Thumb PNW Snowbikers...

Any north sounders ride one ski? If we get any snow, next weekend I'm riding HWY 2 area 51...

I have been thinking about selling my sled and picking up one of these tracks for my 500. Would you recommend the short or long track? I primarily ride around Mt. Bachelor going from trail to minor boondocking back to trail etc....I feel like the ST would be better because the whole purpose is to gain more maneuverability. I'm coming from a 144" track summit 800 if it matters. Appreciate any pointers/recommendations.

+1 Have been seriously considering a snowbike for next season. Hoping to find a used 2015 Timbersled LT next year

I drooled over the Timbersled stuff at the IMS yesterday. The setup is a lot bigger than I thought it be but I'm intrigued. I need to catch a ride on one and see if I "catch the bug".

I too have been considering buying one of these kits.

I have a WR400F that I haven't ridden in years that would be perfect for powering one of these kits.

I also have three snowmobiles that the wife and I ride quite a bit.

So, why not combine the best of both worlds??

I just wish they weren't so damn expensive...big gamble to take if you find you don't like it all that much.

Also wondering short track or long track?

I definitely know long tracks work best on our sleds, but a bike may be different?

you will like it, i alwyas tell people if your gonna try one be ready to buy one, its the most fun you can have, like the best day skiing and the best day dirtbikeing rolled into one, ive been rideing the mtn horse kits since they first came out, and 2-moto before that, M8 before that. its like a trials bike for the snow- you see somewhere you want to go, and make it happen!

The yellow bike with us was a ST, he did OK but was pinning it when I only had 3/4 throttle. Unless you find a good deal get a LT
