You're my HEEEROOO!! Sounds like a little jealousy to me...
I didn't want to jump into this post, but have been sucked in now. Just to comment I agree with the previous post, and must say that jealousy will get you know where.
Ok Some of us guys do buy expensive sleds, and we do mod the heck out oh them, but that's not to say that we haven't made huge sacrifices to get there, as well some of us are not rich guys who do that, we are just so passionate about sledding that we put all our cash into it.
This year I have bought my first brand new sled, it a more modest Summit 600 Sport, it's no fancy etec 800, but then again I am riding closer to sea level (in Tundra LT territory) so I should be ok with the power that I have. Anyways not to get off track too much here but the point I am trying to make is that I don't like the term parking lot hero's it sounds offensive, and I agree that it does make you sound arrogant.
You should keep in mind that everyone lives in different situations and whether you get to ride for 10 minutes a year or everyday, what's important in this website is that we all have a huge passion for riding. I use this website to learn from other riders with different experiences, as well to make contributions where I can. I'm not coming hear to make fun of guys who have more money than me, nor to put down the riders who have inferior sleds. Thus like my dad always said, if you have nothing good to say, then save your energy until you do.
