• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

I got mine revalved, rebuilt, and the fronts shortened this summer by GSR and rode them yesterday for the first time. It made a huge difference, not only on the trail, but when sidehilling crossing ruts and old tracks. Very reasonable price, and a great upgrade.

The log home place is the right address. Dropped off shocks there last summer and picked them up there too.

If you go into Yellowstone Log Homes in Rigby, just tell them you need to drop some shocks off in Andy's box.
They'll direct you right to it and give you a marker to put your info on the tags in the box.

Hopefully he isn’t having medical issues.

The guy who did pulse injection on dirt bikes disappeared off the map after taking payment from me. 4 months later I got a refund from his brother I guess the guy almost died. 🤷🏻‍♂️

That was my thought, sometimes life kicks your ass and knocks you off course without warning.
Best not to consider your toys the most important thing in someone else’s life.
