That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Put The Boats Away And Get Out The Sleds. You Have To Do Some Tihing In The Winter. Otherwise You'll Go Nuts.

    You can always chase the wife around the house more. There was ice on the window yesterday morning, forgot and left the truck out overnight.

    I'm not done boating yet.
    We were out sunday tuning on the new FAST EFI.
    What a great engine management system this is.
    The motor starts in less than one revolution and idles super smooth.

    Ran it up to 105 on this little local lake, I'm surprised no one called the sheriff.
    A woman called the sheriff on me once in July because she thought I was skiing too close to her boat.

    Takes a while for the motor to warm up in the cold water (62 degrees) but I'll take it out at least once more.

    Hey Adam What Kind Of Sled Do You Have?? Yamadog, Pussycat, Polarass, Or Skipoo?? Just Currious. I Would Like To Take A Trip This Year With My Brother. Mid Michigan Was Assume Last Year. Almost As Good As The Up. I Have A 97 Mach Z, The Bro Has A 01 Edge 800. He Lags A Little In The Straits But Makes It Up In The Corners.

    Nothing special, I like polaris you know.....Pull Off Lake And Repair In ShedI don't ride very new sleds because we don't get very good snow around here, although we did get a good winter last year.

    the ditch bitch is a 93 polaris indy efi with a aaen pipe, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, cut head with a thin head gasket, home ported, "custom" cold air intake and gutted air boxand a lot of clutch work. that little sled will do an honest 100, pretty good for a little 488.

    my lake sled is a 94 polaris storm 800 with slp pipes gearing reeds clutch work and again the "custom" air box. I've never had to crack that motor open until this fall so its still stock but I blew a belt last spring and it took the crank seal out, so time to get the die grinder out.

    I got some john deere liquifires from when I was a kid too but we take it easy on those.

    We Have Got To Hook Up This Winter, And Do Some Riding. The Only Thing Better Than Doing 70 Mph On Water, Is Doing 135 On Ice And Snow.
