I put a deposit on a red slingshot yesterday. I have been riding over 50 years. My curent ride is a Victory Vision. I love it, it is the best bike I have ever owned, and I haver owned a few.. But I am getting old, and I am starting to feel the weight of the Vision. I am going to trade it in on the slingshot before the Victory gets too heavy for me. The other reason I want a Slingshot is because my wife is getting old also and is finding it more and more difficult to climb on the Vision. I want her to go with me, so a Slingshot is fixing too problems for me. Besides, she can pilot it any time she wants to or needs to.
