Just bought mine this year. I've been riding it for years though. Got it off my bro who has owned it since 1994. Great sled for its time. Just need to make sure to keep the battery in check.

Last pic my bro took before selling it to me. His 4 generations of Polaris Sleds:


Just pulled it out of storage this last weekend (Cell Phone Pic):

I've had to jump my sled before with the riding mower! Haha, I also had a 92 Polaris EFI. Decent sled, not an Edge but not crappy

Bro had a really nice 92' Indy 500 EFI for a little while last season. Sometimes she was a tricky sled to start but it ran really nice! Very responsive and sounded great! It was a pretty fun sled! Way too many people bash them. Like said, keep the batter good and maintenece in check and you'll have a very nice trail sled! I'll get pics later, as I'm at school.

I plan on doing lil by lil to mine. I just got a 2in riser and some handguards for this winter. Might get new handlebars too (something a lil more straighter then the old wedge boomerang ones). I'm planning to upgrade to a newer seat/tank, plastic skis and xtra 10 rear suspension down the road. I was even thinking of doing something custom with the hood if I could pick up a spare white one for cheap.

probably around the yard. most of wisconsin got hit by an early storm that dumped 2-8 inches on like a tuesday. it was gone by the weekend.

they just finished putting up the trail markers up here last weekend.

Yep I just took a few laps around the yard with the XCSP we had. Sold it now though as my brother is at college and we didn't need 3 main rider sleds. We only got about 1-2 inches but it was enough for me to zip around the yard for 5 minutes. It was worth it!
