Decent snow conditions (for once)....
« on: February 20, 2019, 03:12:55 PM »
My cabin has around 3-4 feet as a base, with light snow falling every few days. Just came back from a long weekend ride and saw some of the best trail and off trail conditions I have ever experienced in my area. Feels good to buy a new machine, and actually use it ! I have over 1,000 miles on the new sled so far, and I hope to get 1-2 more rides in before the season ends....

Here are some pics of ride #1, just after Christmas

Last few from the first ride of the season. Have lots more pics from rides 2,3,4,5 but no time to download right now.

Hoping this site does a rebound, b/c she's been barely alive lately....

My brother is up near Land-O-Lakes, Wi and sent me this yesterday. The satellite quite working so someone had to go up on the roof of the cabin and shovel it out! :thumbsupsmileyanim:
Looks like it was easier getting down than climbing up!

I'm bringing a 25 foot roof rake with me b/c I was having some ice dams form and water dripping into the greekshack.
DB that build the place back in 1999 installed the metal decking direct to the roof rafters (no plywood / no ice water membrane). Place never had heat or power until I purchased it, so now I'm having some issues when the heat is on..... I usually don't complain about 4-5 feet of snow, because it typically sheets off the metal roof, but it came down all at once and it seems to want to stay up on there for some reason....

1,000 miles on the new sled this year and 200 miles on my old one. Having a decent season !  :thumbsupsmileyanim:

My 600SB is an awesome machine! Really happy with it thus far !

Unfortunately, I decided to run my 600REV last weekend in hopes to get 10,000 miles on it. At the 9995 mile mark, she let go  :'( Last five miles were on a tow rope back to the Greekshack.
Gives me something to do in the off season I suppose.....  :blush: It's going to turn into a back up / kids sled.....

I've got a 06 or 05 gtx 500SS with a virgin motor in it.  its been parked in the hangar all season.  was seriously thinking of selling it for cheap.... if your looking for a motor donor you could get a lot of other parts too.   Dr. Greekenstein - the cadaver is warm

When you say the word "Virgin" it sounds like a complete lie.
Kinda hoping to throw a top end kit on for under $300........ and keep it as a spare sled.....

Low 50's starting 03/14/19, but still more snow in the forecast later in the week.
I'm hoping to get one more ride in, even if it's on my own property ......
