Nothing beats a good day in the mountains!! What I don't understand though is why everyone says they get stuck so much when riding in powder...???

I've ridden an xlt with a 121x 1 1/2" track for the last 9 years in western and central Montana and I've finally reached the age to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! In January a friend and I went to Big Sky and rode Buck Creek Ridge after a 3' dump. I had my xlt and he had his rmk Vertical Edge. I was one sad and sore fellow. It's true that the rider has a lot to do with how the sled performs in the powder but under some conditions even the best rider is going to be humbled. C'mon Crazy, give the flat landers a break. Anyone from the west that hasn't been laughable stuck and stripped to the waist digging out just isn't having fun no matter what you ride. btw crazy, do you ride a CMX? Just curious because I see them testing them in the area that I ride evey now and then. One Cool Sled Have fun this winter people.

Is there a good 1.5" track that will work good on the trails also? And how big of a difference in handling is there between a 136 versus a 144? All comments welcomed here guys/gals.
