backpack is more cost effective.

If you ride over moguls without standing up you must not have testicles or something

This thread went from questionable to full on retard. Some of you must have really bad posture....or, are you somehow trying to defend standing up trail riding? Either way, some of these posts make me just SMH.

krom, too slow, cfm and 1 others like this.

Hey. I rode my sled a few laps around my yard this weekend. Standing up of course. I was going to take a selfie and post it here but figured that wrecking my sled, in my own yard, would probably show some pretty bad judgement on my part. You know what I mean.

Put on a 10" riser and then you'll have to stand too.

Yeah...I pulled my sled out of the garage yesterday and I stood while doing it also. I almost crashed but regained control to save the day!!!

That would be a better thread actually: "What fucking retard puts a 10" riser on their sled to trail ride??"

Answer: People that want to stand comfortably while they clog up the trail system.

Think this riser is 4.5 feet tall Helps with loading on sled decks.

I can see in the real ruff stuff but not on smooth trails! Tucker Hibbert would ride Tug sitting down, I think we need more cross country races televised so people can see how they should ride, Not like snow cross racers that are riding a quarter mile track with 20+ foot jumps! Well to each there own, but just a heads up, I'll be the one passing you sitting down!!
In New England, people who ride standing typically have long track machines. Long track machines are very light in the rear. When a rider stands the weight distribution is forward of the track, causing the track to spin easily. Throttle Jockies (useless revving) are known to be track spinners, the mortal enemy of every trail. A careless Throttle Jockie can destroy hundreds of miles of trails in a day, leaving behind back-braking moguls for everyone else. Just my opinion, but you don't want to be labeled a Track Spinner or Throttle Jockey. Sit down, relax, enjoy the trails, respect the trails, and your fellow rider will love you for it!
