O/T: My newest hobby! Anyone else on here ride a snowbike?
Posted by: sweet66monza ()

Well, after dad going for it, I decided it was time to join the snowbike club. I made the fit kit to put a 2013 timbersled kit onto my 1985 XR350. Yes I know its a little outdated, but it is also FUN and PAID FOR! lol. I am still getting used to it, and it is a blast! It is nothing like a dirtbike or a snowmobile. Unfortunately the conditions this year havent been good yet.

Another bonus is it is air cooled. Good way of sticking to our roots! lol

Those are awesome, not enough for me to move to where there's snow but I'd sure do it if I were there.
My photo in my signature is a winter shot where I live, looks just like that today, it was 60 degrees in my shop, I did roll up the window when I drove the Vair down the road today, wind was a little chilly.

CMX makes those snowbike kits too. CMX is the Lamborghini of snowmobiles. I just sold my CMX last year.

Matt- on hard pack they are pretty tough to handle. In soft stuff theyre amazing, and get better and easier with depth. Side hilling and cutting through the trees is effortless compared to a snowmobile. And the BW looks fun! My Rokon is a complete blast in the snow too! Sadly out of all 12 of my bikes, none are electric start.

No x games for me yet, I still have skill to work on! Last weekend was the best snow yet, it seems the more snow, the better with these!!

The snow job on that Kawi looks like fun too, especially since I like weird stuf!
