Crazy kids and your crazy sleds.

It will wheelie but it usually isnt too pretty. With mine you have to stand on the grab rail behind the seat with one foot. That day there was a bunch of water patches on the lake. Leads to some hydroplaning which can shatter your confidence pretty quick.

My pops is coming up this weekend with his R1 powered sled and we are heading twoards the border to have some fun. Might be able to get some decent video.

The slight differences in which my dads sled puts mine to shame..

Getting warmer though. Time to start saving for a bike. Thinking supermoto Ktm 450sx, cb919 or a 750 suzuki.

This weekend up Near Millinocket Maine around Mt. Katahdin and moosehead lake. Did about 500 dollars worth of damage. Bent a control rod on the right side during an off trail hill climb (video to come) And on the second day my track flew apart. I shot a picture of the track after we loaded back up.

Got a new respect for snowmobiles after putting some miles on my dads apex. That sled is a monster. The torque is unreal and will do a track-stand cruising from 40 without problem or having to shift your weight. It is a totally different machine though, pretty top heavy but has twice the suspension travel of mine.

Much steeper than it looks.

I love the sound of a two stroke wrapping up nice and high.

What do you call a wheelie on a sled?? A "trackie"??

lol I am not really sure. Still a noob really.. I was talking to somebody in my class. She called it 'pulling the skis up' I think 'trackstand' is also a correct term.

Trackstand sounds good...not as cool as pulling a sweet trackie though!

What about that other "she"?? Now it's "them"?? Hmm........better wear a helmet.

Not at that skill level yet. I just quit the job I was training for at microdyne. Could have been a good job but I was lied to about the starting pay, along with other things. Start a new job tomorrow. Nice day, wish I had something to fly. Might go for a ride.

Been jumping around a bit. Long story, but I work in a german auto parts factory now. Its decent, pay is good. And yours?
Started at 6:45-3 then got swapped to 3-11pm And now they are talking about putting me on a graveyard shift. At least I would get a 3 day weekend I guess.
