Attention Vendors. Please email any instruction manuals you may have for your products. They will be added to the FILEBASE tab for members to access.

    I think i would take Trump over Trudeau. I just cant believe we have to deal with this idiot still. The majority of seats he won are in large cities where the thousands of refugees that he brought into our country have setup and settled so of course they will vote for him as he gave them free housing and benefits.

    Check out some of the comedy of Steve Hofstetter. He actually does a Q&A portion of his act and there is actually a heckler that asks about Trump vs Trudeau...I think you will get a kick out of it.

    Just my take on things as far as Vendors. I think it's hard to get some vendors to some shows. It's almost like there isn't enough money to go around. You start adding in multiple LED people, some sound guys, a couple of wheel reps, and a couple of go fast parts...and you get a bunch of vendors that make so little that it doesn't benefit them to come back to the next show. If all the shows were like Maggie Valley...I think it would be a different story.

    At a show like SSITR, we get roughly 70-90 slingshots there and of that 50% of them usually have everything they want already installed...leaving about 45 Slingshots to spend money on on their factor in the fact that everyone feels that slingshot parts are overpriced, the desire to purchase anything is low. Especially coupled with Hotel, Gas, Food, and touristy adventures...most people just don't want to spend the money. I can't see how any vendor would want to go out of their way to travel when the possibility of losing money is very high. Like I said...MV is a completely different story.

    Year in and Year out, SSITR is always a crap shoot if it will continue. Because hauling everything from event to event gets expensive. Paying employees to work on slingshots...expensive. Hotels...expensive. Feeding multiple employees...expensive. I personally am appreciative that Scott and Ivor have worked it out to even put on a show here. It's not easy. It's time consuming. And they are doing it for 5 SSR shows and I think something like 9 Sling-a-rama shows. We've been lucky to see a couple new shows come up in the last 2 years and it's awesome...shows growth... but if Vendors aren't making money...I can't imagine they will show up at those either.

    if thats really what he thinks then why isnt he giving his billions to the state to help with it homeless problem or some other good cause - - he says this crap, but then he just goes on making and keeping more of his billions.

    Now - dont get me wrong - I think its great he can make billions, wish I could, but dont expect me to listen to you espousing that no one should be making billions when thats exactly what you are doing - - acting like you are anti capitalism when capitalism is making you richer every single day is just a bit much for me

    Unfortunately...he wouldn't even be noticed for a guy having a good idea if he didn't have that level of money. I don't think there is anything wrong with making millions or billions...I actually think everyone should be chasing that...but I can't buy in to the fact that he actually wants to make a difference. He has the money to literally make a difference and he's chosen not to. Does he do charitable acts? Yes. But those charitable acts aren't putting a dent in to the issues that are there. This is my biggest issue with government controlling my money...there is no oversight, there is over spending, and no one knows where the money goes. Government agencies have lost over $10+trillion over the last 25 years and no one knows where it went. That is a huge issue.

    "Here's the thing: I'm friends with George Bush. In fact, I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have," DeGeneres continued. "We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that that's okay that we're all different... but just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean that I'm not going to be friends with them."

    This is the biggest issue we have as a nation right now. We have all been divided in to believing that the D or R means more than the individuals. From a personal standpoint...I have a hard time believing that a bunch of millionaires that have been telling people what to believe and how to live their lives can really relate to me or what I have done in my life. This goes for athletes, movie stars, and especially those in a position of government. They aren't in it for can they be? They can't relate to the american people...they have made sure to divide us all so we stop looking at them.

    The biggest issue is the price. From what I have heard it rides nice, doesn't have the usual Harley issues, and is actually overall very nice. But when you compare it to electric motorcycles that are already out or on the horizon, it falls really short on distance and price. Currently I have been looking at the Zero SR/F and with the bigger battery package it has a 200 mile range (more than the Harley), Better HP and Torque than the Harley, Better Top speed of the Harley and costs about $10K less than the Harley.

    Back in my high school days I lusted for a Morgan +8. Totally retro 30's looking with a V8 and performance specs that were in the same league as a Corvette - - I havent checked latly,, but I believe they still make them


    They still make them...some slight changes...still the wood frame. The Morgan Aero8 has always been my favorite.

    I decided to go with the Polaris Slingshade to replace my MeanSling Top. First of all it is in no way better, in fact worse, than the meanSling. With that said I do like it. Much different. Has way less airflow so will be a bit hotter (time for those fans!!!), but overall I like it. Shocked that Polaris charges what they do for such poor craftsmanship. I have seen better. Way better.

    It completes the quad look. Now to do the rear fin delete. Oh boy!!!

    Had I not been in Vancouver when Pete called me to let me know he wasn't getting it...I would have picked it up...assuming this was the one from Kansas?
