Had an electrician in the garage today so had to move the sleds around a bit. It's only May and looking at them I wanted to ride again !


Come on snow !

A while back we convinced one of our buddies to get into sledding. He wound up buying an F3 700 off of another buddy.

He spent one weekend on that thing and said: "I've had speed boats, dirt bikes, ATV's, jet skis, you name it. I've NEVER felt a rush like I did on that snowmobile!"

Yup. I had the Defender out last night for a few minutes. It's fun but it's not snowmobile fun.

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level. But darn, the 900T is Bad to The Bone! 

No Need to Freeze-buy a set of these! http://www.coldguards.com/

That could be me.  I was not introduced to sledding until my late 30's.  This was after 30 years on a dirt bike, 20 on a street bike, 20 on go karts and a few fast street cars.  Having the experience on all of them, I continue to say today that if I had to give it all up but one..sled stays.

^^^ Same here. Just sold my street bike. No more 4 wheeler either but a new 2022 900r coming. Nothing feels like a sled. Still have my Mustang, so I would have to say I cannot give up 2 of my toys. :D
