Default Polaris slingshot

I don't know of any of you have heard about this but I think, assuming the hype is real I can't wait for this thing. Here are the teasers and website of you're interested. The release date for the specs and such is July 27th.

Looks like you'd have a close relationship with road kill, sitting that low.

Can Ams bore me to tears.
This thing had me on the verge of a coma after the first 15 second video. There is something goofier than a Can Am, first runner up to a Can Am.
Then, and I'm purely projecting here, anything on wheels with an electric motor is as exciting to me as a church social unless it disarms bombs or seeks out radioactive isotopes.
If, no strike that, when they put an electric motor in this abomination I will need a constant intravenous catheter of bathtub meth to keep from dropping dead of terminal boredom.

Did I mention... Yaaawn.

Default Slingshot

Polaris just may have a real hit with the slingshot. I was at a local Bike Night and talked with the mechanic for my Dealer's service department. He told me they have pre sold four already and have yet to get any in. Asked when I can get a demo ride, he just smiled and said he get to ride the first one.

Black '11 XC, Vance & Hines Hi-Flow muflers,
Lloydz Air Filter & ATS (+4)
Dobeck AFR+ (Gen4)
