Just put the first 50 clicks on the odometer. What's fucking blast this thing is to ride!! I switched up with my buddy for 5 miles, he has a GSX 900ace. All I can say is :lol: fuck that dog!! My XCR is the cats ass!!! Love this thing so far!!

You are in a whole different class of riding sled.  There's not much to compare in those two.  Welcome to the "sports" side of motorsports.  BTW, if you find yourself frequently lining up with other sleds for a drag race or start to brag about your mileage for the year, you have the wrong sled.  :bc:

Bringing this bad boy home tomorrow!  

Thought I might have spending the night in the woods for about an hour today.  Finally got it out and roasted up some red hots trail side.  Epic weekend.  Some great climbs, some bad stucks, lots of l

I'm the 18B

I used the bigger model all season in Alaska to text with friends and family back home. Worked well but had some glitches. If you only to communicate in emergency situations or to give a basic check-in to the wife/kids then they work really well. Thankfully I never tested the SOS feature.  :bc:

Pretty cool capabilities for sure.  We're out of cell range just on the sleds, camp in town has good cell coverage, so I only got it for emergencies, if we get lost or broke down out in the woods.  Couple years ago, we were close, when my turbo blew up, about 10 miles off the trail system in 4 ft of snow.  :lol:

Way too thin here still but I couldn’t stand it anymore. Took the wife on a 50ish mile round trip to lunch and back today. Most miles she’s put on in years.

i don't believe so they listed them as HPG shocks believe only the HPG+ are rebuildable.  Doos fucking crazy on their shocks to push the X/XRS sleds.

Was reading the other day, some dude who had upgraded the shocks on his Lynx cuz the stock ones were supposedly junk.  OK dude.

First ride this year for the wife and I. Small section of trail opened by my house. Couldn’t go far but good enough for her to get a bit of seat time on the new machine.

those are some of the best shocks ever made,   retard should have had them revalved,  prob too stiff for him as Lynx are meant for cross country riding. I am sure doo took them down a bit from whats sold in scandanavia but not by much.  i had not rode my XRS in harder trail conditions till last weekend(warm and soft the weekend i bought it last year) and i was softening it up  on the compression,  need adjust the front skid shock for more bite next time i have it off the trailer.

I'm sorry, but 96% of the guys who spend 3-4 grand on aftermarket suspension are fucking retards, who can't even get the full potential of what it came with stock, or could have been configured to.  I bought those Exits for the rear of my Backcountry from Perm for short money, like a third what Dennis originally paid for them, and they're just alright.  Just figured it was a cheap upgrade for my base model shocks with almost 2k on them.  Thinking I wasted my money lol

What a difference a decade makes...used to be a time when I'd show up at my house @4am shit faced and half crash my sled into the snowplow bank. Now I show up @midnight sober and capable of driving people home and walking to the bar 2hrs before closing. 

Not sure which version I like better. :bc:

3 to 4k yeah dumb but that said when you get in season. Doo they are mostly junk shocks buy the stripper version take the shocks off put on some fox and pull em before you sell and slap em on the next one until they don't fit any more . I find a decent set for a modern sled don't loose that much value few hundred a yr at most .

Thats the plan.  Torn whether I want to keep this sled and get a fresh one next season and keep this one for a spare or friends to ride.  Honestly, its set up as good as any I've owned for me, but I miss my turbo that I put the 1.75 track on.

I no longer head up when I see those temps. Really no point in it.

They think it will make them better riders. Their body shape is the problem and not the shock. Most sledders you see should be on two ups with the back rest moved forward for a single rider. They ride baggers in the summer and think they can ride sports sleds in the winter. They plant their ass on the seat and just steer,0 body input . I’m sure we have all been stuck behind this typical rider,until it’s safe to pass Of coarse .:lol:

yep, there is a wood stove in there and bench seats along the sides. There used to be a few of them around but this is the last one left.
