No, not a mid-life crisis. Ride my bikes alot. Nothin like dancin' the twisties on two wheels. Magic. The Sling is darned close. The wife loves it. Can't get her out of it. The bike for her? Yeah, at gun point. She never was at ease. She's like a little kid in the Sling. We are both 62 so beyond the mid-life thing I feel.
Mid-life crisis to me, is a 40/50 somethin' guy/gal with some $, no training, no license, and "Let's buy a $25,000 motorcycle", then proceed to wrap it around a tree. I'd venture a guess that alot of us come from the two wheeled part of the sport. The experience we have from this, I think, helps us enjoy our slings that much more. The Slingshot is the only vehicle with more then 2 wheels I REALLY get a rush out of. WHATA BLAST! Be safe!
