Great pics Eric!! You do have some from riding with your brother don't you?

Favoritos, great shape? No fricken way! After every dig out, there is at least a fifteen minute catch your breath break. LOL. Lance and eric may not need it, but Joe and my brother and myself do! LOL.

Ridesafe, Skylar or Lance:

On the pic titled "Lance had a good stuck". I noticed the Switchback has holes drilled in the black area that wraps around on the side panel and the access cover. What is this for?

I just bought that same snowmobile and hope to be able to ride like that soon! still getting used to it though and need some experience!

Yep Brad it has been a very fun year.Lots of good memories were made! From trail brushing last fall, to the "ride in" and all the other riding we got in. Not only up there but around home as well!

Skylar & favo..if I could I'd have a tank of oxygen mounted to the sled...a BIG tank may be needed for the old farts like me! lol!! Yep pics from the brothers trip are going up next.

doospunk: thanks bud! hope all is well on the home front. :-)

Snowdance, they are there to get engine heat out from under the hood. There are also vents in the shock tower area on both sides to let cold air in, especially on the cutch side.

Skylar is this being done as a precaution or is there a problem with it overheating?

snowdance: they're not overheating just getting cool air in there.
