  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Twins 2017

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

    back on the road again, nice! if only we could play .500 at home, we would be doing awsom.
  8. Wild 2016-17 Regular Season

    its just keeps getting worse. I think this team has given up.
  9. Wild 2016-17 Regular Season

    back to the slump. they looked terrible.
  10. Wbc

    USA makes the final 4, great game against the favorites to win it all DR. I wish it wasn't Ervin Santana that gave up 4 runs, but its all good.
  11. Wild 2016-17 Regular Season

    how many 2 on 1 does it take just to get a shot on goal? WOW! and when they get a shot, we miss a wide open net. by far, the wild are the worst team in the NHL now, not even a close second. they need to fix this problem now, or else if we make the playoffs, we will have to play the blackhawks again.
  12. My first and last ride of the season

    sorry about that mn mike, got you mixed with someone else, it happens.
  13. Wild 2016-17 Regular Season

    just thinking here, since the trades, the wild cannot win, and Arizona is now winning. food for thought there hey! I was hoping the wild did nothing during the trade deadlines, as it was working, so there was nothing to fix. have the guys we got in the trade ever played a playoff game in there careers?
  14. My first and last ride of the season

    hey mike, one of the stipulations about buying my old pontoon was you had to include me in any great snowmobiling adventures.
  15. My first and last ride of the season

    well my sled all but almost put away for the year. took it to the car wash today, most gas has been removed, ran the stabile through the gas lines, and put it in its storage spot. only thing still needed to be done is fog the cylinders and tape up the exhaust to keep the little critters out.
