That's funny as hell and so true. For the rest of you guys, I'll give a little back story. Most of the time I ride with this bud who is a "numbers person" in every possible way.  He farms a

Yes , I think that is what I said ,without saying it.

All of it, all the time.  My sled corners like it's on rails so no need to ever let off and keep the turbo spooling at all times.  Sled is also playful when at full boil, roosting and cat walking.....

I know you are lying because it's a Skidoo... they can't corner without changing all the springs and pulling the limiter strap.

that's why they don't add a recoil as std equipment, too much unnecessary weight to move around.

is it easy to drag the front of them around with the adjustable carbides fully extended?

wish I'd have taken a picture of the brand new piled up MXZ XRS last winter in Hayward that couldn't turn apparently and was piled into a 10"w maple tree.  everyone in our group, which were all Doo dwarves except me couldn't figure out how the hell it happened.  Apparently the rider should have been using your technique. :roflcrying:

You can ride a big bore quickly on the trail, but not aggressively.  With a smaller engine I get into a better flow with the trail and don't need to be as cautious when braking into corners and you can throw caution to the wind a little/lot more and ride with more aggression.

I can ride my zr900 pretty hard all day and never exceed half throttle.  Or I can ride something smaller and be pinning it before the apex and drifting through the entire turn absolutely trying to maximize the machine.  Both are fun but totally different styles, the ride is usually more interesting and engaging on the small sleds.

Big sled, more precise and controlled

Small sled, loose and crazy

I keep try to do a colab through Brett but it hasn't worked yet.  We could meet somewhere in the middle and then ride drunk from there.

Some people travel the world to help poverty kids or whatever nonsense.  I save 90's fan cooled Arctic Cats

So what you're saying is that you can ride the slower sled at 10/10ths of your ability but probably 7/10ths on the faster sled.

And the front end is so weak it falls off before it can even attempt a turn

That off set the counter balance and it still won’t turn. It will direct it self into the trees and you will need an 11 year procross if you want to steer and not break anything

I like to roll coal on all the small cars and lesser pick-ups when I’m heading out riding in my lifted F350 diesel. I require the 1 ton to haul my big dick around. I’m always spooling up cause that’s how I drive with my tuner set at max power. Then at the trail head I offload my turbo sled and spool the shit out of it on the stand just to see the slack jaws turn their heads. Then it’s straight to the lake to race for pinks. I use every bit of power every bit of the time when I’m riding the sled. The throttle might as well just be an off and on switch. There’s nothing in between for me.
