Yeppers, I have purchased another new sled. I traded off my '08 Dragon 600 on a 2011 Pro-R Rush 800.

I don't have actual pictures because I don't think it's actually built yet. Dealer figured I'd probably get it in October.

As soon as harvest is done, I'll be praying for snow this year!

Good for you, you will have to do a write up on what you think of the new 800 and what issues you might run across over the winter.

Did your dealer treat you pretty good on the trade or as good as you can expect from a dealer.

[thumb]The sled has a really aggressive look to it. I think it's a good looking machine. Look forward to seeing some pics of it when you bring her home.

Now I feel like I'm riding a relic! I seriously loved riding the Rush last winter. I think I put more miles on it than my own sled, and prefer it, but of course, would make a few adjustments... taller handlebars being one of them.

No doubt you'll love the sled. Congrats dude!

My biggest concern with this machine was the 800 motor and it's tendancy to want to explode. The machine has a 2 year powertrain warranty and I still have my Switchback so if it does blow up I've still got a sled to ride.

If it's problematic, I can give it the boot and take a nice look at what they offer in 2013.

I've always had pretty good luck though so I'm not too worried.

I hope it rides as good as everyone who has ridden one says. It was extremely expensive but I got a HELL of a good deal. (trading a sled to a dealer in August is a good idea, I'm not letting the terms out but I think I made out exceptionally well, on a monthly basis I'm paying less for this Rush than I paid for the Dragon when I initially bought it).

As for letting others ride it, I have a feeling that's gonna be a common request this winter. Lucky for me, I have no problem saying "no". It's a well-used word in my vocabulary. [:D]
