new toy?

Post by donny »

hmmmm... my sled is dead! i want to go fishing but need a machine to get around. looking at a couple sleds around 2000$ they have electric start and reverse,which i need to be able to operate now with my back. but what i really want is this http://www.strmotorsports.com/showroom/ ... index.html it will do everything all season! anyways thats my pitch for sherrie :shock: i would rather put 2000$ towards the atv? and walter may give me a deal! its a extra 1000$ for the top and doors and window 8-) wish me luck...

that adddress may not work i am looking at a new kymco atv 500cc uxv, like a rino type atv. hot!! i was in it at the bike show.

have you talked to walter lately? That would be awesome if you could get a sweet deal on one. A side by side would be great to have around the cottage year round.

hmmm... not good! reverse blew up or something.making real bad noise! found a few bolts that have come out!! shit! and track or drive chain sounds bad when i give it shit? :( this sled is really powerful,it has a new track and just spins when you hit the throttle hard.i never had a cleated track b4 but with this kind of power it needs it to keep it straight when you give it shit i do not like cleats for a few reasons,they are much harder on the clutch ,no more sliding out rear end dounuts!and becareful when stopping and turning fast, cleats dig in and you can roll. it will be a adjustment to my riding and no doubt cost a few bucks!. but better fix now b4 catastrophic failure.

Wow! Nice pictures....I wish I was there! Your cottage looks so different in the winter. It's very cozy looking. I'd love to be hanging out in there beside a warm fire watching Quadrophenia! Even without catching many fish, you gotta be having a blast with the new sled and all that snow. I've very jealous.
