    Something that I have forgot to mention where we are fortunate indeed to have the best type of security there can be had, and money will not buy this system, it is having the good fortune of having good neighbors. Very little happens in this neighborhood that goes unnoticed! :thumbsup:


    Recently I have been riding to work in the dark, and returning home in the dark, where it is really dark underneath the top, so I have been contemplating in designing some sort of "dome" light.....................................................................


    Do you actually believe that you live somewhere that evil can't cross your threshold? Evil exists, whether you choose to be aware of it or not.

    My point exactly, is it not a sad situation where our society has degraded to this? Otherwise Justina and I choose to live our lives where fear does not dominate us, that is what I am saying.


    Do you lock your house? Do you lock your car? Those are security features. Cameras are a deterrent as well. God forbid someone gets in your home, weather you're home or not. Wouldn't you like to know who it was? It goes back to the old saying,... a picture is worth a thousand words

    Whoa, there, I didn't mean to offend anybody, I simply expressed my sincere dismay that folks have to live where they sincerely believe that these items are actually needed. I apologize if it was taken in any other way.


    I really feel so sorry for those that live where they believe that cameras, alarms and guns are actually needed to keep them safe. :(


    I thought that I would share a very funny side of all of this where the owners of the building where I work decided that they needed to install exterior cameras around the building. A few days later they found that all the cameras had been stolen and nothing else had been harmed and all they had was video of a couple of hooded fellows doing it! :thumbsup:


    Well, I just received this response from Polaris:

    Hi William,

    Our system suggests that the only outstanding bulletins that need to be completed are the ones in my previous email. Polaris did issue a bulletin in reference to the one you are asking about, however it only applies to certain 2015 and 2016 models. Polaris will notify you if you are affected. If you have any questions, please contact your preferred Polaris dealership for inspection and completion of the bulletins. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please let me know.

    Just adding a further explanation about the above email, where I have been attempting to find out why some 2015 SlingShots with the camera installed were subject to the recall and others were not, this was my fourth response, and so far all I could get, out of Polaris. I am still trying...............................


    Currently 34 degrees, thick fog and rain is supposed to start here in the next couple of hours. Justina, Athena and I are thinking of donning our rain gear and doing a lil coastal ride to check out the waves!
