brother had a Skidoo Formula 500 for a bit, was fun. A good enduro dirtbike is more common here, would probably take a lifetime to cover all the open country just on the island, thousands of logging roads.

My uncle just got the top-of-the-line Skidoo I think. He tells me it's scary as hell.

Where do you intend to ride it? While my mountain cat 1000's 2" paddle track (it WAS 2.5", but was cut) dominated in powder, it was outright scary on the hard packed trails. Not only did I drift around corners, but I also had the rear end kick out all the time on straight line accelerations.

A stud job will take care of that though.  Cheesy   That mountain cat was the only sled I rode that wasnt studded.

I will mostly ride it around here in the fields and on the lake.   If i ever do decide to go to the mountains I will put a 2" track on it.  I wanna get some seat time before I even consider going to the mountains though

For what you want to do with it it will do fine as is. A word of advice if you want to take it into the mountains, get wider skis. Those narrow stockers and that heavy engine will nose dive you and bury you under 8' of loose powder if you arent careful. I sank that heavy 1000cc pig a few times when going too slow in deep powder. I went with a wider set of skis, with a MASSIVE keel, and never had an issue again.

I never liked hooks, but I LOVED the center loop.


Also, why not polish the tunnel yourself. Never Dull rocks.  butt rock
