I'll ask him tomorrow. I know for sure that he said that one of them does 130 easily. I should have waited until I got the hard facts before posting. I could be wrong. I may have confused the sled with his bike because he was telling me about selling all of the toys including the bike.
I didn't realize that those beasts go that damn fast.

I don't know crap about sleds but just thought that I would mention it.
He's supposed to send me pics and info.
Let me know if you are interested.

I bet you could get a Polaris up to 140mph if you dropped it out of a plane. What speed is terminal velocity?

Steve, you should take one for a ride, then you will get a chance to appreciate what the fuss is all about. I'd bet you'd be hooked.

I found a kit to help eliminate that issue for you. Did you ever get "that" place to cover them?

Dat,

I was looking through the snowtech last night. (New one) If I were in the market for a 440, it would be a tough call which of the 3 I would take. Although the Pol looks so stupid. I guess I could say no way to that one.
The specs on them are sweet. Perhaps I should consider picking one up next season for the throw around sled like you would do. I don't think they have any around here to view in person. They have got to feel pretty light now this year.

And you keep saying you don't have one right now. I thought you had an 800?

I'm sure they are fun but as I have mentioned before, I do not like anything that has to do with snow or cold.
Anyway, I got a bit more info. One sled is a Polaris 700XC and the other is a Yamaha SXR700. Both are 2000, piped and picked, and the Polaris has some kind of special head. He is starting at 7k for both and the double trailer.
He also said that both of them will do 130mph and the Polaris is a bit faster than the Yamaha.
It's the Yamaha bike that will easily hit 140.
(That's crazy man).
He's selling the bike too.

We all suffer from exaggeration when we report our sleds' top speeds. I can pretty much gauranteee that even a piped Yammie SX-R 700 has no hope of hitting 130 mph - I'll bet it will barely crack 100. I had a piped 2000 SX-R 700 and I own two different radar guns.

I'll second that, no chance in hell.
