Hi,

Just a silly question my daughter asked last night, but I can't answer.
Do all Polaris letters designate something? For example:

Theres the ever famous XLT - xtra lite triple
Then Theres the RMK - Rocky Mountain King
Or the SKS - Snow King special

But what do the others stand for?
Theres the XC. XCR, RXL and so on. I can figure out that an F designates a fan model of a previous code (XCF)

Hope someone can answer this ?
Like I said - it's just a silly question but I really makes you think
Thanks

XC -  cross country
XCR - cross country racer
RXL - Racing experimental (Something like that I can't rememeber, 70's)
EDGE - Excellent design = Greater Excitement
TXL- (Can't remember what it stands for)

I used to know them all but forgot most of them know. I remember the EDGE one from when Polaris debut the '99 XCR 440 and thought that is was pretty cool that they were still trying to use the acronyms. Hope this helps some but the RXL and TXL has have slipped my mind but RXL had something to do with the Polaris race sleds from the 1970's.

My buddy has a saying for the letters POLARIS, I can write it in but it is considered brandbashing.  If you okay it, I can post it.

ArticZRT600,
    Better not post if its derogatory but if its pretty harmless like GMC being garage mans companion or FORD being found on road dead then that would be fine with me. I dont really think anyone would be insulted by that.

If people can't take a little "ribbing" then they need to learn to ease up. You can dog Polaris all you want but over the last two race seasons my Polaris (ATV & Sled) have towed a friends sled over 5 times. I think most of his problems is due to lack of maintenance.
Here is what I say to people that "bash" other brands: "It doesn't matter what you ride as long as you are riding and having fun!!"

Here it is RNM2399, if you find it unfit remove it, thank you for your consideration.   If this offends some I am sorry, it is not meant to upset anyone, it is just a joke.

                            POLARIS:

                            Pissed
                            Off
                            Losers
                            Always
                            Ride
                            In
                            Second

I would add something to the effect that it doesn't make any difference what you are on as long as you show up when the talking is over, there is snow on the ground, and it's time to go!

I can't believe a lot of people are shy to bring along their brand X, and ride with a bunch of people that are on Y's

Go figure!

All the guys I ride with, none own a Polaris.  I don't know why, I especially love the 95-96 XCR, white of course.  I never had a chance to own a Polaris but I know I wouldn't mind it.
