Hello all,

I am an experienced snowmobiler but have never owned my own sled. I have the urge to own one as it is on my bucket list. After years of high performance boating, atv'ing, sledding, sports, etc I have undergone neck surgery and lower back surgery is probably next. The sports are being taken away one by one and if I have to give up rough trail riding that is fine but at least buzzing across lakes and such I might be able to enjoy.

I need a sled that is hands down the smoothest riding suspension but of course I would like the sportiness also so dont want a total suv of sleds.

I do trail riding in NY and Michigan and PA and like riding fast across lakes never deep snow or real deep snow off in to the wilderness where no man has been.

Any ideas?

thanks

what you need is TWO 2010 X package 1200 renegades with turbo kits and a enclosed trailer> For a small fee I would be willing to store them here and ride the other when you get the urge to freeze your azz off

The twinspar Cat chassis is what you are looking for. No Question, the smoothest ride, easiest steering and best rear suspension.

I have simular issues, I would tell you to look in the Air Wave suspension. If you are up this way, I will let you try one of mine.
