so since winter is coming soon, what do you ride and what kinda riding do you like to do. Also when the time comes maybe we can do like a tti group ride day!

I drive a 2001 polaris edge x 600. This is when i bought it:


Getting ready for winter last year:



And after she is done:





As you can see i love ditch banging but ill do some trail riding aswell. Favorite place to hit up is Neepawa in the valleys.

    I used to sled on an old '84 SS25...



    Wicked little machine, would do about 75 mph on a cold day, rode like a mechanical bull, no one could ride the thing apparently but I grew up riding it and all the new IFS stuff felt alien to me.  We still have it and a '74 JDX8 and a '71 Olympique in the backyard.  All would be nice resto projects one day. 

    I doubt I'll ever pick up another sled.  For me the season is too short and 100+ a weekend on gas and other junk makes it even more a of a toy compared to my bikes.

      Was waiting for a thread like this! Picked up this gem a month ago. It's a 1977? Arctic Cat Cheetah 5000. 500cc twin, single carb. It's not in show-room shape, but I paid $25 bucks for it from the original owner and everything seems in order. Just need some free time to get it running, but it's getting close. Can't wait to sled this year!

                  We've got a bit of a fleet I suppose, all Arctic Cat's, consists of:

                  - F-1000
                  - 2 F-800's
                  - F-700
                  - Sabercat 700

                  We trail ride, usually trailer out to Southbeach Casino or Sedons Corner and ride from there.

                                      I ride an 03 firecat.  That's my Dad's rev in the back.

                                      Been thinking of selling the cat and picking up a Rev, but I'm still not sure

                                        Personally I wouldn't buy a triple.  Thy tend to burn up the middle cylinder.

                                          if they are well maintained then they are awesome sleds. heavier then a twin tho but they can make some wicked power.
