Default One that got away

Heard my local Ski-Doo Dealer had a turbo Sidewinder. Went there and sure enough,there was a 17 winder with 300 miles traded in.
I asked about the story and she said an older guy got it stuck off trail and worked a couple of hours to get it out. Brought it in and traded it for a back country SKi-Doo.

300 miles - check
2017- check
sold yesterday - check
10K - check

It was beautiful, but not to be.
I was a day late-probably a good thing because I might have owned it. Did I say it was beautiful?

Peace, Beeler

Well, the old guy only has 1 more chance, and then he will be out of manufacturers.
Hopefully for his sake, he doesn,t get stuck a couple more times.
They are all heavy, when they get stuck.
I use to sled with a guy that had that thinking pattern, but no more. LOL
Maybe he would be better off to sled with a buddy, or two.
