I was talking to someone about this just the other day. I have a class a cdl with almost every endorsement you can get, but I need my motorcycle endorsement. Hopefully the slingshot will change that.

I live in North Carolina and yes you have to a Motorcycle License. With restrictions, you can get a Learners Permit. There is also a Motorcycle Skills test for Trikes here too. I know a couple of riders that has a Boss Trike and a Can-Am Spyder. My neighbor just got a renewal and he had to take the skills test for his Harley Trike.

Also in North Carolina, all the time Helmet usage is required for All Riders. In many areas, this Helmet Law is in effect for Mopeds/Scooters and Bicycles.

Thanks for sharing Larry! I updated the first post.
I'm not sure where this subject belongs but we'll start here.
In doing a Google Search to find out if the Slingshot had cigarette lighter power plugs I came across this "Customs" document. http://rulings.cbp.gov/detail.asp?ru=n250313&ac=pr I then did a search for Customs rulings and entered the ruling number and it came back to this document. The document provides a very detail description of the Slingshot but I also noticed who ever they were applying to said they didn't think it should be classified as a Motorcycle. I just found it interesting.

wow, that's very interesting.. good find.

In your request, you suggested classification of the Slingshot as a motorcycle of 8711 because you claim that the vehicle lacks multiple motor car characteristics, such as a roof, side doors, side windows and rear windows, air conditioning, a cigarette lighter, and ashtrays. We disagree.

Awesome job @4Nines!!
Just a note, Minnesota has a three wheel only restriction if you take your motorcycle skills test with a 3 wheel vehicle.

Minnesota DPS:
" Note: If you test on a three-wheeled motorcycle, you will be restricted to operating three-wheelers only.

Good info...The Oregon section is slightly misleading. The post reads that you can use the Slingshot to take your test. That's only true if you're 61 or older. Otherwise, you're required to take Team Oregon's MSF course in order to obtain an endorsement. You cannot bring your own bike, nor will they have Slingshots in the course. Moreover, On Jan 1st 2015 everyone regardless of age will be required to take the course regardless of age. Hence in a few months, the information will go from misleading to inaccurate...... Just FYI.

Indiana has not decided either, so they can not be sold in Indiana, therefore, no deliveries to Indiana dealers per a call from our dealer today.
You certain about that one? What does your DMV say?

You certain about that one? What does your DMV say?
Our dealer even offered us our deposit back since they can't deliver, but we told him we wanted to stay on the list. Do you know how we could speed up the process? It gets cold and snowy in Indiana pretty soon. We had hoped for at least a short time to enjoy it. Our dealer sounded discouraged.
