    Sad....

    This place is dead. With this the only sled forum I have ever been involved in it is sad to see the state it is in at this point. A fricken I-Phone thread was the last posting in General and that was days ago. Snow is ready to fly and not a soul can be found. RIP SF

    A mountain lion roaming the prairie found a bull, killed it and ate the entire bull. With a heavy belly, unable to walk, the lion laid in the tall grass moaning and roaring. Soon a hunter, attracted by the roaring, shot and killed the lion.
    Moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut!

    Yep this site REALLY died after Erick sold it,SF was a fun and busy place back in its prime! Snowest and HCS are about the only 2 general sled forums left that still have some activity. Most people just use FB group pages now to get their info and buy/sell parts, some of the sled groups I am in have 60k+ members.

    And for those that were left after Erick sold out, many had problems logging in after the mandatory password change due to a data breach, and never got back on.

    Yeah beyond the changing of ownership I think the password thing was a huge hit. I don't do Facebook, as lame as that is, so being stuck in the old times of forums I guess some us will suffer. I should bite the bullet and sign on to it but I just don't want to. Corral.net, tractorbynet, SF, Badweatherbikers, and Sledfreak.com (for a while) are my time consuming internet homes, some more than others. Oh and we can't forget about NYFirearms.com but I haven't been on there much....FUCUOMO and your Safe Act.

    I lost my old account (crdude) due to the password BS.

    pretty much every forum site I use is completely dead. I don't understand why everyone uses FB now, it's so incredibly unorganized. I do use them, but mostly just to post pics & vids.

    i still check here often, but there's never anything new. For sled forums I also use HCS, and BCR.

    I just came on here thinking how sad it is that this site is so dead. I remember first joining and even a few years ago. It was such a good active site. Lots of good information. I actually just lost my facebook account. Not sure how that happened. I'm apart of facebook snowmobile pages, they are ok for sharing or talking about sleds, but for help they suck. Most dont know crap about sled performance but think they do and give people bad "help". I think the problem is anyone can join with a click of one button. Forums takes more steps than that. So its usually people who are more serious about snowmobiles.

    All I see on sledders is stuff about cans, headlight delete kits and led light bars. Which to me make no sense. People ask questions seeking help and half the responses are people trolling. Most specific pages on a certain sled are usually a lot better though on Facebook.
