from the UP of Michigan from a snowmobile trip and whoa, there is 5 feet of snow on the ground. Not including drifts. Finally hit 102mph on the sled. It redlines at 8200 rpm and I was going 102 at 7900-8000, so I might be able to sqeeze 105 out of it down hill. It was the best trip yet. I fell off 2 times. Great fun!!

No offense, but 100 or even 70 on a sled is stupid. Takes but a branch or hidden rock in the trail to kill you or you to lose control from a gust of wind.

Wow, thats wierd. We met two guys on the trail and rode with them for 150 miles. They were from Grand Rapids. The first person to post in the thread, a Grand Rapids resident.

Was on a lake but I do go 80 on the trails. They are groomed daily and anything less than 70 would upset other sleders.
