Do you have a 6.2? 411 HP right? I mean, if you think about it, that's roughly 66 HP per liter of engine. Mine and Jarretts sleds make 187.5 HP per liter of motor.

Difference is it's on pavement and spinning little tires, not a big, heavy, off balance track in snow, plus it's a 4 stroke.

And a Busa with nos? That must be one hell of a ride.

yeah 2 smoker sleds arent good on gas. when im on trail i figure i can get close to 15 MPG at best. my last ride i was full tank, did about 45 miles and im sitting at 3/4 tank left exactly. 11 gallon tank, so about 14 mpg.

off trail, lucky to get anything more than 10 lol.

when you ride for 3 hours and dont leave a 2 mile radius, does it really matter what MPG you get? more like smiles per gallon.

That's a drag man. An insurance on it or hope that the cops may find it?

had theft insurance thankfully. They paid out a pretty good amount. Cops will never find it. Come spring it will likely be sinking to the bottom of a lake up north.

sisters boyfriends sled was in our yard as well, stolen too. He didnt have theft though, poor guy.

Shit man that sucks. Good thing you had insurance. I bet the other guy gets insurance from now on.

yeah for sure. he was kicking himself.

I mean, it's expensive as fuck over $900 a year I paid. But that $900 is still cheaper than a new sled right.

Insurance paid out $8100. I still owed about $3600. So I came out ahead imo.

Buddy still owed $2000 on his. So hes paying for something he doesnt own anymore. Pretty shitty. I always insure anything worth more than $1500.

My quad, I don't bother insuring because the payout would be so low it's not worth it.
