Hello Slingshot Forum Members!!!!

My name is Chris Ball, I currently serve as CEO of FixMyToys.com and Vice President of Operations for our parent OEM Polaris dealerships (Ball Equipment) with locations in Sandusky and Richmond, Michigan. First let me say thank you for allowing me to be a sponsor of your community. We have been a sponsor of several other Polaris related forums for many years including rzrforums.net, prcforum.com, polarisatvforum.com, ect... If you own any other piece of Polaris equipment, or are simply just a part of any other online community then you know how valuable it is to have a constant flow of information and resources available from hundreds and thousands of others that share the same passion as you do.

Just like all of you, we share that passion for the industries we serve. I'm very proud to be the 4th generation in our family owned business and very honored to say that 2014 marks our 70th year as a company. Very few people can tell that kind of story, and I do not take this great responsibility lightly.

Initially we were a little skeptical of Slingshot and how it would fit into our business... when I was first approached by Polaris about it, we had no idea what they were, or how much they would cost and would not have that information until the dealer show. So we initially declined the offer from Polaris to become a dealer at our Richmond Location.... that is until I got to the dealer summit and sat in one.



Needless to say 30 seconds later I was ready to sign the paperwork...

As a sponsor we take pride in not only having the privilege of supporting the community with our advertising dollars, but the duty of being a direct point of contact for information and problem solving with your local dealer is unable or unwilling to help. It could be a technical problem, warranty question, or someone just looking for a fair deal on parts and accessories... whatever the reason this is what we do and in turn the awesome support of members allows us to continue to wake up every morning and continue doing it.

So whatever the need please feel free to contact us with any questions at all. If its as small as an oil filter or as big as you and a few friends looking for a great deal on a package for a couple of brand new 2015 Slingshot-SL's. We specialize in anything that will be beneficial for you as the customer and us as the business... Where ever you may be from, I promise that we will do our best to earn your business and give you a reason to make the drive or wait an extra few day for shipping.

Thank you guys again and I look forward to supporting and growing this community for a long time to come.

Welcome Chris. Thank you for your support of our community as well. I look forward to seeing how your company will be supporting the Slingshot (beyond sales of course) once they hit the ground - hopefully soon!

Your welcome... we are just as excited as everyone else to get these things on the dealership floor in October. Our showrrom displays including accessory display racks, floor mats, signs, and I-Pod Kiosk are supposed to be arriving very soon. Service and Sales staff have already started the training modules and I think we pre-sold our first one this week... exciting stuff!!!

No worries Mike, Jeff is a great guy and we dealer transfer units with K&W often. It's part my fault for being gun shy with taking the line, Polaris is finally just now adding us to the slingshot dealer locater. Thanks for your past business and be sure to let us know when its time for that blower, we're hoping its at least a few months before it snows lol.

You have a true "Drool Worthy" showroom. I am glad there is no one like you near me, I would be in HUGE trouble! THANKS for sponsoring us - it is appreciated! I will certainly go to sponsors for my parts....
