Why do you like Skidoo/Rotax.  What makes you buy them over the others.  What features do you really like about them.  And do you agree with what the magazines say about your sled?

If you dont like skidoo just dont post so this topic doesnt get locked down.  Because the nature of this topic could bring on some trouble very quick.

i like skidoo because- power , handling, looks and styling
i buy skidoo because- reliability, customer service and Technology

I love the renegade. It is the perfect sled for my style of riding. The mags were dead on with their reports on the gade.

You and Lady K seem to really like that Renagade.  I never had the chance to ride one but it sounds like a great machine.  

I probably wouldnt want one because I almost never do any powder but sounds like the Mags were right because they gave it high marks.

I have to totally disagree with the Mags about the Mach.  Its like they want to kill it just by critizising it.  They are right about a few things but I think the problem is that the test riders dont like it because its not a jumper and all they want to do is smash mogles and stuff.   They should get Ice drag racers to test all the machines.  Then you will here the true story.

I also buy doo for the same reasons.

why did I start riding doo's? it was because I could ride a 470 and outrun most competitors in the class and the next class up.but I am starting to think doo has lost their minds putting all the eggs in one basket =REV.I think they should listen to what the consumer wants being light,smooth,powerful sleds.this being said it is not a twin that I want, I just want less weight.give me the triple with less weight,Yamaha has done it why not doo?I know there are 809 's in zx's why not doo?

Yes if you could give me a triple in a zx chassis with a 136" skid. I would be on board in a flash.  It's like doo has turned there back on the triples.  They dont seem to care what we need, only about sales figures.  Don't they realize that if they actually put some R/D,(&#036
. They would sell alot more triples than 400/yr. I owned new tripples  in 96/97/98 and 99 but switched to a 00 mxz 700/1.25 predator for the weight savings and nimbleness of the zx.
 Your right about the mags though machzzzz1.  What is the best one year is junk to them the next, unless it gets  a new chassis, engine and so on...

I forgot all about the DESS. Its a great feature. It makes Cats 4 different key codes a little Archaic.

This is my first full winter riding a ski doo before that i was always a polaris man.  But what hooked me first was the ZX Chassis and its awsome style.

i probably would have bought a polaris because of their popularity in the area here and not to rock the boat in the business i am in. but lucky for me i couldn't find a polaris in the 1 hour that i shopped sleds and my brother in-law has a 583 mxz so i was familiar with the doo a little. but the reason why i stay is the fit and finish is fantastic, the dealer and built here in canada.

Sorry, but I don't ride Doo, but I will say that the fit and finish is excellant. I like the styling of the Zx chassis. I must say that I have owned Cats for 7 years now and have never thought of switching until now. The 2003 renegade 800 has really caught my eye this year. I am looking for an all around good machine that has the ability to do a little of everything and still be comfortable on the trails and have some reliability as well. I also think that Ski-Doo also has the best accessories options of the four manufactors. I could be riding a Doo next year
