    Nice sleds! I've always liked those 2012 assaults!

    I would be down for a TTI snowmobile ride, here's my switchback assault

      bumping this because almost winter.

      I used to have a 2012 switchback assault, Bought new in 2011. (if you remember that winter, it was abysmal)
      had a few mods done to it, wrap, bumper, skis, windshield, storage bags, etc. nothing engine wise.
      Was a SUPER fun sled. as you guys with assaults know, they kick ass.



      BUT.... it was stolen last winter :( On new years eve at 3 am. My assault, and my sisters boyfriends Rush were stolen. Sadface. I miss that thing every single day.

      So now I'm in the process of getting our old 1981 Moto-ski Mirage II in good working order for this winter.

      Best picture I have of it right now, hiding behind my quad.




      it's almost ready to go. got the carb cleaned and she runs now. Needs an exhaust gasket replaced, which should be done soon. have to pull the engine to get at it.

        Picked up another sled in the spring, cheap.  2004 Polaris RMK 800, fresh motor, lots of spare parts, should be fun as long as we get some snow!  Last sled was an '03 Arctic Cat ZR900 Snow Pro, that thing was a rocket and I miss it still.

          going to try and get the motoski in prime condition this weekend. plugs and exhaust gasket should be the only main issues.


          till then watch this.

              Got the Moto-Ski running real nice!

              Pulled the engine out and replaced the exhaust gaskets. Gonna drop in some fresh plugs, gas, toss in some new shocks and be good to go for the season.

              Wont be as fun as my 2012 switchback, but **** at least I have something to ride.

                as per usual on old machines, you fix one problem then the next weakest link pops and you gotta fix that. Have a fuel line that split now, gotta pick up some new line to replace them all now. Not a big deal.

                  Anyone have a line on a used sled service lift for sale?  Let me know, I'm looking.

                        the Moto-Ski is running fantastic once again. had it out a few times and have put on probably 100 miles already so far without any issues. the old girl still keeps up with highway traffic when im on the trails in the ditches. Pretty stoked about that.

                            I wouldn't call it mint, has a few cosmetic issues but for a 36 year old machine that has been used for 31 years of its life, I'd say it's pretty good shape yup!

                            Still really miss my 2012, but there's something kind of satisfying about riding such an old.machine.
