    big lake, and palisade
  1. We could be riding the nsst

    I finally got the new sled out Friday, palisade area, all trails were groomed, but not much for base. the best riding was in the ditch, and riding the river. 70 miles put on, and have to say, I am happy with the new sled.
  2. We could be riding the nsst

    warmer weather, some more snow on sunday, and trails starting to get groomed.
  3. We could be riding the nsst

    I had to bring my 2008 in for that recall, I waited till riding was about done for the year before I had it done. doesn't matter much now since I traded it off this season for my new machine that has a whopping 5 miles on it now, great timing for a new sled. hopefully it will get used plenty next weekend, its looking promising.
  4. Atv to utv

    I like the ATV because its more rider active. like snowmobiling, your riding plays in the control of the machine.
  5. Upper Michigan snowmobiling suggestions?

    they are doing a family outing, I would like to get out riding soon, I have next week off work, so might have to do a day trip up north if I can brave the cold.
  6. Upper Michigan snowmobiling suggestions?

    all I know they are heading back up Tuesday. I know he said anything past Hayward had plenty of snow. they were past iron river, more up the shore.
  7. Upper Michigan snowmobiling suggestions?

    I work with someone that went up last weekend, he said awsom riding, plenty of snow.
  8. Pictures of you snowmobile!

    I just use straps, they seem to hold plenty good for the wheeler, so the sled should be fine, I do use the parking brake also.
  9. Pictures of you snowmobile!

    just picked it up today
  10. Pushbutton start

    my 2015 truck has a key, but it starts from the first turn, not how long you hold the key on start. meaning, I have had my fingers slip off the key while turning it without getting to full turn, but even with my hand off, it still started, (pretty weird). I would think a keyless ignition is the same. same thing with auto start, my truck and keyless car start every time in the extreme cold.
  11. I couldn't help myself!

    done deal today, traded off the 08 F8 for a 2018 ZR800 sno pro. dealer had to order it from cat, so it will be a couple weeks until its ready.
  12. I couldn't help myself!

    against my better judgement, I will buy a new sled this year, it better snow! well my sled is 10 years old this year, only 4235 miles on it, I will trade it off. having almost all cats, might buy a Polaris pro-s switchback 800, 2017 carryover.
  13. Your first sled?

    my first sled my dad bought for me from my uncle, ski-doo Nordic 371, not sure about the year. my first new snowmobile that I have bought was a artic cat couger 500 1988.
  14. Does anybody else hate basketball?

    I prefer watching college basketball over the pros, but the end of the games are way too long, your down 10 points with 20 seconds, stop fouling already. baseball is getting much worse, they put you to sleep. and they tried to speed up the games. ever watch a red sox game, they must average 3.5 hours each, that team is the human rain delay. hockey and football are the fastest and most enjoying to watch, even though football has many commercial breaks, they leave the clock run when you go out of bounds now, but the game has not gotten any faster. they just have more time for commercials.
  15. Twins 2017

    it sure seems many players have a career highlight against the twins.
