In Topic: The 900 ACE NA is No-Compromise Enthusiast’s Motor

Yesterday, 03:33 PM

I'm fortunate enough to have a 600ACE, two 900 NA's (a 137 and a 129, both with clutch kits) and a 900T in my stable.  They are all fun in their own way, and each one has its appropriate place where they are the best machine for that place.   I have no problem jumping on any of them and going for a ride.  The 900 NA's are fine for 95% of anywhere I ride.   But for the big trails of northern Maine it's the turbo I'm going to ride.  As long as I don't crash it again...

Hey Josh, thanks again for riding back with me.   For the guys that don't know, I was the last rider in the group.  Unintentionally I "hit a really sweet jump" flying off my sled at about 50 mph.   Poor visibility and unexpected bumps on a wide fast trail.  It was snowing big wet flakes and had to wipe the face shield every 10 seconds.  I should have slowed down.  I was going to tell the whole story but right now I don't feel like it.  It was serious enough that I could have needed emergency services.  I was this close to activating my InReach for help.

In a nutshell, Greg helped me out, Josh rode back with me to my truck.  To add insult to injury, my truck battery was dead and I had to get jumped.


Nothing broken, fairly badly bruised shoulder (actually I think it was dislocated) and leg.  Lower front teeth and jaw took a hit.  Went to dentist, nothing broken or cracked, a couple of small chips that she said will literally "buff out".  LOL

My new sled needed a new steering post and windshield and a couple of other minor console plastic pieces. 

I'm feeling about 95% healed up now.   Also glad I had my tether hooked up and was (as always)  wearing my Tek-Vest.

I will tell you I think my Tek-Vest helped a lot and didn't get any rib or torso damage.  I think it could have been a lot worse.


Went riding with my family the following weekend and had a good time.  I think I'm done sledding for the season, I've been out riding my Spyder already.

Looking forward to the 2022 DooTalk ride!
