Just took the first ride on my New Ski Doo 1200 X Renagade. I think it is really going to be a fun sled. It will take a few trip to get used to the engine braking but other than that its great! Cant wait till the trails open down here in SE Wisconsin, or the first trip up north

Welcome to the wonderful world of 4 stoke engines. Engine braking is cool.... you will luv it in & out in corners in the twistys. It would be difficult for me to ride without EB now that I'm use to it. I don't understand why all OEMS are trying to get rid of it engine braking as can save you if brakes fail at least the engine is slowing you a bit.

Being a diehard AC guy, didn't know Doo was making a 4-stroke 'Gade. Nice sled.

Get the bumblebee out in 4' of powder and come back with a ride report!

Damn it, maybe someday I'll give into the 4-stroke propoganda. ;-)
