Default This is all Mud's fault

Due to Mud's constant badgering at the group ride I was forced to make all kinds of rash decisions and ended up selling the Assault and buying a different sled.

Here's what I picked up...

Did you at least keep the nature of it being a handful and opt for the 800?

Ummm.... Your welcome? Look at the upside there Gerbs, you and Rubi MATCH! All joking aside, I fucking like it!! That blue is growing on me. I'm on the edge of my seat to see what Polaris introduces on Monday. I have all kinds of options going through my head. Options that also include the kick ass deals on 2013 RMKs at Rexburg, but I'd have to go pick it up?

You guys in Driggs yet? While I don't think there is any way I'll make it out there, I don't think I've totally given up yet either lol.

Like OCR said it is a 600. We got out to Driggs yesterday evening and what is this deal on the 13 pros in Rexburg?

Kind of funny, the deals I saw last week are gone now lol. I wondered if they would disappear once the 2015s were announced, guess so lol. Lowest new 2014 I've seen this morning is $9799 from Rexburg, $500 more than it said yesterday actually.

That is a pretty decent deal but there would more than likely be a freight and doc fee on top of that. The place I bought mine from had some 14s for $9995 but I'm not sure if that was out the door or not.

I'd have to find one less than $9000 to warrant a quick trip to pick up last years model. I'm totally not against it if the opportunity comes up. I've been looking at Polaris's website all morning doing a gazillion calculations to decide what route to take lol.

There is only one good choice and that is to take the route that ends up in the Teton valley.

lmao I agree. Long freaking drive by myself though, I've been going back and forth over it for a couple months lol. If I could find a stellar deal that couldn't be passed up on an RMK, I'd make the push. I don't see that scenario presenting itself though.

Yeah it sounds good. You big baller Pavers are a real bad influence lol.


I really need to stop looking lol. I found a 14 non pro 800 155" which doesn't have the belt drive for $8899 at my local dealer.

Took the new sled out for a rip today and I am pretty stoked on that little thing. That chassis handles substantially better than the IQ in my opinion, I especially like how easy it is to put on edge when going down hill. We found some pretty nice untouched snow to ride today so that was really fun to ride except for when I was stuck as shit (which happened a number of times).

There is photographic evidence of today's ride so you will all have to wait on Rubi to give you the big rundown.
