Polaris Slingshot


This was spotted about two blocks from where we live. I've never seen it in our neighborhood before so maybe it is someone's new toy.

It is a Polaris Slingshot.  It is not a car.  It is a three-wheeled motorcycle.  The slingshot comes in a variety of colors and models and prices start about $20,000.

I want one.

Very cool! Though I'd prefer one in black.

Lowell, you need one of these exciting machines. Florida has the perfect climate for it, so you can ride it year around. But wear a helmet with a face shield so you can see to drive in the rain. Oh yes, that's called "liquid sunshine" in Florida.

I am not a fan of motorcycles but I really like this! I saw a couple of these just the other day in Montreal, it was the first time I had seen a 3 wheeled motorcycle! :)

Would be fun to zip around in one of those! Is it noisy?

Snazzier than a golf cart. I'll give it that!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog this morning! A year or so ago I spotted one of these in a parking lot and talked to its owner (also put it on my blog). It is a powerful machine and it certainly is attention getting. Other than that one time, I have never seen another one on the road. You and Gracie can race these around town, if you'd like, but I think I'll still stand firm for a pink Vespa or one of your city's carts that zip around your city. Vespa is my first choice!!

The word "wicked" came to mind when I saw this.

Have you asked Lois Anne about that?

Nunca ví una igual Jacob. En ella se tiene que ir más seguro que en mi vespa ;)
Un abrazo.

What a colourful, nice and fun TOY.
I agree with you, that would have been perfect here too.
I have not seen it here..... but if I do, I will take a photo too.
