What did you drive or ride before you got a Slingshot?

  • We are all Slingshot owners and we enjoy our Slings very much. I know I do. But here's a thread. What did you drive or ride before you got your Slingshot? My last two wheeler was an '03 Electraglide but this is the honest truth not a joke. Here is my ride at the time of my Slingshot purchase. What was yours? Pictures encouraged.

    My girlfriend loves SS more than me but can't drive a manual laugh-squaredlaugh-squared Lucky me!!!

  • My last two-wheel ride was a sweet 2000 Honda Valkyrie. Lots of fun attaching dam near everything chrome that was out there (think that was the beginning of my "Mods" disease). Of course I was already predisposed to stick with Red & Black when I bought my SL :D


  • I totaled my favorite bike, a 2007 Suzuki SV650 naked bike in the Spring of 2015, a few months before Texas finally allowed the Slingshot to be sold and I finally got my Slingshot. I really liked that bike. Bought it at the end of January 2010 with 4848 miles on it and when I wrecked it had just under 60K miles on it. Fantastic bike!

  • I didn't start riding until I was 50 and 1st bilk was a used1982 Honda Silver Wing, and than several Gold Wings doing about 250,000 miles on the Wings in 20 years. 3.5 years in the Slingshot -- 72,000 miles. Getting younger with every mile. My daily driver

    Gotta do a little work for the gas money.

    In my opinion that is the best bike ever bilt. I wish I could find a reasonable low mileage one. I would get another one.

  • My last ride was a ‘12 Goldwing that I bought in ‘15 from a girl in New York. Flew up, took delivery and rode home to East Tennessee.



    Before that was a Kawasaki VN2000Lt.



    Loved both scoots.

    So...


    You had a pretty good idea what riding around on three inflated tires was gonna be like.


    Just kidding,


    Nice car!

    You know what they say in the car world. "When the top goes down, the prices go up". :thumbsup:
