I'm Paul from the United Kingdom.
AKA. "UK_Paul" (But you all figured that one out already).
I will try and run this thread showing you all, the modifications that I make to the SlingShot and as I'm sitting the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, to most of the people that will see this, I'll also try and give you all a general view of what's going on and places that the SlingShot goes to.
I purchased a SlingShot in November 2016, after first testing one out the previous June, at a motorcycle festival in Ireland. I have been riding a Polaris Victory Vegas motorcycle since 2009 (one of the first few hundred in Europe) and have found it to be a tremendous product, great fun and have had some wonderful times and tours with it over the years.
I was fortunate enough to have a friend, who also rode a Victory, in the US and got to see a SlingShot while it was still in testing, at a test track 2014. We met shortly after this and the discussions started......
I wanted one.
Some years later this came to fruition and I'm now a very happy owner of my own SlingShot, that's not excluding my wife Elaine, who is as keen on it as I am. (Perhaps, more of that in later postings).
Where did it come from and where is it now?
To give you an idear of the places that I'm taling about I have attached a map.
The map below shows the UK. The vehicle originally came from a dealer close to Dungannon, Northern Ireland. (See map insert).
It was then shipped over from Belfast to Stanraer, in Scotland and collected, by myself, near Ross-on-Why, England, very near Wales, less than 5 miles. (That's just above the "S" of Gloucester on the map below).
I then took it for a little spin, down the road and over the boarder.
We only have 5 distributors for SlingShots, in Britain, so it is difficult to get hold of them. At the time of this posting, only 14 are registered in Britain, and I believe that my one is either #5 or #6 on the road, with all the others either garaged, dealer vehicles or Polaris run demo vehicles.
So it's a pretty rare thing to see one on the road.
More information will follow, shortly........
