The Spyder - that's why I bought it - it's as close to riding a quad on the street as you can get (legally in CA), plus a whole lot faster. I was tired of getting bored from May to October.QM are you talking about riding the can-am on the street or your atv's? didnt think atv's were able to be made street legal in cali?
i have a friend that lives here in kentucky and works in minnesota at delta airlines. he rides a 400ex. he said and i quote "anyone that said money cant buy happiness has never ridden a snow mobile"QM, never rode a Spyder, and I don't know if you've ridden a sled down in St. Diago (thank you Ron Burgundy), but it would seem to me that it would be comparable, at least a little. Any insight as far as that goes?
I've never had the opportunity to ride a snowmobile... San Diego is a ways from any appreciable snow.
However, I plan on visiting Willy one of these winters so I can get the proper training.
Driving a sled can not be compared to driving an atv, they just do not compare. The stock Raptor is about 32 -25 hp, my stock Crossfire 800r is about 157 hp, I added a new style Y pipe and gained some 8 hp, spent over a day working with the clutching to turn it from a mild beast into a wild beast. Added 204 carbide tipped studs and installed snotracker carbides for steering. http://www.snowtracker.com/en/mounting.htmli have a friend that lives here in kentucky and works in minnesota at delta airlines. he rides a 400ex. he said and i quote "anyone that said money cant buy happiness has never ridden a snow mobile"
Dog, I know what you mean. I don't know what year it is, but my cousin has a mach z and has had nothing but problems with it. He bought it new, some years ago, and has not been able to get a full weekend or more of riding it without something crapping out on him. When it's running, it goes like a raped ape, but the thing is a complete money pit. I can't believe he's held onto it for this long, but he finally made his mind up to get rid of it as soon as he gets it back from the dealership.I havent rode the sleds much in a couple years but I just picked up a 2002 Pro-x 440. I got to find a trail head for it though as it is still set up for a race sled. Also will be trading my old 93 exciter for a 98 mach z. It is a nice sled, I had one Identical to it for a few year but they had a few problems. This one was my Brother in laws and he has had the whole motor rebuilt(Crank, Piston, Jugs, Powervalves) All new Idlers, track clips, Slides and rebuilt the shocks, CDI, and he traded it for a arctic cat z370. Now the guy he traded dosent like it as its to fast so he want my old exciter but I'll trade him, Mach z are nice and fast in a straight line but thats about all it was good for lol
