    Thankfully they aren't on payroll yet. But they do have some great benefits. Yeah, I need to throw some Gator blades on those mowers!

    Buck your boys have the right idea. I have had enough of the white stuff for this year. Time for the shorts, sun and golf clubs.

    I run Skidoo for now. My next sled I may go with Arctic Cat. Not sure why as I've never had a problem with Skidoo and I grew up on them. I like the design of the Cat's I guess, and I really don't care for the new design Skidoo came out with, plus just ready to try something different. All my in laws run Polaris and they have an assortment of problems each year it seems, and Yamaha doesn't have many dealers around here. You ride?

    Up North,
    I run a Polaris XC 600 and have not had any problems, The rest of my family run Cats we have then in age from 1990 to 2003 and have had very little problems with them. I guess I can say I like the ride of my Polaris a little better. Give the Cats a try, they are nice, but dont rule out a Polaris. :bluebounc

    Yamahar612 & Chevytruck85,
    I wouldn't rule them out. My statement above about my in laws & Polaris is skewed and I should have mentioned it as they don't do anything as far as routine & preventative maintenance on the sleds. So I wouldn't be surprised if all their problems were due to neglect. In fact I have a Polaris ATV and love it, never had a problem with it and it's a workhorse for me, and it's maintained as it should. Actually, all the manufacturers are pretty close now days. I've also felt guilty all these years riding Skidoo when both Cat & Polaris are all made within 75 miles of me... :eek:

    LOL! YeahLarry, I may have to call in sick myself and send them out on a few jobs... :D

    No more snow except for one little pile out by the freeway. Believe it or not there's about 2 foot pile left from where the city dumped snow and it's covered with grass, dirt, etc. and has been insulated from the sun. Should be the last week of it though... :D
