  1. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31359453/aaron-rodgers-want-return-green-bay-packers-sources-say I've said, for years, that Rodgers has had a free pass because the defense has been absolute garbage and the Packers had no way to overcome that in the Playoffs. All of that changed last year, when despite the defense doing their best to look like a pile of shit .... they DID get turnovers to give Rodgers a chance. And we all know how that played out! It's going to be interesting to see how this goes, but the Packers aren't going to let him go for nothing & who knows if we'll
  2. Agree with @mnstang - asking for advice on a sled purchase, you're gonna get a LOT of different answers. Whether it's 2-stroke or 4-stroke limits your brand choices. Trail riding vs. off trail and/or mountain riding changes things. Good dealer nearby that you trust? That last question is probably the most important, especially if you're going to depend on them to help if things go wrong.
  3. I guess they really didn't want a sled then ... boo f'ing hoo, I say. The program was due to end on April 15th anyway, right (Polaris, that is)? So why in the hell would a person wait until then if they know they want a sled. That makes zero sense to me.
  4. I bought the spring setup
  5. I ordered the One Rig setup for my VR1, but never installed them because I sold my sled. They're the ones with the mount/insert which fits perfectly into your rails and you can choose either the cable scratcher or double coil spring. Somewhat spendy (like $150) but a good design in that you don't have to drill any holes and it uses the OEM rail design. Here's the link to their site/product: https://www.onerigdesign.com/product-page/ssb
  6. I didn't ride mine, but felt like I went over it enough to get a feel for it before I sold it. Aside from the normal stuff (belt deflection, suspension setup (and sag), adjusting handlebars, etc), what were some items to look for and hopefully see resolved with the 2022 models? I know the 7S gauge was a bit glitchy, with the fuel mode changing for no reason & the fuel level being off, but were there other issues? My IFS springs were all the way loose and skis were tipped forward, which I ended up adding shims to alleviate (I wouldn't have really noticed either had I not put my sled on t
  7. I'm perfectly content with my helmet/goggle combo and not having to pony up $500+ for a new lid.
  8. Timing is everything (In your case Dave .... unfortunately). I think it was 2016 and 2018 model years snow check that I recall the promotion (and last year's mountain guys).
  9. I can't remember if Polaris offered the golden ticket for us flat landers in 2018 (I think that was the last time I got it?) but it's a tell tale sign something new will be coming out. Just look at last year's snow check and the ticket only being offered to buyers of mountain sled models. When I bought my 2018 Assault, I'm almost positive it included the ticket because I used it towards my Indy XC in '19. Definitely a great promotional / marketing tool ... and would be a welcome offering with the prices continuing to go up each year.
  10. Yup - had them installed on last year's sled and have them ordered for my XCR. I was just echoing Doug's comment about not needing them on the AXYS chassis if staying on the inner belt.
  11. I agree with Doug on the idea of not needing tunnel protectors if staying with just inner belt studs. I wish Polaris would go back to integrated tunnel protectors, but then I'm sure guys would bitch because it would end up being an added cost. Anyway ... don't sweat adding tunnel protectors - not needed.
  12. I was buying no matter what, because I was sled less .... but the golden ticket is a great promotion for guys who buy every year or two. I wish they had offered it this year, but given the market and overall demand there was no way in hell they were going to do it. They flat out didn't need it.
  13. I went against my better judgment, and opted for the 7s. I don't plan on using any of the phone features, or even the group ride stuff, but I do like the idea of the map being a LOT more useful than how it was with the PIDD. There's a couple trips I go on where I'm not 100% sure of the trails, so it'll be nice to have ... even if the majority of my looks at the gauge are to check temps and fuel level & trip meter.
