Well, last year I had moved back to the north, from the south. Yes, on purpose. When I got back, I had the opportunity to purchase a snowmobile for a very good used-price. This machine is a touring machine, meaning, it’s not super fast, and it’s not for racing.
I have family who have cottage in WAY upstate NY, with trails, so I thought a touring mobile would be great. This is also one that is a 2 seater, so I can take a long a rider. Convenient if you are going touring and someone doesn’t want to drive their own.
After I got this machine, I realized how much fun you can actually have in the snow. This one is light weight, it’s a lower end model. So, I have no problems with controlling it. However, since it is a lower end, and not too powerful, you have to be careful getting caught in deep snow.
If you have ever been on a snowmobile path, or created one of your own, you know that fresh snow, is soft, and can be deep. This may have some problems getting you out of really deep snow. But that’s not what its meant for. It’s meant for trail riding, and touring. That’s exactly what I use it for.
This is extremely comfortable, and as I said, easy to handle.
This is a 2cycle machine, so it’s a bit louder than the newer 4cycle machines. But wearing a helmet, sound is not a problem. It’s an electric start, and I have not yet had a problem starting it. I’ll have to update this, once summer is over!
This has a 12 gallon gas tank, and I can go the whole weekend, without having to refill it.
This has adjustable Hand warmers, and let me tell you, they do work.
So, if you were thinking about a beginner machine, and you like the idea of touring, rather than speeding, this is a great choice. I am glad I found this one, it’s great for me.
