RMK is not a trail riding machine, it's a mountain machine.

What you need is something like an XC 700 SP. Good handling, 700 cc's with exhaust valves, good speed and comfortable.

That's the Polaris machine for you anyway, if you want a Cat or Doo or Yami you'll have to ask someone else.

I'd be a happy man if i had a 700 RMK.
Yes, i would still want a trail riding machine though. Polaris-Man suggested a 700 XC SP, and i totally agree. Good luck!

I'd have to agree with paulxlt except on the Cat. Even though I'm a Cat Rider the ZR700 is out powered in that 700 class.
I'd have to recommend the ZR, ZL or ZL800SS. And you would'nt have to worry about being the under powered sled in the 800 class.

Hmmmmm I don't think Cat makes a 700 anymore. I just bought the 2002 Zr 800 EFI by the way. For just all around easy riding I would have gone with the Ski Doo however.

Every review I`ve read this year put the MXZ 700 ahead of the pack. Check out the latest edition of Snowgoer. It has a comparison of the new 700s

For Trail riding I would have to go with a Yamaha SXviper. Really fast looks cool and has a great rear skid. They were selling them for cheap if you snow checked one not sure what they cost now.
This is the only sled I would consider giving up my Big A/C for.

These are all the high performance sleds from each of the big four. but each company also has a sled that is a trail machine that isn't the premo sled. It all depends on what and how you like ride. If you want to go mach 2 with your hair on fire than one of the above is for you. But there are others that will give you plenty of bang if you don't feel like you need all the latest and greatest. I don't know any thing about you or really how you ride but I know that I ride with 3 other guys mostly and given the choice not all of would pick the biggest and baddest . I would but my old man wouldn't. He's probably more of a Vmax, ZL, type of guy.

Like I said just depnds on how you like to ride. I would think that any of the trail machines would be dramatic improvement on the trail vs. your RMK. Depends on how much coin ya wanna spend too.

if your a small guy maybe you should get a 500xc, or a 550 classic. I dont know how big u are, but im 16 and 6'4" and i know these sleds are pretty nice, they haul, handle GREAT, they have some nice trail power, and arent a big 700. lighter too! that means easier to steer and handle

Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!

The MXZ is the lightest. For a small rider, this should be the easiest to throw around. I think anything will seem easy after riding around on an RMK.

I want to ride every day, all day, as fast as I can.
