Well, skidoo was not there. I looked over the 3 sections and Cat had the majority of people in their section for most the night. Most everyone was wide eyed at the 1100 turbo. $1500 option reg. $3500 option. The sleds look less like Barney the purple dinosaur and more like green Poos for 2012. 2nd largest group was in the Polaris section, with the rzr being a total hit. I do like the graphics on the Rush models. Do not like the orange color on the RMK. Orange is NOT a Poo color. Don't like the idea of having to pay big money if you want red skis's versus blk. ski's. And colored side panels or wraps are option for a price. Should come the way you want if truly a snow check pkg. Looks Like I am going with a 2012 RMK Pro 155 with elec. start in black. The retro (me being retro since first sled was a 1972 Polaris Colt) was not the right blue shade for me. The retro reminds me of the TXL models and the old Centerions. Only want the elec. start so I can hard wire my GPS up to get it to last all day. I love the color GPS with trail maps and topos that I have, but all that info runs the battery dead fast. And pulling a rope in the morning is getting old right along with me getting old. The section interest divide looked like 40% Cat, 35% Poo, 25% Yamaha and Doo was absent. For fun I got into the warrenty debate on oil with Poo rep., also made note of mounting location possibilities for a muff pot on the Poo Pro. It can be done.

The show or the sleds? the sleds are mostly proto types. Most the time the graphics change before they actually ship them out. seen that last yr. Such as the burnt orange look of the RMK. That could use some help in the color dept. The show was same Oh, same Oh. Beer $5 for 20 oz. $3 for 12 oz. MSA had a table there. The salesman I usually buy from drove 110 miles to be there.

The show. Took my daughters, told them there would be some good looking guy's there, ( I just wanted company to tag along ) I thought it would be a bigger more professional event . Instead I can sum it up this way, 4 groups of participants. Some guy's fit into 2 groups, 1) Brand Loyal guy's with all their manu's clothing , 2) Beer drinkers , 3) Younger guy's 20-something just looking due to empty wallets , 4) Older guy's with the cash 40-50 something ! I took pics of what I was primarily after and that was the the structural design of the new cats. I want to review them and chew on the integrity. I didn't like Cats front bumper, and the new chassis leaves me wondering. It looks modular , so if you hit something ( which we do in my camp ) theoretically you just swap parts. BUT... I wonder if everything folds , like the triangular framing in front of the bulkhead. I wasn't impressed with the presentation, they had an PCross 800 2- stroke, but not in the Snow Pro ??? Then rumor has it that you can't buy the " dealers show " model with the big cats head on the side . Just rambling on here. I did like the XF they had. I think I might buy a black PC 800 sp, then have custom graphics made for it ??? I wish you could order the sleds the way you want them.

Well without Doo there show was 25% smaller. It was more a touchy feel event. Way under staffed. One Guy from Poo and he blended in with the Poo loyals in full gear. found the same to be true in Cat and Yamaha sections. I went to check out actual sled color schemes, pics look much different than actual. I fit in group #4. There was no shortage of groups 1,2 and 3 either.
