I just read the post on the trading my snowmobile for a quad.  I'm pretty close to doing that, but I'm still holding on to my sled.  

I think riding a quad is close to a snowmobile but it lacks the acceleration and hook up.  

I have a 600 sportbike, and man the acceleration on it is very close to that of a snowmobile, but riding on roads is not as fun as trails.

I just can't get into riding a waverunner.  Riding on flat, open water just doesn't provide a challenge or excite me.

Automobiles, I guess hot rods or custom trucks are fun, but your still restricted on their use.  I guess unless you were into drag racing.

We'll, let's hear it, what else do you guys have?

Got a 23' Nordic boat and love being on the river listening to tunes and have a few barley pops in the summertime. Scenery is not bad either!

I have a 97 Seadoo SPX. Love the GIANT Waves on the great lakes. I've been in 12 to 15 footers. I can try and post a photo. Don't know if it will work though.

When the water is too choppy to ski, its time to bring out the standups, the yellow one is my wife’s (550) she is bugging me to get her a faster one!  She’s a wild-one on that thing!

Mine is the 750, next to the yellow one, and in the background it zr800man (showing off his muscles for the ladies&#33
on the 650.

This is a cool post..I'm blushing now that skidoomaster put that picture of me up there.  This picture is of the boat I run (my dad's creation) all summer.  Member of Michigan Hot Boat Association but mostly run it on Secord Dam around Gladwin, MI.  This is a 18' Mirage that was transformed from outboard to jet...the motor is a custom built 502 built by my father and it runs around 92 MPH in quarter mile.  Takes a 100+ outboard to beat it!

Zr800man, skidoomaster - I live on Secord, and know the boat. If you guys make it up anytime soon, let me know and we can hook up. We were riding last week. 12" of ice, with about 10" of snow, but it might be bare by now. We were riding all last weekend.

I have an 89' 650 standup as well. I like it alot when it runs. Have had a lot of trouble with it this year but hopefully come summer it will be back in action. Hoping to buy an 89' J-22 racing sail boat this spring. Toys are expensive

I live in north western pennsylvania, but we have a cottage on lake kipawa in quebec. my cedar strip was built in powassan ontario in 1968. they still build them there. we enjoy snowmobiling in canada, but also like to listen to the loons well enjoying a cold blue, when  fishing for walleyes.
