Hello Bud,

I've already posted some thoughts on my EVO 1 thread, just to keep this as text-free as possible.

Simply put, I'd do the EVO 2 if I could do it all over again. The girth is quite a bit, and at least to me, my knees feel a bit awkwardly pulled open. That said, I have what I have, and I plan to enjoy it. The extra fuel and fairing objectives were reached, so no worries there.

Get a good set of ice tires. The 690 is a ton of fun on the ice.

I would, but then my snowmobile would never get used

I have several friends that ride and I can use their bikes, so the $1000 investment in a set of Canadians or Fredettes doesnt sound appealing. The only advantage is that I could use my own bike

Id rather spend that money on a vacation to a warmer climate
