Default Riding OR Racing ? What's your Preference ???

Curious as to what people enjoy most, riding or racing ? Seems these are the two most talked about topics with regards to snowmobiling, especially here in NS. No "both" replies either, you know what gets your blood pumping, it's one or the other. So, do you like going for a good ride, taking in the scenery, bustin pow, carving around a turn on a freshly groomed trail, or do you prefer the testing and tuning, the adrenaline rush at the line, holding it to the bar WFO, and the sweet sound of the "c" note ? Should be interesting

So are you saying its not possible to like doing Both? There are lots of days to go riding and not enough organized races for those who like racing as well. Best of both choices really...Ride when theres Powder and race when there's racing is my theory!
If there are races on a given day and Others are going riding...I am going racing!

Never said you couldn't like both, just asking which one you prefer. We already knew your answer.

Speed never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you.
