You definitely did get a steal, but I don't think he really cared how much he got, I think Missy just wanted it gone since he was getting a new sled lol

I knew the truth would come out. when rock was thinking about it all we heard was "wife driven" i only rode easy trails and some playing around with the kid in the yard".

now that its sold the storys are more like" jumped the house with it once and won that bet" had the manifold red hot and glowing one night after a hard run across the lake at wide open for 10 minutes"

I would love to go to the U.P. but its hard convincing the wife to let me go 2 weekends in a row.The S.F. ride is always the last weekend in Jan. and the Nutz ride is the first weekend in Feb. I know Cuzzi and IBS will find that to be true soon enough!

Rocks son will find out how the Dragon performs. That is until Rock is sick of watching the insane shit he's doing and decides Dad better keep that sled for himself lol.

Yes, this season will depend on how long I have the assault. As long as we have no issues with the 800 then I'll keep it for a few years. But if I experience problems this winter I doubt I'll keep it the whole season. The Assault will be determining what brand I ride next year, if things don't work out I won't be riding poo any longer.

But should the 800 stay together for a full season then next year it will be boosted and I don't forsee selling it. Eva.

Shit are you kidding. We got the other sleds out and cleaned up last weekend, we've already started the "vroom vrooms" lol. Shit, Shane has already went through a tank of gas in the 120 mod lol. His sled wasn't in the garage but about 5 minutes and he was handing me the wheels to put on lol.

I look forward to it, Shane says it'll happen this year too. He looked alittle big on the 120 but I'm optomistic to think he can handle the 500 lol.


Get them outdated triples ready Brian.

Well I'm bored, and you got me thinking about the new sled lol. I guess the salesman can't check the computer and the manager isn't in today, he said they'll check tomorrow and see if there is an updated ship date.
He did tell me they are already recieved a couple of their 2011 snowchecks. Last week they got an RMK Assault and Rush so mine should be very soon!! I asked if I could come check out the Assault and he said they haven't even uncrated it yet. I hope he understands that once he tells me its in, I'm on my way to retrieve it.

mud, when you go to pick up the sled, take a few minutes to have the service manager talk with you on it. sounds silly since you are coming off a dragon, but, you never know what things they might be telling the tech at schools, lots of tips and little things you might not get from the owners manual.

make sure they double check oil pump settings, clutch alignment, ski alignment, toe in and stuff like that. some dealers take for granted the factory did it right, some dealers actually do there job.
when i worked at a deere/polaris shop we were more than happy to visit with a new customer, i used to absolutely love when the sales person told me to go out to bills farm to help him get his new combine or planter running. more times than not the farmer knew what he was doing, just wanted some support in a few decisions.

They will be running sir, i gotta get Harrys address, the rails are the wrong year. My dealer said the changed mounting points on some of the years. The extra on the RXL and the extra i bought from you dont line up. They may work for you. So i either send them to Hairless or you? They RXL is running, altho i still gotta move the suspension a 1 1/2" backward and then put the extra in my Storm. But i gotta buy the track for the Storm. Later Gater

A boosted sled for low elevation is dumb in my opinion. Unless you plan to take it out west all the time it isn't worth the money.

So maybe you'll be on a cat next season? I hear the new M8 is gonna top everyone's shit.

If things don't work out with Poo I'd like to find a new skidont to try out, that and yammi are the only 2 I haven't ridden new. And I can't see ever buying a yammi. I don't anticipate any problems with the new Assault, it'll go everywhere Slanteye does on his M8 in the yoop. Maybe even more?
A boosted sled is a boosted sled is a boosted sled, dude what else needs to be said about that?

When I bought the Dragon they went through setup with me and answered any questions I had, they'd better do the same with the new sled. I can't do the setup and still have a warranty, he said they have to do the setup. I'll be going over it with a fine tooth comb when I do get it home, just like I did with the Dragon.
