I know very little about sleds, but that thing looks badass. Like riding a chainsaw, backwards.

XP Summit on a Michigan dealers floor, they really wanted to move it. I rode a XM with T-motion for a bit, too little time onboard to say much. I will wait to see how far Doo will take it, or if they scrap the idea.

I know how it is trying to sell a long track in Michigan. I've got a 144'' summit for sale, nobody is buying right now.

Nice sled, the Summit is a great michigan mountain sled as it rides and handles like a short track on the trail. I think between my wife and I we have had 6 XP chassis summits.










And then my baby....There is a reason they call them RMKings

barry1me, nice sleds! My plan was to spring check a 146 and do away with my XP Gader, but the 154 was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I ride with a couple guys on RMK 155's, they are not too bad for a Polaris product.

Thanks man. I like the 154 its a nice tweener sled for out west. What I miss about the Summits was the wheelie/fun factor. Our summits have been great sleds. My favorite summit was my 2010 XP 146 800r X package. I sold that for my 2011 RMK 163. No looking back thats for sure. I did ride a 800 etec and it does put some more power to the ground then the Polaris does. The last time we were in the snowies the powder was so deep that we couldnt carve without the snow choking out our engine, we installed the SLP powder valves on the bottom of the intake and it solved the problem.

I have heard about that issue, my buddy rides a 2013 RMK Pro 800, I thought he said Polaris took care of that problem for 13?
