Nice sled...hopefully I can get mine out this yr, I didn't even get them off the rack last yr. I'm pretty sure CC will disown me if I don't do at least two trips with him this yr

it was for sale on here, for $5500. blue book was $6300.
no one was interested. owner called me in may, said bring him $2500 and get it out of his garage.
i was not in the market for a sled, at that price i had to buy it. wife was not real happy i did it.

its a 136 track, and it will not fit in my trailer well. i would trade for a 121 track apex.
or possibly a nice fast, low mile 121 track 2 stroke even.
i thought about buying it, and putting it on ebay when snow flies for 5k.
sell my polaris for 1k, take the profits and buying something else.
now im leaning towards keeping it though. i got 3 sleds currently, and my wife dont ride.

my travel trailer will be at benjamins beaver creek resort, on otsego lake, for the winter to ride from.
my enclosed trailer is ready to camp in at any trail head also.

I am NOT ready for the cold. I hate cold. Winter sucks. Shoveling sucks. 3 hours of daylight sucks. I want to move to the desert.


But since the wife won't move there, we'll make the best of it.

you can have it. just moved back from 12 years in san antonio texas. 110 degrees for 8 months at a time is not great either. and in the winter they still have short days. dont know about 3 hours though.

On halloween down there its like 95 degrees. sweat my ass off. the plus side is the girls are wearing less...

hows that formula treating you? I am eyeballing one that is for sale.

I fired up my 600 when I was walking around the garage. Just a few minutes to get the smell going on. I'm ready to go riding but my sleds are far from it. My 800 needs a new single pipe.

The last couple years, my buddy and I were still riding during deer hunting season. You are allowed on the ORV trails from like 10-2 I believe.
