    Not saying he did or didn’t but, how could he lay down strapped in with a harness and helmet and Han device? Don't their harnesses come up between your legs and over your shoulders? The safest place to be in that type of crash is strapped into the cage. If he loosened everything to lay down he committed suicide. There have been drivers violently roll vehicles wheels to wheels and end for end many times and walk away because they were strapped in. That just sounds very odd to me.


    That said, I went off the road on my bike heading toward trees and I closed my eyes and let go of the handlebars to cover my head with a helmet on. Could I have steered the bike around them? I think I was already out of control when I let go. I survived.....might have been a very good decision. I woke up at the bottom of a big tree. My head was inches from the trunk....I must have took a pretty big hit because I blacked out...don’t know if I hit the tree and bounced back or stopped short. My face hit something because I had a bloody nose. No full face or chin guard. Maybe my arms hit my nose. It’s funny what you think about in those few life or death seconds....I just remember saying cover your head and hope it works. That could have been my last thoughts...being able to walk away even banged up is a good thing.

    The ''Lack'' of him using the Han.......Was a contributing reason he broke his neck....

    Not to mention that he used a seat out of a van and not a racing seat.

    My wife and I are so ignorant!!! Went to lunch in the Slingshot. We looked at the weather radar and it was raining in Terre Haute about 90 miles west. (For those of you who go to the Indy 500, "It is raining in Terre Haute" is some of the most iconic phrases spoken at the track. For the rest of you, your just saying - What is this idiot talking about!!!) Anyway, ate lunch ran an errand with no rain. We got close to our house and thought, we can ride just a short distance farther. We hadn't got anymore than about a 1/4 mile past the road to our house when the temp does one of those 15° drops in about a minute. For those of you who know Midwest thunderstorms, you know what that means!!! Torrential downpour and small hail on top of that!!! We got soaked and beat to death!!! The sad thing about it is that we both know better!!!

    I've never been to the Indy 500. It's about 70 miles from my home (been around the track on a Yamaha, Harley, 1967 GTO clone, and a 1970 numbers matching GTO). But I know the weather, and can seriously appreciate what you say! Glad you were not far from home, and yes.... you knew better!

    One of the other famous phrases at the Indy 500 is "And Mario is slowing on the backstretch". I have way to much time on my hands and a very feeble mind!!!

    New addition to our "pack". Stella was a rescue from a bad situation where over 60 dogs and 80 cats were taken from a very, very nasty living environment. Thankfully she was only about 2 weeks old when the county stepped in. Her only medical issues were fairly severe case of worms and fleas. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for alot of the other poor animals!!! Mom and her 4 other brothers/ sisters were nursed back to health by our vet. She is a a Bella Dachshund. She is also hell on earth!!! Never seen a puppy with as much energy as she has!!! Thankfully our other 2 dogs and cat have welcomed her to the group. We plan on giving her a happy and healthy home!! She may even like to ride in the Slingshot like one of our other rescues does!!! Louie goes nuts when he sees the seatbelt harness as he he knows he is doing a little Slingshot riding with Dad!!!

    Thank you!!! I feel that I am a little bit of a tough guy, but cried like a baby when I saw pictures of how these animals were treated!!! In my opinion, there is no bigger sin against God than people who abuse kids or animals!!! Totally dependent on us, but unfortunately part of our society is beyond ignorant!!! Wanted to share a picture of my boy Louie. A buddy of mine gave me dog goggles for Louie when he is riding on the Slingshot as a joke. Louie loves them!!! I think he thinks it makes him look cool!!! Besides my lovely wife, could never ask for a better companion!!!

    The unpredictable Indiana weather is taking a nice turn for a rare winter ride in the Sling. On Wednesday it was -12° air temp with about a -40° wind chill in Indy!!! That is very painful on any exposed skin. Sunday they are predicting 60° and partly sunny!!! Will feel like summer when my better half take a ride. You don't like the weather in the midwest, just wait about 12 hours!!!

    Not a mod, but wanted to share the beautiful Slingshot emblem that I received by UPS from SlingLow today. Just like the luggage racks he builds, this thing is top shelf, high quality, metal/ finished goods!!!! Not a burr, nick, scratch, or run on the paint!!! Have a great place to hang this in my garage to adorn my beloved mistress!!! Said this before, but the amount of ingenuity, sharing, respectfulness, & just all around top shelf people who are on this forum just amazes me!!! And this isn't a paid endorsement, but the the "shelves" he builds for behind the roll hoops can carry anything and everything!!! I bought a pack of bungie cords I carry to strap things down. Have had everything on there from Igloo coolers loaded down with "adult beverages" & ice, framed picture, and even a 22" tire/wheel when I had to haul to get fixed after we made a trail error out Turkey hunting in my buddies Jeep (long and involved story here), & everything in between!!! Thank you SlingLow for who and what you are and do!!!

    I must say I have been very tardy about putting this mod on here. Bought the @Irobbi windscreen. The 3rd thing I have bought from R-Shot. All of it comes shipped like you might ship fragile crystal through backroad country on a washboard road!!! More than a "little bit" of detail in what is designed (Okay, one hell of alot!!!) The windscreen looks fantastic!!! Does exactly as advertised!!! Takes care of that airflow that curls around from the rear wheel!!! Conversations are easier, stereo is louder, and looks very unique!!! Sir, you are a design master!!! Thanks in advance!!!

    just got an impressive batch of new product today. Luggage racks, rear plates, front grills and passenger kick plates with both my previous logo and the biohazard symbol. My nephew Shawn and his buddy Terry, aka Teabag on the racing circuit, made me this as a bonus. Y'all know you want one. Sorry, for once mine is going to be the biggest!



    The Slingshot logo sign is great!!!! I have to have one of those for the garage!!! How can that happen????
