On the demo ride up by Two Harbors in 2011, "We want your real opinion... ride 'em like you normally would, and don't baby these either... don't ride over your head to try to keep up, but we can't improve them unless we hear what you like or don't like"... the guy pushed the recall on the one I rode that year and said, "The guy that had this one this morning got 'er doin' 107 mph." And later, apologizing profusely, "We don't have any rough stuff to take you on to show you what these things can really do..."

The sleds were even better in 2012. As soon as I find out when they have their demo rides I'll let you know (if you don't already hear about it)... Make it a point to get on one...YEEHAW!! Last year was touch and go with the low/no snow, but we went down to Hayward to get on the new stuff on a fresh 8". Gassing up @ the end of the day, the tally came to over $300 for the day. First rate act, again!

Good for Polaris, but why in the hell would you compare light 2 strokes with a heavy pig 4 stroke turbo? These rocket scientists were surprised that the 4 strokes were heavier. I honestly could care less about the comparisons that shows and magazines do. If you have met some of the morons that put this stuff out, and I have, you wouldn't put a lot of stock in their opinions either. But in this case the happened to pick the right one.

I was talking about their decision to use a turbo 4 stroke Arctic Cat against the Polaris and the doo. Why not test a 800RR Cat? Dumb comparison. Yes, I am well aware that Yamaha has nothing to compare to the other three.
