Default The picture you all want to see!!

Rode about 110 miles today with Dirty Harry and had a blast! Blowing snow and drifts were crazy fun even though visibility was near 0.
Almost back to the house and we find some kid stuck in a snow drift right in the middle of the road lol. It took a minute but we got him out and took off before he got stuck again.
Dirty Harry wanted to try offtrail to see what he was getting into and made it alot further than I thought he would. The snow and drifts in the woods were pretty sweet and it was plenty deep. He got stuck at the bottom of a hill, Bryan may recognize this hill.




And the picture we all wanted to see........

Harry never claimed to be a "talented" offtrail rider. Looks like he did fine, and you guys had fun. Harry needs some bigass skis on that tank. He'll float better then.

We had to push this kid about 30 feet to get him out of the drift he got stuck in.

He actually has bad ass wide skis, I contribute that to how easily he got around. They looked as wide if not wider than my powderhounds.

Looks like he's having fun anyway. Now that he's no longer a cherry, UP ride should be easy enough on him.

Put him some 10" wide Gen II Flexis on there. If they'll float the front of an Apex, the Storm should be a breeze.

I was really surprised (not to toot my own horn) at how well I did. I wasnt following Mud tracks either. I was blazing my own trail. Offtrail is fun, and I am definitely going to get an offtrail sled to rid in the future. Stormy did amazingly well though. But she is a trail machine. Heck, the pictures you see are where I had already dug out a bit, it was that deep.

Mud you care to tell them about our other experience or shall I?


P.S. The combination of me and my heavy sled cant carve worth a damn.

Don't expect too much at first, ask Rubi, your size and sled aren't at fault. Take your time and it will come. And trust me, you'll dump it plenty of times. I suck at it but still keep trying.

I know exactly where that is Mud, and what your favorite activity at the top of it is.

Yeah I like to smoke at the top of that hill lol, figured you'd recognize it. Was a blast and I really enjoyed riding with Harry.
I'll let DirtyHarry tell about our paint swapping experience and I'll tell about the drag racing lol. With my setup my sled hits a wall at 80mph and that's when Harry passes me. When racing someone I don't look back so I'm not sure the distance seperating us but I never saw him until I hit 80. As can be expected, when I hit 80 and he goes by he flies by lol. Nothing I can do to stop him or keep up lol.

lmao noone got smoked. I jumped him hard off the line whether my rmk track hooked or not and had him until 80mph. Anything shorter than 600 feet and he gets owned. I expected him to pass me at higher speeds but thought he'd hang alittle closer outta the hole.

I didn't look back, but he wasn't close enough to see him outta the corner of ma eye. He told me I got about 10' jump on him and held it until he passed.

He had a little under a sled length on me, but I would start to catch up pretty fast. Right around 65-70 I would gain on him.
I would spin at the start too.

I didnt call madcow drunk, but I did call him. Only the parts about the sled where correct. All we talked were sleds. Jerk.

So our little (real close paint swap experience) incident left us kind of skeert lol. We were racing along the trail and I am starting to gain on him. All day long I was having issues with my visor freezing and hardly being able to see any distance. (It was cold) So we are racing along all of a sudden I didnt see it, nor did mud really, a enormous snow drift was on my side of the trail. I really dont know how fast I hit it, but it was fast. I hit that thing and caught some major air..........in muds direction. Keep in mind I wasnt quite past him yet either. Mid air, I thought we were both done. When I landed I saw that we werent. Mud had hit his kill switch (good reflexes) and stopped. We both were shaking and laughing after that.

Holy shit! Sounds like Mud is a true winter motorsports athlete! Catlike reflexes and uncanny intuition. Watch out for this guy at the group ride. We'll all be put to shame!

I ALMOST got stuck, I saved it lol. There were some snowdrifts that were soo deep that when I hit them they'd slow me to almost a stop. Well one time I gave too much throttle and trenched. Nothing a little lean to the right and wot couldn't pull me out of. DirtyHarry should have played in the drifts alittle more but I think he was worried about getting stuck. As I was riding along playing in the ditches and snowdrifts DirtyHarry rode along side on the road lol.

As much as I'd like you all to believe I have the catlike reflexes lol, the kill button just happens to be where I grabbed to stop from falling forward onto DirtyHarry's bumper lol.
