    Re: Picked up a new sled!


    I've been riding sleds my whole life until about 5 years ago and I've never NEEDED scratchers but I can see where they would be nice to have.

    The best part about snowmobiling is it's the final frontier of speed. We primarily rode in northern Quebec where the trails were always groomed and packed like cement. They were also very wide and open so you could see on coming traffic. It was to the point where anywhere you rode you felt like you were on a race track. We rode like total assholes. All out all the time. Wide open on the straights, braking as late as possible and carrying as much speed as we could through the turns, and back to wide open on every straight. We could cover over 300 miles in a day like this no problem. Other than a race track, I can't think of any other place where you can get away with pushing something to that level for hours on end like we did.

    Our group was well split between the four major brands but in the later years everyone ended up on Yamaha 4-strokes. Even the newer two strokes struggled to take that kind of riding.

    Those were the days.

    You guys might cost me some $$. We like our old Yamaha Venture but the Phazer isn’t really that useful for us.

    Haha! If you wish, a friend of mine is a salesman for Polaris. Bad news is that he is in CT at Scranton powersports but he would most likely make the trip worth it.

    We register them in NH. Would I have to pay CT sales tax?

    Hard for us to sell the Yamaha because it’s at Sunapee and we’re only there part time.

    My STX 900 Jet Ski is NOTHING like my 900 SnoPro as far as acceleration. Then again, I think top speed on the Jet Ski is only +/- 50MPH. In my opinion, the sled will get me there MUCH quicker than the Jet Ski.

    Still learning and adjusting. Both myself and the Snowhawk. It wants more powder snow than we currently have. Jumps and wheelies really well. I'd like to think it will improve my riding, if I live long enough. So far, adding throttle fixes most situations. Weight the inside peg to initiate a turn, get on top and lay it down like a dirtbike.

    I saw the picture and my first thought was if it was yours or not. Guess I got my answer.
