  1. Chassis are nearly identical. I am sure you are aware that the Viper and 7000 class are nearly the same sled other than some component changes. I have a Viper LTX (137) and ride with friends with AC 6000 and 8000 class as well as the 9000 class machines. Components, ergos, seats, lighting, skis are all the same. Weight and setup are the main differences. And the 6000 is where a person really notices that. It will feel like a much lighter sled as it is. Performance is on par with other 2-stroke 600's. The Viper/7000 class sleds will ride solid on the trail when setup correctly. If
  2. This is a good question, as tips are truly that, tips. These delivery services get paid for delivery, Uber eats etc. Yes, the others are paid min, plus tips. But let's do some quick math, it was a small bag, so not pizza. So if the tab was $32-$40, an $8 tip is 20-25%. I would say I am a frugal guy, but not cheap. 20-25% is not out of line Covid or not. So unless we knew what the tab was, we can't make that call on if it was an appropriate amount or not. On the flip side, assuming she is going to get 20-25%, she should have done the math before accepting the delivery. 12 miles in
  3. I would agree, for the most part he's pretty accurate. I share my thoughts on these forecasts with my Facebook sled group only after I have averaged the forecasts from 4-5 others. Once I do that, you can get a pretty good picture on what may or may not happen. Keep in mind, up until the day these storms or weather patterns hit, they can always change. But his have been pretty darn close. And guys gotta remember to read the text, the picture is only half the story, as he explains what has the most likelihood of changing
  4. Helping a buddy pick up a "new to him" 2007 Venture Lite for ice fishing. It should be perfect. I am quite familiar with the first year of this engine, as I spring ordered a Phazer FX in April of 2006 and put over 4500 miles on it before selling. What can I expect for first year issues? I am a VIP member over on Totally Yamaha, so I will check there as well. Just curious if anyone has any sound advice. It has over 2400 miles on it, so I am assuming if there were any first year bugs, they have already been worked out. Thanks guys!
  5. I will start the representation. I'm on my 7th Yamaha now. And my skin is thick, so I can take anyone's shit. I drive a purpose built sled for the way I ride. And I respect all other brands in the group I ride with. First Ride in Minnesota!
  6. Thanks for starting this up! And thanks for allowing me to join in.
