    I am currently riding a 2013 Gold Wing and I am thinking about trading it in on a Slingshot. my question is can I ride the Slingshot comfortable for a 600-700 mile trip?

    I had a Goldwing.The Slingshot is more comfortable.I led the Slingshots across America last year.Did 7000 miles.
    I also have ridden 800 miles in a day.Very comfortable.

      What kinda of mileage are you getting,, the dealer told me 38-40 but I read on a review somewhere around 20-24,, that is a big difference..

    i am a witness to ivor logging many many miles in a day - and he never-ever complained - he even got caught in the rain a few times

      I just got back from a 4,000 mile in 10 day road trip with the slingshot. Yes, it is very comfortable and works great on long trips. I was pulling the same trailer I used behind my 02 Goldwing and it was an awesome trip. But when I got back I found a sweet deal on a 13 wing with 6,000 miles on the clock and bought it but I am keeping the Slingshot. I sold my 02 wing after having both hips replaced and bought the slingshot Now I feel strong again and can handle the weight of the wing again. The wife rides her own bike ( Honda VFR1200 ) so the wing will be for day rides with her. The Slingshot is my touring bike and Saturday night hot rod.
