    quads, it sounds like you might have had the same type snowmobile as one of my old ones! I was never into the speed thing as that seemed to distract one from enjoying the beauty of the land you were passing through. An occasional burst of speed is okay now and then but to ride that way all the time is just not for me.

    I agree Jake, it's due almost entirely to operator foolishness, never the machine itself. Happens with ATVs too, and dirtbikes. Seems like nowadays so many people think they are invincible (I was probably guilty of that myself at times) and then they get hurt, or worse.

    Dad had a snowmobile dealership in the 60s and 70s. He started out with Boatels, then Rupps, Speedways, and Allouettes. The last three snowmobiles I had (I sold them all several years ago) were, a 1964 Boatel Ski Bird with a 246cc Hirth engine 10.5 hp (my favorite), a 1970 Sprint 29 Rupp with a 290 Sachs, and a 1970 Magnum 44 Rupp with a 440 Hirth (not original engine). I wish I had kept one now for pulling my sled full of wood!

    Thanks for posting those pictures. Nice! It also looks very typical of the eastern U.P. You should be getting some thawing now too so the sledding might be short lived now. Time for the atv.

    Never drink and ride, like the others have said, a few idiots ruin it for all of us.
