Hi,

I just purchased a 2011 Yamaha xt250 dual sport. My first bike since I was 15 years old and my first street legal bike. I absolutally love being able to ride on the roadways and trails. Let me know if you have any questions for me. I have a bunch of mechanical experience replacing snowmobile engines.

I got a question.........

Years ago, when living in upstate Maine, I recall that virtually EVERYONE up there owned a snowmobile. It was a type of transportation, not just a recreational vehicle.

When Winter got so bad that the snow was interfering with people being able to navigate the roads with their cars or trucks; or if the snow was so high that even getting their car or truck out of the GARAGE was a difficulty.........everyone took out their snowmobiles to get to work, church, whatever.

So my question is..........when did snowmobiles turn into a Praying Mantis looking thing, and quick being utilitarian?! Have you SEEN some of these snowmobiles these days?! They look absolutely CRAZY!!
