You mean that? I have a feeling it would be a good way to get hurt. It used to only come in a kit so they weren't liable.

But until you got hurt it would be one helluva ride.

Trees don't make the greatest brakes...
I don't see how it would be that much more dangerous than a dirt bike.
only problem with em is they only come with a 500 fan. i guess they're pretty snappy though, with such a light dry weight. anyway, that's about 500 more cc's than i need to get myself hurt on one.

it isn't a sport if you can't die doing it

being a MX racer I'd love to get to take one for a spin.

a 500 fan is all that thing needs as you can plainly see. And it is more dangerous than a dirtbike because you are riding ice and packed snow. In case you didn't know these two things can be pretty slippery. It is prolly more safe than riding your dirt bike on the same stuff but less safe than a normal sled.
if you ride one of these the way they are supposed to be ridden (i.e. NOT on ice or hard pack) they would be a blast, and probably pretty safe once you get used to them. just think of boondocking through some trees in that baby! or playin in 3' of powder! sounds like a good time to me.

I would give it a go myself it does look like mad fun :)
if it comes with a nutcup im go

Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!
I would think that your feet could slip off quite easily, but I could be wrong.

Obviously it isn't for the ordinary snowmobiler. You have to be a (rich)motocrosser by heart and need something very similar to do when the snow flies.

I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. I mean, if you know how to ride dirtbike and snowmobile, this is a cross between the two so you should be able to get the hang of it rather quickly. Hmm, I wonder where I can ride one....

I really would liek to see tucker on one of these babys he kicks ass on both mx and snow so i think he would rock on this best. But to say the least they are sweet and will cetch on huge cant wait to see ktm with one heeh i wish!
Yeah, they will eventually catch on I think. People will think of them as a stand up watercraft. Only it is a version that goes on frozen water!

I think it's a hopeless attempt to create a dirtbike that can go on snow.
