OK, have a chance to trade my 2005 141" M6 for a 2006 153" M7... I already have a trail sled so don't really care if it wouldn't be the best for trails. The added power would be nice but all I really care about is the extra 12 inches. I will be riding mostly off trail/powder and make a trip out west once a year. Thoughts?

I would think for riding in Il and MI, the 141 would be plenty!! Unless you plan on heading west then I say hell yeah go with the 153!!

How does your girlfriend feel about the extra 12 inches?

The 153 is a yes if you go west,but if you don't need it then don't waste your time
Rode with a guy last year that had the M7 with a 153,sled ran good but I just don't like green unless it's in my bank account.

;) 24 inches would be too much for her.

I dunno what the cash difference between the two would be... I dunno, maybe I am dumb but bigger seems better for off trail to me. I guess making turns wouldn't be as easy. I dunno...

Oh, BTW, it is black. :D

What it comes down to is what your going to have to give to boot... Unless your good friends with the dealer your going to get raped on your sled.... Find out how much your going to have to pay, that way you have a better idea if its a realistic decision or not.....

If it was me id go for the M7..... long as the price was close.

It is a person who is looking for something smaller...so we both have what the other wants. I shot off another message so I'll see what they say. The only thing that sucks is I just order SlyDog Powderhounds with red/black and gray camo. This sled has orange accents. I could replace the seat, boggie wheels and what not but then it is just more money.

UPDATE... My M6 and $600 cash...

for around these parts 153 is too much. it would becaome a pain in the ass to spin that thing around in tight spaces in the UP. out west it would be bad ass. i've ridden the phazer mountain last year in The UP. i think that was a 153 or 155? great in the pow, but dear god did that suck to turn around unless your a god at carving

Yea, maybe it is too big for out here... I dunno, I wanted something different. OK, nevermind me as I do spontaneous stuff like this all the time.

lol don't worry man, bigger is normally better. except when it comes to track length and turning haha. i'd get the M7 and tell hm he can keep the 153" track and you'll swap for the 141 haha

I would go for it. on the ground you are only gaining 6 inches. so it wont be a lot more to handle than what you have now. but in the deeper snow it can make enough of a difference where you might have gotten stuck with the 144 you have a better chance now.
