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.
