    1000 miles on my snowmobile!

    Well I did it. Just hit 1000 miles riding my 2011 Arctic Cat. Great sled with a bombardier adjustable backrest and Simmons Gen III skis. C6-7 but with above average grip. Its a heck of a workout staying on it in bumps but it sure is fun. I only fell off twice early on. Now I stay up with most above average riders.

    That's fanastic! Looks like a lot of fun. The weather is a turn off for me. Florida raised here.

      Thats Awesome!!!! I just started Snowmobiling this year and so far have about 200 kms on the sled. I use the same backrest, which is amazing I might add. Its super fun.

      Congrats on hitting that milestone!!!!

          I love it...I really do..! That is a great pic!

          I would love to go snowmobiling up in Yellowstone (say). Go with a guide and some others and stay in little fire-burning cabins in the forest.

                        Becripeq. What are Gen III Simmons skis?
                        K-Dog, How do you like the Ski-doo. I had a hard time riding them, too tippy for me.

                          Funny you say that. I tipped it over within the first 3 kms. Lack of experience and too much confidence. Since then I have not had any issues(knock on wood) I just stay away from steep ditches especially when trying to go up them on an angle. Chalked it up to learning how to ride a sled.

                            Gen III skis are wider than stock. 8 inches instead of 6.

                            K-dog, I have a ski doo too. An older Formula and I tipped that sucker over on me. LOL. After and when I decided to go new I bought the widest sled possible. It makes a huge difference. I think you can widen your ski stance. I would widen to 42 inches if possible. My arctic cat doesnt tip at all.
