Time to go riding. Gonna head out here shortly and get everything organized and head up to the hills. Should be riding by 10 in 3 feet of fresh stuff. Not enough by all means but enough to go tear around and be constantly scared of those rocks.

Anyway...I will be back this evening with pics.[:D][8D]

Well the snow sucked. Always weary of hitting rocks which I did hit about 3 pretty hard and heard countless others. Need a couple feet more to make things more enjoyable. We had 11 in our group so always lots of help getting unstuck. I only got stuck 3 times. I am not used to this type of riding or the sled but got the hang of it towards the end of the day.

Talk about brand loyalty. Polaris Racing cap, Arctic Cat gloves, standing on the Yamaha.

Just a random pic while stopped taking a break.

Going down the pipeline. I was lucky and didn't hit the massive rock right in the middle there. Someone else got there first and stopped to point it out.

This guy was blaming his 900RMK on him always getting stock. We just think it was the rider not wanting to turn back downhill.

And the moment you have all been waiting for. The first review on the Vector. First impression was "This is no Pro X2." It felt real doggy, big and heavy. After I got acclimated with the sled and learned how to ride again it started to get better. It has an awsome powerband. Really consistent throughout the entire range. It sounds pretty cool too so I'm told. I actually think that it vibrates more than the X2 did.

I am going to need to do some fine tuning on it before next time to see if I can get a little more out of it.

Also, the gas consumption was real close to the M7s. I had alittle under half a tank at the end of the day. And I love in the owners manual how it tells you to break it in. No way can I ride under 6500 RPM for the first hundred miles. Break it in how you are going to ride it.

glad to see the Yamaha out and finally ridden. looks like the snow was good but no base ah? better hope it gets worm quick and keep all that snow as base. great pics.

I was just about to ask how the 900 rmk was running but then saw he was constantly getting stuck. tell him to put a clutch kit in it to wake it up. but I guess the sled is only as good as the rider is.

Im going up myself tomorrow but for riding. putting the camper up at the lodge and bringing my sled to the poo dealer to get a reflash after the pipe.

also from the looks of it I think you got more snow than Pance lol.

He just got a new pipe and a can for it, different brands. I didn't catch the whole story but he thinks that it was the combination of the 2 that was causing him problems. He is bringing it in on monday so they can figure something out with it.

Ya, there was no base at all. Constantly fearing hitting rocks and did hit a few. Hopefully this settles in and we get a few more feet on top of it.

One of the guys was sidehilling, hit buried rocks similar to those and turned him straight uphill. These rocks are massive and will destroy you. Not like midwestern rocks where 99% of them will just be a mere nuisance.
