    Default 2017/18 Snowmobile season

    So, figured I'd kick this off, granted, I'm no longer in WNY...

    In the PNW, our winter didn't start off as strong as it did last year, but we're still getting good snow, ski hill has ~120" base...I've been out about 10 times already. I also picked up a new sled, as my last years sled was pretty beat.

    Polaris AXYS RMK Pro 800 155"
    kPa turbo
    TurboSmart 40mm ext. wastegate
    Custom clutch kit w/ turbo specific primary weights
    Fox Float 3 RC2 Evols
    Other various mods

    Sled flat out rips...running 5psi currently, w/ 70:30 91octane non-eth & 100LL

    That off trail riding looks like an awesome time.

    I bought an an almost new zr7000 and a new sr viper last year. I got about 500 miles in last week. Longest ride was Alden to Mayville area.

    This meltdown sucks.

    Got out for one ride. This was actually the 2nd big melt we had and both of them were devastating. Hope this cold stays for the rest of the season.

    Its 100% over for January. There is a warmup for the entire end of the month. Hopefully February recovers.

    Check out the Instagram thread on the 'new' site.

    Currently pimping out a late 70s arctic cat lynx. I raised the bars 4" and will do another 4 now that I got a throttle cable extension. Going to put it on the road next week. Plans for the summer are 144" track and plastic skis. Messing around with junk is so much fun.
