    Another Day Another Fabrication

    True story....and I never figured it out, but after watching your sis and Kelly smashing a chair over a buddy's head I wasn't going to question the track suit look.

    Helmets?

    They had a recall on the first run, goggles had a bad foam seal. I noticed through trial an error that when stopped for a period if you left the mouth piece closed your hot exhale would find its way into the goggle through the vents on the underside of goggle. Open up mouth piece and I never had a problem.

    Helmets?

    How cold was it? I bought this helmet for a Wyoming trip. First time with an mx'er. No fogging issues after I learned to open mouth piece when stopped. Take goggles off when working out a stuck sled. Light helmet, no snow dust issues was the biggest plus. Nice to have 2nd goggle for sunny days, no sunglasses to fight with. Don't understand the mx peak, maybe keeps snow off your face? Doesn't work as sun shade as some say and you get a lift or push when driving at speed. Don't trust in extreme cold but I used it up to minus 18 with no problems or fogging. Full face for anything beyond that temp. Everyone I've ridden with has got frost bite with an mxer...

    2019 Polaris reveal

    For the Doo lovers, haters, most of my riding buddies are doo, doo. 6 blown 600 etecs in the past 5 years. Couple of no start 1200's on the cool northern nights. Some 850's are belt eaters.

    My new 800 assault blew a jack shaft bearing at 1400 mls. Havnt done that since early 90's. It seems to be common problem. If this engine was buult to the same standard...well let's just say I carry a tow rope at all times.

    Skidoo blizzards, 129 inch track. Renegade at 137 will give you equal mileage

    Real World MPG

    900 ace is a 3 cylinder four stroke. 600 etec is 2 cylinder, 2 stroke both get very similar mileage and will go over 300km with some gas to spare. 600 when pushed( Cochrane speeds) will run equal with the 800 etec. About240-260 on a tank. Both sleds run regular fuel.

    Real World MPG

    900 ace and 600 etec are the best around and will push 300 km. On that same Gaspie ride the wife's 900 took 30 or 31 liters at 240 km

    Real World MPG

    Easy 200 km on a tank, last year in Gaspie it was pushed to 240 km between fills and it took 36 liters to fill. My new 800 assault it getting dry around 200.
