Welcome to the madness. Be sure to post a pic of your new ride after you pick it up, one with dirt/mud on it is preferred.

Oh dang 3 feet. Everything recently melted last week and on Friday we got about 6 inches which on Sunday was still just soft fluffy snow and made for the best riding I have ever had. I'm completely stock including tires and was busting through 3' tall drifts by about 10' in length. There was a few hills that I couldn't quite keep up enough traction to get up but I was very surprised at how well I got around in the snow. I think I surprised all my buddies that were riding with four wheel drive engaged most of the time.

yeah the one im buying doesnt have much for tires. the stockers are about half wore. i'm looking into ordering a set of razr's immediately.

im stoked. waiting for the mother in law to come pick up the 3 yr old and then heading to the dealership. should be home, riding and frozen within 4 hours lol.

edit: nice display pic lol

got it! got home in time for an hour of riding. had to stick to the snowmobile trails and the roads.. but its got way more power than i expected lol. i had to lean into it to keep the front wheels on the ground through 2nd and 3rd gear.. haven't needed fifth yet!
the tires have maybe 30-40% tread left.. it handles fine on the snowmobile trails but sucks on ice. think i'll order some 10" ITP's this week.

so far i friggin' love it!
it hasnt had a valve adjustment since new, so its definately due for one. gonna have that done this week.
convinced the dealership to throw in a new helmet too.
