In Watertown I've seen the cops driving two what looked to be Polaris 550 Tourings. They were all decked out with the Police outfit like lights and the whole deal. Miker told me he saw a DNR up near Lutsen with a 2003-2004 RMK 800 in the back of his truck. I wouldn't try and outrun him let alone any law enforcement. It's plain stupid. And also according to Miker I drove by a DNR officer in town where the speed limits like 25 mph I think. And I didn't know it was a DNR officer. He was on the other side of a road and I stopped at the stop sign like I was supposed to, but when I got to the other side of the trail I gave the people (which I didn't know one of them was a DNR) enough room to safely go by them and I pinned my sled right once I got next them and went ripping out of town, down the trail. I looked back after a while and Miker was putzing along which is very unusual because usually if I take off, he knows I pay more attention to things so it must be safe. So I slowed and he waved at me to stop. Mike came running up to me and told me that one of them was a DNR officer and I guess he was just staring at me while he was talking to the other person he was with. So needless to say we hauled our asses out of that area and got off the trail and into the ditches just in case. Otherwise I always seem to get lucky and actually be going the speed limit when I see an enforcement officer which isn't all that often.

I think most of the tree cops in minnesota ride sleds that have been confiscated from idots who run, or drink and ride, stuff like that. I know that's how they get their boats and stuff. So if you don't want a Dnr officer riding your sled next season, pull over.

In Ontario, each and every detachment/precinct is different, each year they sit down and see how much of their operating budget they can alot for sleds/equipment. if they have officers who are qualified and willing to patrol Ontario trails and they can justify the expenditure their off and running, here in Eastern Ontario they run low end Polaris touring machines 500/550's, last year at least. Like its been stated before nothing outruns a radio. As per shooting not in Canada unless the officer feels that his life or a life is in pertinent danger they are prohibited. Now the USA is different, they shoot anything that moves, don't they? LOL Joking guys..

usually when they try to stop you its only because they couldnt see your regestration or something along those lines.. why run? in the end you'd prolly end up in a tree AND still get caught.

Around the Adirondacks they have RX 1's.
I was riding once doing 55 in a 35 zone and I saw a arm stick out fom the brush all of a sudden, it was a radar gun I learned later. They guy radioed to a gruop of cops that were hiding on a side trail 600 yards up. They pulled the use over at an intesection a mile up. I din't get a speeding ticket but my buddie who was in front of me did. They were real jerks, giving me crap about my registration stickers on my tunnel[:(!]
They had it all planed out and everything they probably pull people over all day[:(!]
It was in Moose River Plains by the Big T intersection.... if anyone knows were I am talking about, watch it.[:p]

around here they drive skidoo 600 legends. but one time i was driving along on the trail and some guy pulled up behind me with an old skidoo tnt and he had his lights on so i pulled over and the guy just slowed down and then he passed me and zoomed dowm the trail. i was kinda confused but laughing at the same time because the guy must have been really bored so he painted his old tnt white and had all custom police decals made just to pass a sled that was faster than his. to that day i.v never seen that sled again.[:D] i think he must have gotten in a load of crap by the cops for trying to copy a police officer![:p]

I agree, no police officer will shoot at a person unless they are a threat. Theres a little thing called a "radio". they talk to dispatcher or watever, and have a Squad car go to the next road crossing, and pull you over if its needed. Sometimes they may not even try to "catch" you, and maybe they do. Trust me. if the police need to get ahold of you, they are going to. As for sleds... all ive seen is Skidoos, and they had 670 rotax motors in long track sleds. the sherrifs ride them up here.
