My wife rides a Skidoo GSX 600sdi and loves it! Push button start and reverse. An excellent trail machine. The ride forward position is really comfortable for her on long runs too. And is light enough for her to handle!

The F1100 LXR is a 4 stroke with similar horsepower output to a 2 stroke 600. They are excellent handling sleds and don't smoke like a 2 stroke, which some of the ladies like, as they don't go around smelling like exhaust. (Personally, I like the smell of 2 stroke exhaust). They are pretty light, as 4 strokes go, and have a nice comfy ride. You could also look at the fan cooled F570 two stroke, but in my humble opinion the LXR is a much nicer machine.

That 600 in the Indy will make that a VERY fun sled to ride! It's one of Polaris's better ideas lately!
