    A little late, the Kentuckiana Slingshot Posse won the "Fast Rabbit" award in the 2018 Louisville Easter Parade. We had 9 Slingshots in our group participate.
    Everyone had a blast. FYI, KYJoe57 is wearing the biker vest. Do not look for the pink bunny in Maggie Valley!!!!!!

    Why not?

    Can you please tell Larry there are 1700 people lost without him. A few cameo appearances would be great for moral...
    He has no idea just how many great opportunities he has missed!

    Congratulations on your new ride
    Travel Safe

    I will. He is involved in some other projects that is eating up his time.

    :| I’m heading to SS in the Texas hill country that day . You gonna stop by Kerrville on your way home ?

    Probably won’t get to KTown until Sunday. Going to White Sands first then Marfa/Alpine on Friday. Del Rio on Saturday then to San Antonio area on Sunday.

    We’ll spend a couple of days in the Hill Country apologizing to everyone for your behavior. . You guys, and gals, have fun and ride safe.

    Just placed an order for a set of those MeanSling bags!! Hoping they get here before we rollout on Friday!! :D

    They are pretty awesome. Glad I got them. With these and the bags behind the seat we should have plenty of luggage space.

    For light duty an oil less pancake would probably do just fine. I’ve got a little PorterCabel 2 gal pancake that works just fine. Got it and two Brad nailers for less than 150 a couple of years ago.

    @pricejh61 When you getting to Cruces? Maybe I can ride up there to meet you and smack @Tripod around a bit :thumbup:

    We’re flying in on the 19th. Larry is going to pick us up at about 1:30/2:00 and take us up. I want to take Nancy to La Posta for dinner. It’s a family tradition...

    Would love to meet you while we’re there.

    We start traveling home on the 20th.

    It never caused any fault lights to flash and speedo error is within range. You can't get too focused on that. If interested, read what I have to say about that below

    Ok, what size tire can you run and keep the speedometer accurate? Who's saying it's accurate now? When is it accurate? Basic math leads to the following explanation.

    Let's say you have the factory rear tire on your slingshot and it comes from the factory with 9/32" of tread. Ok so far? So you wear it down to the tread bars which show up at 2/32" remaining tread. So how much tread have you worn off the tire? If you said 7/32" you're only partially correct. Your speedometer is calibrated by the effective gear ratio as well as the overall tire height. So when your tire is worn out and at the 2/32" remaining tread, and you put it side by side by the identical new tire, the difference in height is 14/32" (or almost 1/2" difference). So your speedometer on your slingshot is accurate sometime during the life of your tire. Replacing it with something close, makes it also accurate, but at a different point in time. A taller tire will be accurate when it wears down some, a shorter tire is more accurate when it's new. Just food for thought. I always run with my GPS on and it displays current speeds and the difference from that and the speedometer varies from identical to a mile or two off depending on speed. It's one of those factors to consider when buying the tire, but as long as you're close, don't worry too much about it. Two miles per hour off isn;t going to save you from that speeding ticket. Ask Kenny_H about how that works out in GA

    Good explanation. From what I am seeing, the speedo on SSs are relatively accurate. I got use to having the spedo on my Kawis and Wing read 5 to 10 high. Good reason to have a GPS on board.

    I’d go with the HF motor. As long as your compressor and tank are in good shape, just replace the motor. New compressors of that size/capacity are pretty expensive. Probably in the $1k range.

    @edwardaneal Thanks for posing this, and then following up with what you added and where you got them.

    It is to each their own... no one has to do it my way or they are wrong.

    I pulled my factory seatbelt connector out, put in the harness bars and 4 point harness in. I would have left the factory in, but couldn't get them to mount simultaneously . Some days I wish I hadn't put them because the harness is not as easy to use and I can't figure out how to get it out of the way so I can go without it. Other days, I'm glad they are there as the g-force going around the corner threatens to toss me out! I see the point of the lap belt only for ease of use. If I wanted safe, I'd have bought a Toyota Camry.

    One way would be to go with a 5 point harness with a duck bill latch. Leave out the submarine strap. If you don’t want the shoulder straps just put them behind the seat and latch the lap belt. Hard charging? Pull the shoulder harness out from behind the seat back, latch up and go racing. Use to do it all the time in my ‘66 Midget. Only used the harness for gymkhanas.

    Ghost Ryder and I are taking one of our other "money pits" to Valdosta GA this weekend for a little R&R. We'll be there Friday through Sunday if anyone wants to come by and hang out with us. Keep us in your prayers for safe travels and wish us luck in the competition. Here are a few pic's that we took last fall at Valdosta.

    Sweet. Hang on tight and suit up. It’s gonna be cold this weekend.

    I am learning that my hobbies/money pits are not quite the same as everyone else here. I also realize that I am in a completely different income bracket as some after seeing this thread lol.

    I confess, we have caviar tastes on a potato chip budget. But, we can make nickels and dimes go a long way.
