Can you give me 75 more days to decide?

It doesn't seem like it would be much fun if I didn't hold out until the very end. Besides, maybe Polaris has an ace up their sleeve.

I will be ordering one. I'm still trying to decide between a RXC, Riot 600 or Riot 800. I was leaning in the direction of an RXC by my dealer said he thinks I will like the Riot more. Tough decisions.

You and I sound alike...considering three....ZR800RR, Riot 800 with 1.6 and QS3 Shocks, or a RXC....then I need to pick a dealer.

I just went on Arctic Cats site again and I really think the RXC is going to be my best choice. About 50% of my riding is northern WI trails and the other 50% is IL ditches. I like the fact that the RXC is considered a cross country type sled. I would say that my type of riding in IL is very similar to cross country racing. On the other hand the longer and deeper lug track on the Riot would be nice when the drifts get deep. Although the 1.35" Cobra track on the RXC should be somewhat effective in the deeper snow as well. I currently have the 1.25" Ripsaw on my RR and hate it in deeper snow. I've owned 800's in the past and I really don't miss them. The 600 is such a good reliable engine that produces nice power. The fuel and oil usage is phenominal as well on the 600.

Itís actually a pretty easy decision if you are honest about where and how you ride.

I agree with Zambroski.
I've thrown around the options with an off trail machine. The dealer suggested trying a Riot. But, when it comes down to a decision. . . I see too many compromises for the majority of my riding.


I average about one new sled each season. Ride the hell out of them until they start to get tired and then keep them a couple of seasons as back up sleds. Those back up sleds also serve as machines for sled less friends and family to ride. It is interesting to see how people choose a sled to ride when they have no skin in the game. Sexy looking machines get first dibs until you start putting time on the seat. Ride awhile and the choices change a lot.



I would love to get one of those great looking off trail machines that get all the marketing attention. I also know that I would be hopping on another machine after I ride awhile.

Very good points. I think the RXC is my best all around option. It will be awesome on the trails and it should be great for ditch banging.
