None in MN, lol

I should've included this part, was in such a hurry to post the schedule that I skipped over it:
On a recent visit to the Arctic Cat factory, we learned participating Arctic Cat dealers will be receiving a select number of 2021 models for demo rides/display very soon, and Factory Reps will be touring dealerships with additional 2021 models. We will do our best to share those dealer locations so you can go visit them to ride, look or touch a 2021.
I asked one dealership if they had plans to hold a demo event, similar to what they did last year. Their response was that they requested it and are waiting to hear back from Cat on a schedule.

So, I suspect we'll see dealer demos, in addition to the official schedule. :bc2:

did anyone get to toss a leg over one of these this past weekend? Radio silence for the most part on this sled since it was introduced, hoping to start getting a few ride reports.

ArcticInsider - 2021 ARCTIC CAT DEMO RIDES AT ERX IN ELK RIVER, MN JANUARY 25&26!!!
@mnstang can you take a gopro and perform a ride report on all three models?

if not, I get it and could have went to ER this weekend but chose riding at home instead.

didn't look like many people were even at ER for the race, hopefully ERX will have a bigger turnout.
I'm out of town riding Friday, Saturday, maybe Sunday. I may go there Sunday depending when I get back. They're also having the big vintage ride/show there that same weekend, formerly the waconia ride in- moved to ERX, so there might be alot of people test riding, good move by cat to get the demo with that event.

If I go, what specifically do you want to see?

They're having demo rides this weekend at ERX. The waconia vintage show will be there too. I'm not sure if they'll have other cat sleds there but I did hear the blasts will be. Could be a good time.

roger that! :thumbsup:

if you go, I want to see it ride wheelies, side hilling pow on the M, pulling a fish house with the LT and a real world size comparison of the chassis/tunnel/etc. to see just how mid-sized it is. would also be nice to see an adult that knows how to man handle a trail sled tossing the ZR around on the narrowed front end and base shocks. snooping around pics/vids it seems all the normal p/c bracing is gone from these. in other words, give it the full Lester treatment. :)

I saw the three blasts out front at Thomas sno sports today. The M had the American flag graphics and it looked good, they all looked good
the M's are the best looking of the three models

the ZR would look better with a 128/9

the LT has the best windshield :)

taking one for a spin by chance?
