I have a few pet-peeves in life. cluttered work areas,dog hair on my floor and dusty furniture. the most comical being the parking lot superstars on sleds. i have seen people blow their motors in parking lots (jeez,its -20,lets start the sled and hammer it around the lot!). I have seen sled to sled wrecks,sled to car,sled to tree and just plain stupid stuff. what have you guys seen or been apart of? lets not forget the one knee on the seat with no helmet guys (sorry if you are my customers).

I personally like the flatland freestyle. My favorite is the heelclicker to superman combination.

One of my friends is like that, he pulls the rope and bars the throttle in one swift motion. He's the one always doing donuts or jumping snow banks while we're putting our gear on and letting our sleds warm up. We usually get some good laughs out of him when he dumps the sled doing donuts or falls of jumping the snowbanks.

I seen this one in a parking lot and darn near laughed so hard it hurt for a hour!!! A group of us were leaving later in the afternoon to go on a backpack trip. As we were letting sleds warm up 3 guys pulled in by a pickup parked across from us. 2 guys took off there lids while the third on a cat did donuts and jumps in parking lot. The 2 guys then went to trailer and stood on the back so trailer was tipped back 3rd guy lined up and tried to jump into back of his pickup. Well I dont know if they did this before sucsefully or not but it was not this time!!! The guy overshot and he sailed threw the back window of his newer pickup!! Dented the box in and cab as well as wrecked the sled!! I couldnt help but laugh so hard and the madder the guy got the more i laughed!!!

I like the clowns at the gas station with a can (nothing against cans) that fuels his sled up then starts it up and jucies it, lets off, jucies it, lets off, and your supposed to think Wow that is heavily modified, that thing won't even idle! Must have a crazy cam in it!!! hahaha

What about the guy that is too much of a man to sit down while using reverse? He's standing up when he presses the throttle and and gets thrown into the bars pressing the throttle to the bar. Full speed into a snow bank or worse. The last one I saw ended up in a roll over as he turned the bars while laying on them.

Ya, the boat ramps are a good source of entertainment. Especially the big ones on the great lakes.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness", and I have crossed the line!!!!

Hey Ian

How about the guy we saw on the F7 doing some jumps showing off and then hit a tree. Then he gets off his sled and throws a fit, throws his helmet and kicks his sled. Although I would expect this kind of behavior from a cat rider.

OK, I know I was picking on the other 'pet peeves' thread, but I have to agree with part of this thread. When someone fires up a two stroke and then 'warms it up' by holding it to the bar on a track stand (or in neutral,) or even better, riding it WOT, it simply makes me cringe. If it's someone I know I will usually resist the urge to beat them sensless and try to politely explain why they shouldn't do that, but they usually won't listen. I was trying to explain to a guy I dirt bike with that WOT is not the best way to warm up his CR250, and he was giving me the 'yeah, whatever... if I don't do it that way it will foul a plug'... Not 30 seconds later he snapped a piston skirt and punched a hole through the bottom of the case. There's times when you can telepathically communicate the message 'I told you so', and that was one of those times.
