    I am calling BS on your narrow minded reasoning.    The trikes you allow with trailers have a much bigger footprint than Slingshots.  The trikes you allow without trailers don’t ride staggered.  By the way, Slingshots are built, classified, marketed and registered as motorcycles.  We have to comply with all the same motorcycle laws as other two and three wheel motorcycles.  It is time for the BOD to rethink their position on this issue,  especially with so many of us real combat veterans getting older.  THIS ISSUE IS NOT GOING AWAY!

    Hello Seawolf,

    I was curious about this, just for my sake.  However on a couple references I did review, one of those being Polaris’s website about License Requirements by state and the other showing registration and licensing by state.  Most states classify this as an Auto Cycle versus Motorcycle and require a standard license.  On the other hand some do classify as motorcycle, and require motorcycle registration/licensing.  I am sure these are updated daily but feel free to check them out, as I am sure your state may register as motorcycle but others may not.   I am neutral in the matter, just putting out some stuff I had seen.  Hope you get your topic resolved.

    In the state of Kansa Slingshots are registered as a car which they are. In Kansas now even

    Can Am and Spyder are not registered as a motorcycle. Here it has to be on two wheels or a

    trike to require a motorcycle license to operate.
