually be fun watching her the first time behind the wheel.
Plan on alot of fun rides.
