I agree also. I had a Turbo, several riding buddies bought them also. I was working my butt of hustling through the twisty bumpy trails. I got tired of it, and went back to 2 stroke. My riding buddies are expressing that they are amazed how much faster I go, easier on the 2 stroke. They ride both the Suzuki and Yamaha turbos. No way I would go back.I completely agree, same experience for me. Great sled with fast groomed trails but not so great in the rough and sloppy trails. It is a weapon in the right conditions, its a handful when the trails or conditions aren't the best. Great sled never the less love the power and speed but like everything it has its short comings.
Now if I rode wide open trails with sweeping curves the turbo would be an option, but that isn't the trails I ride.
The loudest talker in our group was talking a ton of crap when he bought his sidewinder. He kept up just barely.. He rode my 800 and then my 600. He could actually keep up on the 600 better than his Sidewinder. He commented it was "so easy to ride". He's contemplating going to a 2 stroke as well after riding his sidewinder 1 winter. It seems that some areas are better for the Turbos, some are worse. Where I ride, they aren't the hot set up.
