I bought my twins(12yo) a couple new 2011's this fall .They got 20 miles on in the yard when we got 14" but trails never opened and now rain washed it away,argghh!, Anyways they've got take off for sure, and will be nice, lighter kids plus not hot rod ding = 30 mpg?! Will post when we get some real miles on. Paid $11,600 for the pair which I thought was a sweet deal.

My wife and I rode 252 miles last Monday. She used 9.2 gallons and I used 9.3. It is great to know we can ride 200 to 250 miles a day on a single tank if need be. They may not be the fastest sleds we have ever owned but they are without a doubt the best all around machine I have ever owned.

Hi EvilTwin......It was great meeting you and your wife at Parlin Lodge and again on the trail........sounds like you really like the ace motor.......I am thinking about selling my 2012 arctic cat F1100 turbo and going with something smaller------it may be the the Doo 900 Renegade which is rumored to be released next week. My son Rob who rides my (now his) 1200 ---2010 Doo RenegadeX and I swapped off several times last week on our 500mi trip to Pittson farm and we both conclude that the SkiDoo 1200 rode and handled far better than the Arctic Cat 1012 Turbo Snow Pro. So I think I will go back to SkiDoo ------its now a matter of another 1200, 900, or 600.

Bob,

Having a hard time seeing you on a 600 Ace. You still seem to like that raw power that comes from the larger displacement engines. The 1200 seems like a great fit for your riding style. You are welcome to try my Ace if you are in the Jackman area.
