Very sorry to hear. "Always" My heart goes out to his family and friends for their huge loss. I've always felt that some rides are better than others but every ride that everyone makes it home safely was a good one. The dangers of snowmobiling are always in the back of mind before, during and after every ride. R.I.P Paul.

Sorry to hear about this to, but drinking along with the speeds these sleds can achieve, your on borrowed time. Prayers go out to the family and relatives.

Last big ride I was on one of the guys hit a big frozen chunk in a plowed ridge and broke his back. Paralyzed from the chest down. He was not drinking and not speeding. His chest came down on the handlebars. 2015 Yamaha Viper. Big riser with that hand grab thing that might as well be cast iron. Why is this crap put on trail machines? Sleds could be built safer.
