I haven't owned a sled for the last ten years, but I'm looking to get back in the saddle. I'm leaning towards the XLT, I've heard it's a pretty good sled for the money. I've done a lot of research and I know about some of the more common problems, i.e. crank failure. Now here's my question, is the Extra-12 worth it? I can get a fairly decent deal on a '95, however it just has the standard suspension travel. I know I'll be riding this thing pretty hard, so I need to know if the extra amount of travel really makes that much of a difference in the rough stuff. Any other pointers or tips on these sleds would be greatly appreciated too. Thanks in advance guys and gals.
