  1. Hey Snobeeler, FWIW, the 2019 promos only apply to "in season" sleds so if you found an XRS or X it wouldn't apply. I think more favorable to the $700 cast back on the 900s is the 0% for 60 months they added in March to the 900T promo. That 0% equates to $1700 savings in interest if conventional financing is needed. When 0% is offered, I'll always use someone else's money while mine works for me. As for prices, I bought my GF a 2019 Blizzard 600R for $9,750 last month. I was comparing that to a 600R red Enduro at $10,700. Both those prices were with the $1500 cast back that's on the 600 vs. the 0%. There is a 900T red X with 1.6 and quick adjust listed at $13,888 near me. Doo really stuck it to New England dealers this year and made them take a lot of inventory. My dealer has nearly 50 sleds in stock and I see lots of other dealers with loads of stock. I'm wondering if Doo will help them by making the 2019 promo better in the later half of this month.
  2. Whatever you do, don't feed it after 10pm. You will be in grave danger!
  3. Pictures!!!! I have taught you well! Wish I was there. Alicia and I had a great weekend in VT though. We even took my buddies new 900 Turbo Grand Touring for 20 mile loop.
  4. Hi Jack, the Up North Technologies Dual Position Ski-Doo 129 Adapter solves the problem for just one LinQ position on the 129". I have this on my Indy XC and it rocks! Oops, I should have gone to the next page and I would have seen someone had posted it!
  5. Hi Jack and Sandi, Sorry I missed you this year! I split the ride home and stayed in VT last night and banged another 150 miles out today in the NEK. The NEK is exactly like QC only completely different! LOL. Look forward to reading about your rides this season. Terry a.k.a. SnowCrazed.
  6. Last day in RDL. Sadness. Great time for sure! Until next time mikerider!
  7. Pipeman, this is Polaris 600 #4. The other three were Switchbacks ('14, '16, '18). I'm not sure what changes Polaris made, but the 19 must be better cluched or something else because it's buttery smooth vs. "jerky" from 0-speed like my 16 and 18 were. This sled is also the fasted top end of all the 600s I've had. The 600s have been good to me mechanically but I have not kept them as many miles as my past Ski-Doos. That only happened because I went from the Rush platform in 14 to the Axys platform in 16 and had the golden ticket for the '18 and '19 sleds. Powder and/or rail beds are not kind to MPGs with the 600s. While Mike is enjoying 19 MPGs, I'm getting 11 to 12 MPGs. For me, it's not about the extra cost to run, it's about having to make an extra stop for gas everyday. Honestly, if I was riding up here more than once a season or doing the Gaspe loop, I'd be better off with the 800/850 for the extra MPGs and top end on the rail beds. For my regular riding area of VT and NH, it's perfect.
  8. It was tough going twice today but still a great day!
  9. Nice of the sun to visit today. We wrecked a lot of freshly groomed trails today and I'm not going to lie, it was fun!
  10. The snow guns and wind machine finally shutoff this morning. We saw the groomer go by packing while at breakfast, so we headed out for a short ride and visits to the Polaris and Ski-Doo big kids toy stores. One of those RMKs or Summits would have been great for today.The wind machine is back up and running this evening.
  11. While my ask for warmer temps fell on deaf ears, the snow request worked and is being over delivered. Morning ride to breakfast and back. It's really starting to come down now.
  12. Good to be back at RDL. Can someone turn the heat up just a smidgen? 😎 Camera didn't come out much today.
  13. I've been waiting for this post and updates all year long Jack and Sandy!! I hope our paths cross this year again! Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Years. Terry.
  14. MPG might be much better with the 129 (vs my 137) and no studs. I get the Poo oil for a whole lot less than $50 (and the Doo oil isn't all that much cheaper)!! It's time for a change buddy!!
  15. This looks awesome mikerider! That's an all new rear skid and suspension - the early reports are it's better than rMotion.
  16. I shot a GoPro video of my ride on the "X" model 900T. This is the shortened version. I get roosted by the 900T in front of me and shortly after that was where I could stretch it out a little. It was not pinned.
  17. My Bv2S is an XL and the Oxygen I tried was a Large. It was pretty tight and I would opt for the XL Oxygen vs. the L if I was buying one for myself.
  18. I'm disappointed they didn't put the 900 Ace in the 129 G4 and I don't understand why they don't put the non-turbo 900 in the MXZ X. Except for 8 or 10 days a year, all my riding is in the NEK and northern NH. There are two 850s in our group, one is an Adrenaline gade and one MXZ X. For the trails I ride most of the time, I can't exactly explain why I don't care for the Ski-Doo 137 and yet love my Polaris 137 (as well as the 129 MXZ X). One thing is for sure, I'll be keeping the Polaris another season (unless Polaris announces a 129 Axys Monday night).
  19. I went to the NH Snodeo Friday and rode the new 900 Turbo in the Grand Touring, Adrenaline, Enduro and X versions. Wasn't very crowded so I kept riding them over and over. Also tried an 850 Enduro, 850 Backcountry X Renegade 147, XRS 850 gade, X 850 gade, mid-season MXZ 600R and the Blizzard 600R. I really wished they had a non-turbo 900 in the gen 4 to try... My impression of the 900 Turbo is if you have a 1200 now, you will be very happy and/or love the 900T. Great power, no turbo lag, can't even hear the turbo, sled gets quieter the faster you go. It should be no surprise, the 900 Tubro feels very heavy compared to an 850 or 600 in the same chassis. In general, I find the Gen 4 steering to be heavy feeling (it certainly is heavier than the steering on my Pro S Switchback) and the 900 T compounds that. Of the four versions I rode, I felt the "X" package rode the best. I also got to try the new Oxygen helmet out on the trail. It is noticeably lighter than the Bv2S and quieter (there is additional sound protection in it). I didn't find a great improvement of left and right visibility but the visibility looking down is amazing. Heated visor and plugged in is mandatory (or cracked open). I closed it not plugged in and it started to fog right up. My favorite sled of for the conditions and trail type was the Blizzard 600R. The mid-seas MXZ 600R is way too stiff for my likening. The new 600R is very different than the older 600 e-tec. Most notable is no engine breaking like the older 600.
  20. I think no offering of 4 stroke in the Gen 4 129 is a big whole in the line up. Looks like Alicia will be keeping her 900 Blizzard for a very long time.
  21. If mike ran out of gas, it wouldn't be the first time!
