My wife, Lisa, is on the forum just as much as I am and she rides just as hard and fast as I do. Some of you talk about your wife's sled, so does any of them have a firecat? I am sure some of you love to leave the women behind. Not I............ I love trying to catch my wife on her F7 Sabercat!

She is the best riding partner that I have ever had!
Sorry guys....................

My wife's first time on the sled was riding in front of me as we blasted across the lake, No helmet, at night, colder than heck she was trying to hide behind the windshield when we hit an ice heave and flew through the air, the landing was what sucked as she hit her head on the steering post right on the bridge of her nose, broke her nose gave her two black eyes, boy was she pissed... needless to say it took 3 years to get her back on one, by herself, she made two laps around the bay on the lake and that has been it...Sorry honey just didn't cut it that time...

No, my wife doesn't own a Firecat. If it had the Smart Ride suspension, she would. She can keep up with me pretty well on her ZL 600.

All I know is that this isn't a good sport for meeting women. 99.9% of women in the sport are there because of a husband.

My wife rides a '97 Panther 440-I'm trying to get her to upgrade-she doesn't see the need. She only goes a few times a year. Once she fed the deer at the Big "T" on the trail to Inlet, NY she was hooked. :wub: I'm just happy to have her riding with me. :)

My wife would ride a firecat if it had reverse. She hate picking the damn things up. She rides a 03 ZL 600 EFI esr SS. The older I get, I'm starting to think she may have something there but my ego and need for speed won't let me ride no "womans sled". Sure wish my "Mans Sled" had reverse though.

My wife was all set to buy an F5 when I bought my F7 but she insisted on having EFI. So she got a 2003 ZL600 EFI SS instead. I think she will be very happy with that though.

My wife rides a 2000 ZR 600. She is no speed demon, but goes a little faster each time we go out. I just set a pace that she can handle and each time take here through a little bit tougher terrain.
I may get her an F5 next year if I can get it in ESR.

I am woman... get outta the way!!! I've got the F5 Team Arctic Red sno-pro.. the hubby has the F7 same graphics but green instead and still the sno-pro.

We are really happy with how they ride and handle as alot of the trails up here aren't groomed like Tug hill's highways. I switched from a yamaha Vmax XT 500, the suspension sucked on that one!!!

Mrs. Firecat :p

My wife's ride for this year is a 2000 ZR 500. Hoping to get a her an F6 EFI next year?!

The best riding that I have done has been when its just my wife and I, we set a comfortable pace and go, although most of the time she's pushing me to go faster!!! LOL!

Hey Mrs. Firecat, I wish I had gotten the F7 now too... I swipe Craig's whenever I get the chance.

I had to laugh when I picked up mine at the dealers... had it loaded on the trailer when the guy walks by and asks if it is mine... I say yes, and he starts to warn me to be careful with that thing...LOL

Where do you ride out of? Maybe we will cross paths one of these days:)
