Hey Guys,

I know it's not a ZR/ZL but we had a really fun time
yesterday watching a 159" Special Edition MC 900
walk all over the mods... There were all brands
sitting there observing and all had a great time.
Those with mods could do the same hill as the 9
but not nearly with the ease... He bought it the
day before and had the nads to match the sled...
40 ft nearly straight up and over the top, ski's
never touching down. Another dude on a 900 151"
Pulled the ski's at the bottom and ended up vertical
on the hill. It was an amazing show. Rumor was he
bought the 159" the day before! He was romping the
hill. One guy had gotten a 156" (I think) 800 Poo down
in a major hole and the 900 was in and out trying
to pack down the trail. We needed to pass on helping...
:-( I ride an 02 800 MC EFI 151 and it did awesome
all day in the deep stuff but we sure didn't want to
be stuck at dark with a group waiting on us. Sorry
dude! There were a couple others helping so he did
fine by days end.

On a bad note, we lost a ring on an ZR 700 that had
been long tracked. Only 3 miles up the trail so that
was the only good part to it.

Regardless... Close to 6 feet of powder and a group
of great guys to ride with resulted in one of my most
memorable days out. To everyone a GOOD season!

Hey Rem, this side of the forum is really for all other cats...not just ZR/ZL's. That mountain riding sounds like a blast! Rob is where we all wish we were...riding Quebec for a week. Marc

An update... They eventually got the 151" 01
800 Poo out. The Cat rider says he's very
sore and they were exhausted from the snow
up to the chest but eventually they were able
to "walk it out" read as... WFO!

I gotta tell you guys from back East (I grew up
in Maine), this mountain riding is something else.
Trails were crappy yesterday but off-trail was
unbelievable. Have some pics from a buddy if
interested. Unfortunately, no action pics... We
were all having too much fun in the powder!

Hey Marc,

You'll be glad to know I'm just in from "spankin'
an RMK 800"

Pulled up beside him on the railroad right of way
and he stopped... I stopped... He yelled "Let's
ROLL!!!!" :) Needless to say, I bit... And bit him
hard! I was 7 sled lengths ahead when we came
to a stop. Part of that was probably visibility behind
me... 2" paddles throw some crap! Had her up to 80
in 10" of trackless powder! Nothing wrong with an
RMK, it would be my second choice for out here in the
powder. This was just screwing around the house.
