Even tho it was way too short.  Logged in 850 miles for the season. (Some not pretty) Grateful for being able to
have a few trips that were awesome.

Lonestar, you are so right.  The longest trip I took on my old sled (aka ManBeater) was 220 miles. Logged in a short
150 mile trip this year on my new 600 etec, but had so much more fun. Noone could believe the MPG I got. Then she
goes in the shop after the last big snow, and I got the 1200 for a loaner. Wow, what a nice sled.  I would recomend
that one.

Torch, Thank you for the offer, but 1 husband is fine. LOL

This board is great.

Have a safe year everyone.  I think this old girl might take up 4wheeling. I can see my guy's eyeball rolling as I type! lol Roll Eyes

   Glad to hear you had a good season. This season was prolly my worst in years, in terms of total miles. Seemed like everytime we went out someone broke down and ended the day quickly, with that being said, I still had a great time. Winter is my time. Just being away is good enough for me. I tend to have entirely too many projects going on in the summer to enjoy it.

Have a great summer everyone!  Cool

Good way to look at things Warren, it is definitely fun to put on a bunch of miles, but then comes the maintenenance that goes with it, 2 strokers aren't really meant for that action (cough cough) Just getting up to camp and enjoying the company of freinds is all I really need to get through the winter months, not about the miles, ALL about the smiles  Wink
That being said I had an excellent winter -- headed up tomorrow to see whats left

The 1200 is hard to beat for all day trail cruising.  I still would really like a light weight bump sled too though.... Wink

Glad you had a good ride and got a few miles in this year.  SYOTT.

In terms of miles and hours of seat time . . . worse year yet. No local riding and I just couldn't get the time or get my riding buddys to get the time to trailer the sleds and go riding.

Three rides . . . 566 miles. As I said . . . not good. However, the three rides and 566 miles I went on were fantastic . . . it was well worth the expense of registering the sled just for those three rides.

For me it always has been and continues to be the smiles, not the miles that make me love this sport.

Besides . . . next year will be different . . . Wink
