Hey I am a newbie to the board and pretty much to snowmobiling. I bought my first sled in November of 2002. It is a 1996 Polaris XCR 600 Sp. It had 900 miles on it when I bought it and it now has around 1,200 miles. This sled seems fast, but I can't really compare it to anything else since all the other sleds I have driven were 20+ years old.
