What an idiot.

Dude, at least he wasn't hurt by that, but I officially give you the right to give him a broken nose and a black eye.


That sucks man.

thanks for the support guys, it feels good to know that someone understands how i feel, i was really concerned about him at first but after i knew he was ok i got really frustrated, i mean, i got just enough time on this sled to have it pretty much dialed in and then then this, i need to chill or i'm gonna have an anurism. i'll be in traverse city, mi this weekend. i hope i can get my 96xcrsp back together before then. if not i'll be on either a yammi500xtc, or artic cat sno pro. not bad sleds, but i really was lookin forward to beatin up on some sleds this weekend. if anybody is out at the airport in interlochen on saturday look me up i'll be the one frownin so bad you can see it through my helmet. i shouldn't say that, i'm sure i'll have a good time anyway.

Yeah, that definately sucks man. What the hell was he doing anyways, I mean how did he acutally crash into a garage...they're pretty easy to spot. But like you said, at least you've got some spare sleds to ride while your new one is being fixed.

I'd have a restraining order put on the dude. If he comes with in 500ft of your sled in the future, he gets arested! lol!!

I feel your pain dude. A few years ago I let a friend ride my "new to me" sled. He rode up the street once, Once! and then a telephone pole jumped in front of him. Right! It almost totalled the machine. He was not hurt at all. Maybe a bruise. I didn't yell, I just gave him the cold stare for about a week. He asked me to yell at him or something. He paid for it all "cash wise" and then emotionally too. We are still buds, but never be sure your bud can ride.

our first trip out my dad let my Uncle ride the VIper. He was moving came flying over a hill and at the bottom of the hill was a groomer. He locked it up and stopped just in time. I came over the hill and with my crappy brakes locked it up and slid sideways down the hill. Lucky man.

I let my future brother in law borrow mine all the time. He a little erratic and did some front end damage back in November.

I got new plastic skis, trailing arm(left) and full bushing kits, and a spindle out of him. It was a pretty bad hit on an unexposed rock. Sled is good as new minus the decals on the trailing arm.

I did the labour but that was fun to me.

Then I went out and smacked him on the nose with a rolled up newspaper!!

Yeah that sux when someone goes out and does something like that. Well i won`t lie i`ve been on both sides before. Lickily tthe two times didn`t involve snowmobiles. The first time i let my friend borrow my 400ex he took an s section of a trail hit a tree and flipped it. I didn`t care about the four wheeler because he broke his arm in 4 places. OUCH!!!!!!!! Then the next day when i wanted to borrow my neighbors 4-wheeler i hit a tree with it. So i`m not proud to say that i have been both sides before

good news guys, after a better inspection i found the suspesion was not tweaked but the ski is. actually i think the dual runner carbide on the bottom is bent wich is tweaking the composite ski.the factory skis suck anyway so i think its time for a set of c&a pros, i was gonna do that anyway. after some serious buffing with a rough towel and some 3m vinyl conditioner the scratches arent noticable, and no decals were harmed. new handlebars only cost 34 bucks i'll pick them up today. after the aftermarket windshield cost to fix it will be less than 125 dollars(HE WILL PAY). so i should be riding this weekend, OOPS! I FORGOT NO FREAKIN SNOW NOW!! I CANT WIN! anybody wanna buy a new xc, lol JUST KIDDEN! i'll ride it in the grass if i have to, hyfax are cheap!
