Got me beat Topper. I only got 1200 - 1500 (do we count track spin?). Where did you get 20 - 30 mile rides down here?

All hail "King topper" :beer_cheers:

Kubota i meant out the back door of the camp, a little tough to do it on mineral spring ave lol. How did you like the apex? The vectors the bomb in Vt with the tight twistys, seen lots of 4 strokes this season , I know i won't go back, also convinced a die hard skidoo guy to switch to yammi after i blew his 02 700 and his new to him 06 mxz 600 out of the water it was pretty funny He ended up getting a 04 RX 1. Maybe next year we could hook up for a ride...

Attak Apex there all the same. I loved the sled. It needs a couple of "Tweaks" though. I have to change the skis, there all over the place, I want to add a bigger sway bar to help keep the front end flatter in the tight twisties. You do have to work pretty hard but the ride is worth it. Did I mention the adjustable rear suspention? Tighten it up when your flying and soften it up when you hit the bumps. I was ripping through bummped up corners at 60 mph.
There is an F7 in our group that I raced a few times on the lake and beat. There is a 600 Dragon in our group that could hang with me on the lake and a 800 Dragon that just said C-YA.
All in all I would give the sled a 95 out of 100.

A ride would be great. I was actually working in VT this winter but never took the sled.

It has to be the Squerderski-billi, 7200+ on a new Jag. Which is a used sled now.

Not bad for having to travel, but I didn't have too. Did almost 4000 miles last season, that includes down time, waiting on repairs. So sweet, nothing like the NEK, Vt. Can't believe you worked here and didn't bring your sled...

Haven't been there in the winter yet. Spent most of the summer up in Burlington though.

You don't know what your missing, and this isn't Burlington. Do yourself a favor. Bring your sled. WHERE THE TRAILS ARE FLAT, AND THE SNOW IS WHITE. Check these pics out. Like this all season. The Northeast Kingdom, Vt.
