That has got to be the stupidist thing I've read in awhile.I spend $10,000 on a new sled every couple years.$100 to register it.I spend $500-600 for a weekend of riding several times a year.I figure I spend at least $4000 a year to snowmobile,that is not including parts,insurence,and the cost of the sled,or clothing.Im curious how much money you think people riding bikes spend.O and the best part is that snowmobile registration and trail permits are what pay to maintain the trails.
Im a snowmobiler,and ride a mountain bike.I think bike riders should pay for there own trail system,and go thru all the work that the snowmobile assosiation does to get permision from land owners,etc.
Keep the bikes and blades off of our snowmobile trails,period.
