Last week eight friends and I gathered for day of snowmobiling on the CJ Ramstad North Shore Trail.
There were World Champs, I-500 champs and one media guy who has no credibility. In other words, we were a bunch of chumps.

There's no way to fully honor a man who has so singlehandedly shaped both Arctic Cat and the snowmobile industry.
But there IS this stunning, cool and commemorative Roger Skime-Edition 2017 Arctic Cat ZR 6000!
It's (very) limited, it's in the new body plastic and it's just the kind of lightweight, premium-performance snowmobile that the legend himself has pursued for 55 years.

Ride along with Tucker Hibbert, Dave McClure and Rob Kincaid as they rail, roost and launch the new Arctic Cat SVX 450 snow bike.
See the process and the machines!
At last, Arctic Cat has launched their 2017 line of snowmobiles!
It will be a year that throws more than one surprise, both for what machines it is offering (new Thundercat!) and for what it isn't (read the story).

I'm thankful the streets are (finally) safe.
I'm thankful I'm NOT the guy sitting backwards on the Diablo Rouge that's leading this hit parade.
And I'm thankful it's Friday, Feb. 26, 2016.
Snowmobile softball...of course! Actually, this is pretty dang cool. And I can imagine some pretty funny situations occurring, especially someone trying to steal home.

The kids, aged 7 through 20, were born with cognitive or developmental disabilities, and they were PUMPED about the day!
The event is called the Region 5 Special Olympics Winter Carnival and organized by Confidence Learning Center in Baxter.
