OH $HIT, professional rider, do not attempt, we do this every weekend That must be Canada, they leave a cordory groom mark. This is exactly what we ride, miles of triple digit speeds...sometimes 30-40. That video was sweet, I am going to look at the Polaris also. The T Cat is going to sleep. The shots of the suspention at speed was great and floating over the dips is like jumping waves. Man that was cool, thanks.

The price is crazy, I bet they wake up and do something about that, No inflation but prices keep going thru the roof.

Did 1 strech for alligash ME. to ft Kent last weekend at @ 105 only stopped for roads nothing like the feeling of running 80 and grabbing a hand full and hold on!! 630 miles in two days with stops for fuel lunch and dinner and in the room for 9 pm ...Mitch Glad you liked the link..

Good luck getting any money out of the ZX chassis's or any triples. I was at the auction yesterday, I realize it a bad time of the year, and the 800 ZX's wouldn't bring over $2500. Ouch!!! The triples were a hole other story! I love my REV, can't see spending 10,600 on a sled, especially when it is not in the REV chassis.

I have a 00 Formula III 800 for sale $3500 obo

pipes, ported, clutched all the goodies

By the way, not trying to bash anyone. It just sucks, seems like sleds are not holding there value like they used to. It seems like if you by new, you get screwed! I buy new, who cares right, you can't take it with you.

you are right, mine is a lead weight dinosour but it is soo smooth at speed and just keeps pulling. I will keep it and use it for special occasions and friends..after i put a throttle block on it I bet the REV sleds at the auction will be priced right....someone will be trading for the Mach Z...I bet lots of them.
