So, Friday I bought a 16 SL in ND - I live in Thornton CO... Friday afternoon I flew up there then Saturday morning I drove home.:cool:
Couldn’t get the driver side rear hood latch to stay latched... fluttered the whole way, the 30mph quartering and head wind in ND and SD didn’t help that situation...
After a few reroutes due to construction I ended up in having to drive thru 3” - 12” :wideyed: of water for about a quarter mile on hwy 83 in NE!
Ended up driving about 980 miles, would have been a quicker drive but the gas stops slowed progress. Interstate driving into the wind at 85 - 90ish ;) mph dropped gas mileage to 18s, got over 28 on the secondary (65mph) roads though!
Learned that the stock windshield is too low for me, the stereo is worthless at speed with a helmet on, and LOTS of heat gets in the cockpit.:hungover: So mods will commence, already got a mo-door garage door opener.

My hood on my SS did the Samething on my way to Maggie Valley N.C. Scared the sh!! Out of us. Got home and the dealer readjusted it. Easy fix. The radios in all the SS are a POS. I put a canvas top on mine. What a big difference. Welcome to the Slingshot world . Ps I'm from northeast Indiana .

I adjusted it last night and it was fine on my drive to work this morning, I just moved the whole latch up (only about 1/8”) but it worked. It latched right away when I closed the hood.
