After 20 years out of snowmobiling I'm back! I've always been a Cat man and rode hard through the late 70's and early 80's. A career move and family changed all of that. Back in MN and itching to ride again I purchased an '03 F7 EFI for myself and an '01 ZL 600 for my 13 year old son. My last sled was an '81 El Tigre 5000 which I bought new and put about 5,000 miles on. Needless to say, the change in technology in the last 25 years is unreal. We got enough snow this weekend to try them out and I can't say enough about the power and ride of the Firecat. I'm thrilled to be back in the sport and really enjoy this site!
