Another reason my local dealer does not have room to stock parts for my Vic.

I heard about this thing from one of the Polaris test riders this last February down in Arizona. From what I understand it's a beast and is targeted at the Can Am Spider.

I think it's targeted at people who want a sports car motorcycle experience

You've got admit those Can Am's have become VERY popular. I personally don't understand why anybody would want to ride a trike at high speed in reverse but to ea h his own as my mom used to say.

My dad bought one just because he wanted to ride with me whenever and not have to worry about having to learn a new skill at 60

I dunno. The Can Am looks like a good alternative for someone learning to ride at a late age or maybe has balance issues or leg problems. I would consider it. I loved my Triumph Spitfire sports car when I was a teen. The Slingshot would be a fun toy or an alternative to riding two wheels if I couldn't ride a regular bike anymore.

The spiders have a whole bunch of electronics to keep the trike stable. I hope Polaris has done the homework on this or it's going to be short lived....

I would have liked to see Polaris refine what they market now instead of wasting a huge amount of money developing this thing.....

And can they bring it to market at a price anyone can afford ......
