Last week, Arctic Cat legend Roger Skime was presented a very special gift on behalf of everyone at Arctic Cat: a 2017 Arctic Cat ZR 6000 RS (Roger Skime).
Serial number 01.
The ceremony took place at Arctic Cat in Thief River Falls, Minn., during a pause in the day where all employees came outside and paid their respects to the man who was so instrumental in the existence of the brand.
Only a couple hundred of these special snowmobiles were built prior to last season, in honor of the man himself. It’s fitting and cool that Roger now has the very first one. Know Roger, it will take everything in his power NOT to ride the sled, because Roger wants to ride every sled. Really.
But I have a feeling that this machine will remain unridden, which is ironic when you think about it.
Congratulations to Roger and the Skime family. Likewise, congrats to the other lucky few who own RS Edition models.
Roger is presented with the sled by Craig Kennedy, VP of Snowmobiles.
VERY cool! I need to score one of the Roger Skime little posters…I always loved that old pic of him!
Outstanding!! Thank you Mr. Skime for Arctic Cat and all you have done for the sport. My passion for Arctic Cat will be forever because of you.
He told me he will keep it at 0 miles. And he said he’ll put it in his living room. (Was he joking about the second part? I doubt it!)
Congrats to an ARCTIC CAT legend and Icon. Roger you have done so much to promote Arctic Cat and the Passion of the sport. Pure Arctic Cat all the way. And yes I bet his blood flows green.
Is Rogers hair green?
Roger also needs sled number 02. Collector pieces are nice………………… But Riding is what it is all about.
Rodger for president 2020. he’s got my vote.
