That's because your scared to know how much money you lose lol, at least that's why I don't keep track lol.

^^ That's about the way I figure it. I get sick of losing money and chalk it up to being an expensive sport. Now I could leave everything stock, but wtf fun is that?

I think we might have scared him away by talking about how expensive the sport is. Everything entertaining is expensive so it doesn't really, if you don't spend money sledding it would likely go toward some other entertainment.

If you don't want it to be an expensive spot it doesn't have to be. You can buy a good used sled and as long as its been taken care of it shouldn't cause you any trouble.

If you're riding a reliable stock sled all you having to worry about it your riding gear, gas, oil, insurance and license......that is kinda spendy still aint it? Oh well, still cheaper than hookers every time you want a ride!

lol I know how expensive the sport can be, same thing with PWCs. I am still debating whether or not to buy a seadoo in the spring or a snowmobile this fall. I have been riding seadoos for 13 years now, and I love it. My aunt has a seadoo though, its a couch but its something to ride, so im thinking I wanna buy a snowmobile to give me something to do in the winter.

Well, I keep mine fairly cheap, much as I would like a new (er) sled.
This one keeps me going fairly well and with suspension upgrades will do so for several more years. Now all I really need for it is a reverse.

I've got to admit I used to laugh at pussies that had reverse. Until I had reverse lmao, now I love it. No more strategic parking lol. I can park wherever I chose and don't have to worry about breaking my back lol.
