Have been riding an 11 standard rmk 800 got over 2000 miles on it. Had to go in the motor at the end of last season. Snow checked a new standard 15 rmk 800 passing the old one down to son.

2004 Vertical escape 800. Not thinking of buying a new one yet because I don't go out west more than two time a year. I have a 99 rmk 700 that I'm looking to sell.

After years and years and years of riding AC, this year I made the switch to Doo. Spring checked a 163 T3. Can't wait to try it out.

I guess I better change my profile picture.....

Next sled will be a switchback assault 800 144"... something I can ride here or west.... may take a few years yet...
Moto, dont be affraid of a 155" or even bigger for riding here in the midwest! All my buddies and i ride ours here (if even lucky enough to get snow). We have a blast and no problems. Id rather fight a long track here, than be lacking out west. Maybe youre intending to ride more here though... I will be going with a 144" someday if i decide to have a second sled though.

Ride my '12 Pro 155 800, and hopefully picking up a holdover 14-15 this spring to replace it.

xcrider, you wont believe the difference from a '11-'12 pro to a '13+. You wouldnt think theres that much difference but you notice it.

I'm sure! Not worth it to do any upgrades to my '12... I like the newer seats, the boards, belt drive, controls, engines sound as though they're holding up a little better. All my after markets will swap right over, and, I'll be due for new top end, engine mounts, and shock rebuilds to boot. Was gonna trade this spring and snow-check, but the $ figures didn't end up where I would like them. I'lll be checking with my dealer to see what inventory looks like throughout the season!
