Yeah, maybe a fresh start.

Or maybe just an opportunity for some other TOOL to step in and overpay himself while he drags the company down the steep slope. LOL

haha, I'd second a vote for Madcow

The CEO is often merely a figurehead. For a company's corporate culture to change, the VP's of this and that, and all the little bureaucrats need to be rooted out of their comfy positions. I wouldn't expect anything of substance to change, especially since Tiller will be involved in the search for his replacement.

There would be no twins, no tracks shorter than a 144 on anything and 4 different variations of "one lunger" engines that run on e-85. All of which have an accessory list hyperlinked to his own personal website.

I couldn't say it better Rip'n!!! After months of silence I was gonna responde to Ericks "I hope they find someone who shares the same vision that Tiller had" on SF, but for some reason it's taking about 2-3 minutes to load each page over there so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to

I wonder if that fucking douche had ever even rode a sled when they made him the CEO!! I say good ridence ya fucking douche!!!

when it comes to madcow for CEO......oh just think ot the line up of Direct Injected HIGH HP triples rolling out the doors up north!!! :drool:

oh man. wouldnt that be a treat!! the 500 centurian would be the first motor to get brought back!! or a new version anyhow.

problem is i would drive it bankrupt in a couple years. I would skim so much off the top for my pocket they would fire me. I wouldnt even care because i would have a stable or two full of limited production future collector items.

i would not be making body changes every couple years, i would tell the masses, here is a body that is still pretty young, tried and true. and it is a 1000 dollars cheaper with better quality then the competition because we didnt spend 5 million on retooling this year and every 3rd year.

it would be the last year of oil lines rubbing belts and bs like that. it would be the first year of nothing spared to make the sled a 10k mile top notch fit, finish and quality for the every day man. then I would jump on the aftermarket wagon, I would design dress up kits like for your truck, chrome package and stuff like that. you would be able to get polaris aluminum wheel kits for about 75% of the aftermarket cost, so price alone would keep your customers at the dealer, possibly get some service money out of them for installing as well. you would be able to get big wheel kits, all aluminum wheel kits, plastic wheels, same with handgaurds and other body pieces, if there is a big aftermarket, there would be pure polaris aftermarket. and also exhaust systems. and they would have the warning on there"MAY NOT BE LEGAL IN ALL STATES, FOR RACE ONLY" that way when some guy wants to spruce up his 1000 triple dragon with some triple pipes, he can get pure polaris pipes made for his engine by his engine!!! all sleds would be single piped triples for epa and noise, but oh baby, think of the bolt ons for them sleds!!

the line up would be pretty close to what it is now, specific use sleds, but there would be the groomed trail/LAKE race sled. sleds that are strong stock, but, when you get your pure polaris optional race only package, that comes stock with triple pipes and taller gearing .9 lug track, big aluminum wheel package. of course it is a 1000 dollar snow check option for the "race only" sled. but now we would be snow checking 220 hp sleds desinged for top speed and control.

i would also get back to sponsering other racing than just slow cross. I would have money for the everyday guy that can prove he is using polaris products and winning at his local events. wouldnt be much, maybe a points system. win so many local sactioned races, like cmsa, isr events, 1st place is so many points so on for 2nd and third, toss the guy a couple hundred bucks and a coupon for discounted parts. get back to the people that made you great.

I don't think any website is "below" me, it just doesn't fit what I need. Wait, lemme change that, any site besides Extremefilmsproductions.com. I posted over on SF a few times a week or so ago, only got a little harrassment over here for it. Sometimes it's best for all to put differences aside to make the internet a little safer.
We may joke around a tad over here about there; or harrass each other a little bit... but I do not come down on my members for posting there. I do not "hate" anyone that is here and posts elsewhere. It's unreal how poorly some members are treated there becuase of being here, etc. It is your choice an American, and as a human with free will to decide where to go. To be persecuted for these choices is not so "cool". I've said it before and I'll say it again: No single website serves all of our needs. Just like you're here. So please don't think you're not "cool enough" for here or anything like that. I welcome all, even the goderators from SF that visit here under their not-known screen names , even sent them PMs telling them I can change their SN's to match, lol.

HCS is currently banning members of their site that they see post on other sites. How F'd up is that?

to also save money the small sleds ie, 600/700 could be twins, but then also have an 800 and 1050 big sleds use triples based off the small engine parts. the only new tooling would be for a case, you already have everything else in production.

I would work with the 4 stroke area just to provide some competition for yami. they have a hold on this area and its going to be hard to really take over.

Maybe then we'd be lucky and they wouldn't skimp on parts, IE give the trips double bearings on BOTH ends like the new twins... and use some good bearings this time around please? Oh, and go back to the belt-driven water pump too.

We know you're watching! Would you like some serious input from some diehard snowmobilers from all makes so you can build a superior product that will be on top again? I can arrange that... send me an email at Admin@slednutz.com ... or register and say hello. We'd love the opportunity to speak with any of you about your plans and we do have some honest opinions that we feel could help keep the Polaris name out of the Snowmobile Crapper.

to run the oil pump off the water belt is pretty assinine, they used to have double bearings on the storm.
