Picked up a sled

Hi everybody. So along with my xx I now am the proud owner of a 2006 arctic cat m7 efi 153. I picked it up yesterday. It's in mint shape had an extra track an extra set of skis 5belts and a bunch of clutch weights. It's really nice sled and it rips hard. Now I'm covered all seasons a raptor killing t-Rex for summer and a powder crushing mountain sled for boondocking the deep snow we get here no mountains but I got stuck already in 4 feet of untouched powder. But it's cuz I suck at riding it still it's way different riding style than I'm used to. But I'm learning and I'm smiling so it's all good.

Oh Yeah! rider forward is different. Ive got a 06 polaris 900 switchback, just a little curve. Ive done 102mph on a lake but since we moved to SC they have been sitting in the trailer ( wife has a 08 600 RKM 144" ) tip: in powder stay centered over the track not sled and keep up the momentum. if you dont have paddles just the trail track step back a little further keep the front light so you dont dig the skiis in. have fun playing

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

Yeah it's got 2.5 inch paddles so now that I've relearned my riding style I've had no issues at all. And can actually carve pretty well already. The running boards have a sweet spot about a boot length back from the footwells. Just kick one leg out and put pressure in the sweet spot and the sled tips over nice and the back swings around. I'm loving it so far. Haven't even come close to getting stuck after learning that.

Nice Man. I have toys for every season, from boats to mud trucks, to quads/dirtbikes and sleds. Plus a few motorcycles. I don't have any long tracks like you, just a sno pro 500 ( the one set up out of the box for snocross) and a sno pro F8 which is a 2012 (the 170hP version). The 500 is studded, and is mad fun in the tight trails being so light and nimble, the 800 is a raped ape. I can be doing 80 down a trail, nail the gas and the sled will spin sideways, just so much power. We have finally gotten quite a bit of snow here in NY where I live, nothing like the lake effect an hour north of me, but yesterday I was hitting 3 foot drifts and jumping them, mad fun. Also was on a buddys MX track and was nailing all the jumps once I went around a few times to make a "track" for myself. Problem with these short tracks is, you need to keep up momentum and the front end up just to keep going through 2-2.5 feet of snow, unlike yours LOL. Wait until you get really used to the rider technique on it, put your opposite foot (say right foot on left side) on the very back of the grips, your correct foot swaying waying out, and do some twisties in the deep snow, where you put the front end up and lean it over and shoot right back around. So much fun. Remember if you have to stop in the deep stuff, try to do so going down hill. Good luck man.

Snoshoe, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are neighboring provinces. Sas is where Dirtwheels girl is from. Spent some time there. One of my last places I went with my last job was Chicoutimi Canada, about 7 hours north of Lake Placid NY, 2.5 hours straight north of Quebec City. I went up there in Mid April, and I left Detroit in shorts and a polo, got there and there was about 8 feet of snow on the ground. All the sleds there had electronic wheels that came down for their skis so they could ride right on the roads. Cool as heck.
