Most of the guys that work for me sled every chance they get, I have'nt been out this year but have been invidted a few times. I dont have my own sled but can use my buddies Powder extreme RMK 700 anytime I want.
Here'* some of the guys from work, they got a side business on the go.

P-dad..."Powder Extreme RMK" ??? Thats a new one..... Just messing with you. Arctic Cat makes a Powder Special, but thats not a Polaris RMK... Vertical Edge? Vertical Escape?


I had a custom 1997 Polaris SKS 700, everything from the hood to suspension was new or custom., but the motor blew for the second time this winter so we parted it. Now I ride a 2003 SKS 700..and my husband has a heavily modded 2001 XC SP 800....motor is totally built, custom 144" stretched rear skid, custom painted hood, on and on....

Thats our real "favorite" hobby....we're making the 12 hour drive to Idaho for some mountian riding since the snow around here has been junk.

Not a model I was giving but a modded description, nothing stock on most of the machines around. Most guys run 2" paddles but some trail ride with 1 1/4" and most are long tracks.
Artic cat just went by, you can drive on the side of road in town up here
At the lunch room at work one guy got a new Ski Doo 800 Summit rs-x with the long track....158 or something......guess its under 500 pounds and easy to take up into the mountains. Everyone one was saying its a pretty hot machine, not sure of his mods but he has done some engine work.......he lives about 5 houses down from me.

My husbands sled...cant seem to find any of mine of photobucket. OH well. This started as your average old guy 121" 800....

This was right after we stretched the rear skid to 144" and put on the punched 2" track.

i HAD an arctic cat... late 70/ ear;y 80 i dont member i sold it a yrs back.. paid $400 for it and sold it for 400 after about 3 yrs of riding it... it was a 600cc, looked like SHIOT but at least i didnt have to worry about anyone stealin it!!!! and when it was super cold out. >less then 0 it would take for ever to start... and it didnt have pushbutton start..... so you have to pull and pull and pull then you arm hurts so ya go inside to warm up then spary with starter fluid then pull and pull and it would finnaly start... once ya got it runnin it was good to go for the rest of the day....
