Default snowy michiganders....

Thats right we actually recieved some snow here in lower michigan.. We got 10" today. Just got done riding around like a crazy man Nothing like running WFO through subdivisions


over last weekend I put on 240 miles, I am getting happier with the sled. wasn't to impressed with the hookup with 192 studs... more going in tommorrow

Whats the snow gossip around the state?

192 is plenty for that 800

Glad you got to tear up the neighborhood a bit

I have alot of studs bent, I am putting in 24 more down the center, trying to releive some of the stress on the other studs. Gonna give it a try atleast.

!!!!One question for you guys..!!!

I have a sled cover that has road grime all over it. Have you guys put these covers in your washin machine? Or will it run all the yellow and black colors together and end with a puke colored cover !!! I can't have a dirty cover and dammit no money for a enclosed

Thanks for the info mitch.. Don't know when we'll go riding, my paycheck for the week doesn't let me get past our house up at the lake I must be throttle happy cause with this 800 and 9.5 gal of fuel I get about 70 miles to a tank.. sucks can't go to far without running outta gas I am headed back up to the lake (oscoda) tommorrow, Talked to my uncle last night and they had 8-9" and it was still snowing as of 9:00 last night.


sgrady. Most of the time I ride around oscoda, glennie ect. We have a home on the lake in oscoda and its nice to come home to a warm house after riding around in the snow I live in flint and don't do much riding down here, first decent snowfall was yesterday.
