Looks like a nice day for a ride. When I was a kid a friend had a snowmobile but he sold it because he could only use it every 4 or 5 years down here. With the snows we get these days an ATV does just fine.
In a state like Minnesota as well as the adjacent states of Wisconsin and Michigan, Snowmobilers are a big part of the economy in the winter. There are trail networks, and the restaraunts etc in the pictures get a lot of winter business from snowmobile riders passing through. Yes, from a utilitarian point of view, an ATV is more versitle, but the sensation of riding a snowmobile in entirely different.
I may live in the south now and don't want anyone to take this as an insult, but I don't plan on retiring here. Snow and cold is in my DNA as a native Minnesotan!
Thanks for the compliments! Riding a vintage machine with limited suspension travel is sort of like riding an old three wheeled ATV with just the tires for suspension and comparing it to a modern 4 wheeler.
I tried to capture the scenery as best as I could.
Here, take a ride with me through my parents woods!
