Around these parts the snowmobile is a neccesity like my Zx14 is a neccesity.....Snowmobiles are kinda like motorcycles. For most of us they are not a necessity. However some people choose to live in areas that don't get plowed and therefore their snowmobiles are obviously a necessity.
Nice looking bike, looks fast. I know what you mean about folks putting $'s into mobiles. Where I live is one of the hot spots in this country for snowmobiling. Just to buy a new one without modding it is expensive. And since I don't own one it is easy for me to criticize them...lol. The new ones are looking like dirt bikes now since they moved the cooling to the rear...little bitty seats and a big unusable space behind the seat.Behold, a ZX14:
I have aquaintances around here who dump more $$$ into their sleds than i'd ever dream of doing to my bike. To say they take their sledding seriously is an understatement.
