If one front tire hits a pot hole and the other is firmly planted on asphalt, is it a problem? I never rode any 3 wheel machine, so I don't know.That's one fugly machine and doesn't interest me in the least. Can you imagine trying to avoid pot holes in the twisties on that thing?
I couldn't tell ya, but I would guess you're much more likely to hit that pot hole when you have 2 wheels up front and the rear tracks directly between them.If one front tire hits a pot hole and the other is firmly planted on asphalt, is it a problem?

Yamaha designed a pickup truck for motorcycle ownersYamaha has too much money if they're wasting it on junk like the Niken. An exercise in engineering with nothing worthwhile in benefits or possible sales.
Bob, I agree with your sentiment. I would like to state though, for the record, there is nothing motorcycle-like about the Slingshot. My wife has one, and while it is certainly a blast to drive, it is a car. I don't know how Polaris got the govt to classify it as a motorcycle and I'm not mad, but saying it is, doesn't make it so.We are all getting older and will all get to the point where we'll have to question our ability to safely operate on 2 wheels. Do we walk away or look at Trikes, Slingshots, Cam Ams, Tilting Motor Works set up or this new fangled contraption.
I like the idea of still leaning into turns. Hopefully these new concepts and mfg feedback of them will eventually yield to the development of something attractive on the market in the next decade.
