“Looks Like the Batmobile”


I write motorcycle reviews for USA Today on occasion. I’ll get a vehicle from a manufacturer, ride it for a while, take lots of photos, and write up my impressions.

One of the latest was the Polaris Slingshot, which looks like a three-wheeled sports car, but is officially classified as a three-wheeled motorcycle — two wheels in the front, one in the back.

All motorcycles are fun to ride, but the Slingshot was different. It attracted unprecedented amounts of attention everywhere we went. Strangers would cross the street to ask questions.

The most common comment we got was “This looks like the Batmobile.” Lots of truth in that.
