Today I sold my 1993 storm......kinda sad to see it go, it was my first sled, and I learned a TON on it, and had a ton of fun. I am requesting a moment of silence..........................................................

Ok now a 21 Rev salute!!!

Your first sled is the one you will never forget! This holds true for me.

talkin about first sleds?

First one I ever rode on was a 1980 Yamaha Enticer 250. Still have it.

First one I ever purchased was a 1990 Arctic Cat Jag AFS 440. My buddy is still riding that one.

After that I had a 1994 Polaris Indy 440 then a 1996 Polaris XCR 440 SP and now a 1998 XCR 440 SP

my first sled i owned three years ago and it was a 1972 Mercury Max 440. Man that thing could tear up some shit for how old it was. My second was a 1974 Arctic-Cat 250 El-Tiigre...Man I love that Small Twin with twin carbs. bas Ass!!!! My third was the same as Polaris-Mans First...1980 Yamaha Enticer. My fourth was a 1978 Scorpion Sting 440 which i still have and ride but its my grass drag sled....I love that thing. And now i have what i have now...my 95 XLT Special. GOD I LOVE SLEDDING.......Whats cool about my first four sleds is that i got all of them for free. ALL OF THEM were "junkers" in peoples back yards that they gave me, and on all four i just cleaned the carbs, gas tanks, and put new plugs in. All of them ran perfect. Isnt that sweet!!!!

The ZL is actually the first sled I've ever puchased.All the others were dad's and brother's.My dad still has the 87 Enticer and the 97 Panther.Wish he still had some of the real old ones.

First sled i rode was a 77 Ski-Doo olympic 340, then onto a 1980 JD 440 Sportfire

After those two i finally purchased my first sled, a 1981 JD Liquifire...which i have beat the hell outta and gettin ready to put the motor back together once again.

And the first Sled i bought new is my 2000 Indy Triumph, Love this sled, rides and handles great, and nothin is better than the 600 triple that sits under its hood


Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.

The first sled I rode was a 1972 Scorpion Super Stinger, which we still have. Then MY first sled, given to me, was a 1970 Ski- Doo Olympique, man those were fun, then it was my INDY Lite 340, then the first sled I BOUGHT was my 96 XLT Special. How old were you when you got the Storm IA? Not exactly a beginners sled but hell, If you could handle it, WHY NOT! hehe

Just got it at the beginning of last year.... Yeah not a beginners sled but I am glad I got it....I have always been really gifted when it comes to driving anything with a motor.....Last year was my first time on a sled ever, and my friend who has been sledding all his life thought I would have trouble keeping up with the group on the trails and such, but it turns out that now I can out ride him anyday of the week!! The way I see it if you don't go big why go at all? Anyhow having the big,raw storm forced me to learn the right way to ride right from day one, as opposed to easing into it with a smaller sled. Oh and I was 19 when I got it by the way. Ok I am done rambling now! hehe

I rode a lot of different sleds when I was young. We never owned one, but the winter vacationers brought all kinds. I would get to know the vacationers and join in when asked. I finally am back in an area that has snow and bought my first sled. XC 800 SP, 2001. It is bigger than I had intended to buy, but like intendedacceleration said, if you are going to go.....go big. I ride MotoX and the transition was pretty easy. I kept up with everyone else pretty good. By the end of the season I plan on leading the pack. Let's hear it for AIR TIME!!
