As someone that lives in Maine I knew this happened in Maine before I even clicked on the link.

On that note: Why do stock sleds need to go as fast as they do?

Yes, in Maine we call them sleds.

Sad. I lost a friend to snowmobiling. A storm came up and he couldn't see and he drove right into open water.

Agreed to all three.

Either there were some serious snowbanks on that trail or he was going at a ridiculous speed. Moose are damn fast when they want to be, and something noisy coming toward them is going to make them move. (No, the average car is not as noisy as the average sled.)

When I was a kid (late 60s/early 70s) we called them Ski-Doos, no matter what make they were.

And yes, unless it's a racing machine, it's crazy to go 85 mph, whether on a trail, or even a lake or a field.

"Animals do use the snowmobile trails to travel on because it's easier walking or they use them to avoid predator"

I hope the moose wasn't slowly trudging along the path in the same direction. If not better to leave it at he died colliding into a moose.

Try finding a new sled that doesn't make it 85mph. This 800 was banned from racing after one year (1971) because it was too fast and too dangerous, now Arctic Cat hardly has a single model that isn't 570cc or bigger. "Entry level" sleds are faster. Maybe not louder, though. Straight piped 800 may repel moose better than a new 4 stroke.

I grew up driving a '69 Ski-Doo Olympic. 12 horsepower. Top speed (according to the speedometer) 45 mph. Plenty fast enough. Of course being in my mid-teens I wouldn't have minded going faster. Now? I hopped on a recent model Ski-Doo a couple of years ago, hit the gas, and glanced down at the speedo after a couple hundred yards. 85, and I hadn't topped out. Screw that.

Lee Bruns: Jeebus, foxbrook78, did Arctic Crap offer that free air inline four or was that a custom build? Wild machine either way.


They made around 125 of the King Kat 800s just so they had enough to qualify to race them, they made more of the King Kat triples that were slightly smaller (693cc?). The 800s are museum pieces now, the last one I saw on ebay had a buy it now of over $30,000. The web site I stole the pic from mentioned the crank shafts were prone to shattering and my guess is that tuning 4 carbs wasn't easy either. I doubt you'd see anybody ripping around on one due the risk of destroying it.

As a teenager, you remember driving around with the throttle buried... no need to do that anymore. A little restraint goes a long way.

/440SS fan-cooled Polaris for me... Slow (tops out at ~75mph), cheap and reliable.

To clarify, a limerick has an amphibrachic meter with a strict rhyme scheme: a-a-b-b-a. This scheme can vary in the number of syllables, such as 7-7-6-6-7, 8-8-6-6-8, 9-9-6-6-9, etc.

I live in Caribou, about an hour north of where that happened. It happens every farking year. If it's not a moose, it's a fence, or a tree, or some jackarse drives out on the lake in early December. I don't know what it is about sleds that makes people so farking stupid.

I know what a Burma Shave sign is.
I'm so old that I remember reading them when I was a child.
If that's what it is, it's a pretty poor attempt at that too.
Silly me. I thought it was an attempt at a limerick because the source was listed as "some limerick guy" and the town was named in the story.
