Hey HotFlash,

Now that I've seen you posted:

Hope all has been well
And
You gonna divulge some slingshot pics ¿?
:cheers:
thanks for noticing all good, just hit the wall on posting for awhile. been riding the Slingshot a lot you know its the new toy. the Ural gets a workout only once a week now, but that will change as soon as the newness wears off the slingshot. as to pictures some of us old geezers haven't figured out how to do that, maybe I can find a grand kid to show me how someday. PS I still pop in at least once a day to see how things are going will comment where I can help. :D

Vanderhall price about the same as H-D Livewire. That would be a no brainer for me, Vanderhall looks like a lot more fun.

I like the look of the slingshot better than the Vanderhall,but the T-Rex is the craziest of the bunch to me. the slingshot has the 2.4l gm Ecotech engine with 175 hp and 175 ft pounds of torque. very quick and handles like a formula one car, at least to me. :cheers:

I drove the Ryker at a free threewheeler class in PA... It is stupid fast and I immediately was doing stupid things on it. It's stupid fun! I know, i used "stupid" too many times, but this thing brought out the teenager in me. For 10k new, it's not the most expensive toy out there with loads of fun. It is NOT a motorcycle by ANY means.

And that's 10K for the 900cc.
Get a 600cc for $8500.

Rich, i have to say that 600cc quickly proved to be a little docile.

Yesterday I test rode the Ryker 900cc on freeway and some dirt lot. Stupid fun is accurate. Basically a $10k Toy. Nothing the matter with that. :thumbsup:
