Ok, sled payment $100 per month, times 12 months equals $1200. Carbides, I dunno, around $50 I guess. Sliders, a change of chaincase oil, led taillight, white and blue paint, shock protectors, new dash, all this cost around $125. 10 gallons of gas, $25. Couple quarts of oil, $25. Registration/insurance, probably $200. Total: $1625. Total miles ridden thus far, about 35. So that's 47 dollars per mile. Awesome investment.

mm Sleds payed off so no payment.
around 150 in a big case of bulk Bombardier synthetic motor oil along with some more oil that I picked up at the gas station on rides when I didn't carry any with.
about 500.00 in gas so far this season, and I only have 1500 miles on my sled.

No room fee's as I drive up from college and stay at my parents house or some of the family's house when I ride.

last but not least about 200 in gas to drive from college home to ride for the past 2months.

Also 70.00 for insurance from American Family.

Free set of carbides from a family member since the others finally fell of.

Back in November I lost out! Sold the ski-doo and payed of some student loans. Picked up a 96 xlt sp polaris for 500.00. Rebuilt the blown motor for about 600.00. added a low cobra shield 60.00 then changed the slides about 25, then about 70 in gas as I broke it in back in November before the foot of snow we had melt.

Then got smart and went back to ski-doo, sold the xlt for 900.00 so I lost out just a bit with the time and money I invested.

I can add up sledding costs till Im blue in the face, but one fact remains... Its still cheaper than being married and I can ride my sled for more than a few minutes at a time.

Yeah.... I can't top that figure Mama, or else I'd be sleeping in the garage ON the sled.


But I figure I'm around $30 a mile with 309 miles this year and about 5-6 tanks of gas tuning in the 440 getting 5-6 miles per gallon at the beginning.


Shhhh don't tell my wife!!
