I always enjoy looking at peoples pictures of their sleds so I'd thought I'd share mine. These pic was taken about 2 months ago: Here is my family's small fleet that we've managed to keep since we started in the early 90's. From left to right:



1987 Yamaha Bravo (many memories of learning on this puppy)
1989 Yamaha Phazer
2006 Ski Doo GSX Limited 800 HO (My baby)
2005 Ski Doo GSX Sport 600 HO
1996 Ski Doo Formula S
1986 Ski Doo Formula Plus (tricked out, was clocked on a Lake at 116 MPH!)
Below: 1978? Ski Doo Olympique (currently being repaired for the 1,000th time)

I love the early Formulas. I bet you have a lot of fun racing much newer sleds on the lake with that. A lot of people going home wondering what the hell just happened to my $9000.00 what ever brand sled that is only a year old. Perfect sleeper. My cousin had a killer tomato it was an '87 and glorious but whoopin' red. Here's my old girl, she's a '94.

Here is another picture of the old girl, this was one of my Dad's first snowmobiles, and man does she fly. He never let me ride it until i was like 15 because it just went too fast. It was clocked on Lake Memphramagog in Derby, VT at 116mph and it will definitely still eat up most new sleds. It is however, completely horrible in the deep snow as my Dad and I have found out several times. We spent an hour and a half once building a ramp out of snow with a shovel to get it out because it is so heavy! Just hearing it run and getting on it makes you smile though because it just goes!

My father had an 85 plus.. the silver rocket.

Bought it from new - even had the crate delivered to his house - so HE could put it together.
