A friend from AZ came and visited me this weekend and rode 175 miles and it was the first time he ever saw a snowmobile in real life. Anyone know of anyone that has accomplished a similar feat?

My son rode 12 miles at age 4. Quite a ways considering their little thumb is an inch long at that age! Prior to that he was riding around the yard, but without an odometer to measure.

My first time on a snowmobile trail, back in the mid 1970's I rode 28 miles.

That was long way on a 1973 Sno-Jet 338 Star Jet!

It took all day.

one time a few years ago 2 of us rode 360 miles in one day... I woke up the next morning with my arms and legs prone in the seated riding position. THe muscles froze that way....

but i dont think that was your first time ever riding. just a guess though. thats a lot of miles in one day though, very respectable.

Took my 12 yr old nephew for his first ride on his "new" 01 mxz 500 a couple of weeks ago and rode 180 miles (wrong turn and about 50-60 more than planned)

about 8 years ago, a friend of mine borrowed a sled from another friend, we put on 216 miles in 1 day, it was his first trail ride on a snowmobile, prior to this, his only experience on a sled was short jaunts across the lake while we were ice fishing.
