TGIF: snowmobile, warden, tickets and 2-up sadness

I’m thankful in two years I’ll have my 30 and won’t have to deal any longer with slednecks like these two.

I’m thankful the fine amount on this citation will wipe the shiteatin’ grin off this punk’s face.

I’m thankful I caught them when I did… anyone dumb enough to ride 2-up on one of these contraptions is bound to commit more criminal behavior.

And I’m thankful it’s Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.

TGIF: The snowmobile polo club edition

I'm thankful that Fred's inlaws from the Hamptons gave him a set of used polo clubs for Christmas. 

I'm thankful we convinced Fred to play with a ball instead of baby seals.

I'm thankful the team now agrees that we play our very best snowmobile polo, with the greatest forward progress, when we hold the clubs in our left hands.

And I'm thankful it's Friday, Jan. 31, 2014.

My Preferred ProCross Sled Set-Up

1/24/2014 11:31:00 AM

Finding my happy face with sled set-up.

Note: This is a companion piece to THIS SET-UP story I posted earlier today.

Midway through last riding season and now again this season, I’ve worked to calibrate my ProCross-chassis Arctic Cats to handle exactly the way I want.

For groomed trails, I want more positive cornering, with less push and less inside ski lift.
