    I know the fealing. Yesterday it was almost -20 celcius that's around 0 farenheit. We're not used to those kinds of temperatures either. My truck wasn't very happy about it either.:mad:

    We're at 0 now, got everything started. These modern diesels sure start a lot easier than the old stuff! No ether required for anything, they groaned a little, but started.

    John, what kind of snowmobile do you have? What size is it too? I used to ride snowmobiles alot years ago when we owned a few older Yamahas. We had 2 Bravo 250s, one was a 1982, one was a 1984, and we had an Enticer 300 from 1983. The Enticer was a twin cylinder and it was pretty fast for back then. They were all bought new and man did we ride the crap out of those things!!! Mike :)

    Nice, sounds like you guys have alot of fun!! We used to have so much fun riding nonstop. Id be frozen in position riding out there, my parents would come get me and tell me to come in, you were out long enough. I was like no, Im not done yet!! They were like arent you cold?? Im like nahhh, meanwhile Im frozen!! I was at my local Yamaha shop the other day looking at the new Yamaha snowmobiles and there is one that made my mouth hang open and drool some. Its a 2003 Yamaha RX-1. Its got the R1 streetbike motor in it and supposedly can go well over 100MPH. The sled is absolutely beautiful and why shouldnt it be for close to $9k?? Mike :drinkup:

    Sorry I did not see this thread earlier, I was out cutting the green in this wonderful 19 degree weather... JK.. :D Gets down to around 0 at night and sometimes below that with the chill. I used to have some sleds, not in a while though, anyway they would be sitting like the plow is so I guess I am not missing out as of now... :drinkup: Stay warm.
