the biggest issue are egos! Everyone goes out and buys the fastest machine, or clutches them and tries to be "Tucker Hibert". Even the best rides have bloopers. You need to ride at your comfort level. If I ride with guys that are better than me....go ahead of me. Wait at the next intersection. If they can't do that them don't ride with them. Like a motorcycle accident, does not take much to not make it home in one piece. Trees don't move, and Godspeed some out of control inexperienced rider is not on your side of a blind corner.

There is nothing that matches the enjoyment of being out in the woods with friends or family, nothing. That can quickly be ruined by one or two idiots. Slow down, enjoy the amazing scenery, you might be surprised that you to will enjoy it. Keep it up and speed limits will result.

This is so true, there are so many factors that allow some to be able to run at a much faster pace than others safely and not out of control (years of experience, miles on sled model etc.) for some to try to do the same can end up blowing corners and are riding reckless, I always suggest any one i ride with to not feel they have to keep up, ride at at a level that is safe and doesn't make you pucker, i will always wait at intersections.

No she wrecked the sled before I met her.

I hate the guys that line up single file at intersections. Spread out man, everybody wants to see how cool you look!

Guys that only stay in their lane and never cross over the imaginary middle line. This is a sport isnít it, letís try and kill someone?!?

I canít stand it when guys donít stop at every bar along the way. How else am I going to tell strangers how great I am?

I hate people that buy trail permits. Youíre just making the rest of us look bad!

Nothing bugs me more than people who stop and ask if you need help. Just piss off and leave me alone, I like frostbite!

I absolutely hate the guys that stay on the marked trails, and never go ripping through private property! I mean if the land owners arenít threatening to take our trails away, what are we going to talk about in the summer?

People that clean up their garbage and food wrappers after themselves. How else am I going to know where to go, or how to get back home?
