Hi All, This is John (30yr/m). I am new here and to the sport (although I ride once a year). I just got a place on the VAST trail in South Vermont so I am looking to upgrade my life with my very own sled. I will be getting an Arctic Cat b/c there is a dealer by me who does pick-up/drop-off service and all that. Super important to me as I learn the ropes. I need to learn how to care for the sled after riding, breaking in, and after the season so I will be reading alot of posts on this forum - they appear to be very helpful.
Right now I am looking at last years models XF 1100 141 SNO PRO LTD and the F 1100 SNO PRO LTD. I am not sure what to get my wife but will probably get something on the cheaper/slower/comfort side since she wont ride much and I will lend it to my friends sometimes to ride with me.
I will be back with tons of questions and posts and replies.
