I assume everybody has heard that Cat scrapped the snow bike project? :eek

There's one sitting on the showroom floor at Day's Powersports in Bloomer, WI.

I believe I heard that they produced 100 of them.......

what's interesting is I just did a survey about snow bikes..... specifically about full purpose built units and not add-on kits

Guy I worked with was the points leader racing them and just got clipped at the end of the season. He quit and just got hired at Polaris and moved to Minnesota. I'm thinking they were the only company pushing them. The ones you saw are probably going to some collector someplace cause nobody is buying them

Not sure and I forgot to ask. It was pretty slow there this time. Quad line full of quads in various stages of assembly and nobody working it. Wildcat line was at a standstill as were the workers on it. Even our guide said that was unusual. Said they were probably waiting for parts. Bikes did not have the track assembly on them.

They are still in development as Cat will not release it until it is trail legal. Snow Goer a couple mags ago had a great write up on the bike. It will happen but have to get the clutch brake issues all ironed out as the brake on a sled has to be on the left side, same with the clutch. They have a pretty cool way to accomplish both.

As of Jan 1, 2018, Michigan opened the trail system up to ORV use. I think that is what the state is thinking. Why else would you have ORV and snowmobiles using the same trails during the same timeframe?

forest road change

actually you have it a little wrong.
the DNR is opening up more forest roads to orv use in the lower.
you still cannot ride on the snowmobile trail with an ORV during the snowmobile season december 1st till march 31st legally.
including snowbikes not manufactured as a snowmobile .
