    Re: Snowmobilers

    Garandman, are you on FB? There are a couple of NH snowmobile groups on there that have pretty good deals on sleds. Private sales.

    I am on that, yes.

    Going to bring the Venture in for service and either trade in or sell the Phazer.

    Bought new Bibs, Gloves, Jacket and Boots for this year.
    Pulled my sled out of my Trailer and washed/waxed it. Chain case oil + Plugs done, I'm ready.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    Just looking at the Polaris lineup, there are a few machines that seem to fit. The selection tool is pretty worthless:

    First is the Voyageur 600, an off trail/utility machine.
    2018 Polaris 600 Voyageur 144 Snowmobile
    And 550
    2018 Polaris 550 Voyageur 144 Snowmobile
    And Indy LXT
    Specs - 2018 Polaris 550 INDY LXT 144 Vogue Silver

    800 Switchback Adventure is $15K MSRP
    2018 Polaris 800 Switchback Adventure Snowmobile
    Ditto Titan 800
    2018 Polaris 800 Switchback Adventure Snowmobile

    Looked up the trade-in value of the Phazer and itís very low: $1,600 to $2,000. Problem is itís kind of hard to private sell a machine that is 100 miles away.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    It is hard to get rid of a sled that is that far away. And it will also be hard to sell at book value price, older sleds like that go pretty cheap. Try asking around on one of those FB groups that I linked to, you will get some wise ass answers and some real ones too. Think Busa.. But there are also a lot of family people on there that have gone through exactly what you are going through now so they can help better than I.

    New England Sled Talk and Snowmobiles of New England are all over, it seems a ton of them are up North so it may be easy sell on those FB groups.

    I like the old Tx440’s and blizzard’s especially the factory racers.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    Contacted Freedom Cycle as we are bringing the Venture in for service. While I won’t get much for the Phazer, they have a number of leftover ‘17 sleds they are dealing on. Probably put it on the trailer and stop by there, and I think HK Motorsports in Hooksett.

    Worst case we had it serviced last year and we’ll just roll with what we have. The Venture has an old school, “Cruiserish” riding position but is fast enough for us, has great range and rides well on rough trails.

    Re: Snowmobilers

    There ya go! Nothing wrong with making a deal on a leftover, it's what I did. Friend of mine works at a Polaris dealer in CT so I drove all the way down to pick mine up, did all the dealing over the phone. If you would like to talk to him I would be glad to give you his phone #, saved me a bunch by going to CT and getting a sled. Yeah the drive sucked but I saved a ton so it was worth it.

    Im partial to the dealers along 93 because it’s on the route to/from our place near Sunapee.

    The Venture goes to the dealer for service Tuesday, I’ll talk to the sales staff in the next week or so.
