    Some tracks mix the snowmobiles with the motorcycle in the same class, some don?t. It varies by track. The track I race at has not combined the bikes and sleds so I have not had that experience just yet.

    I'm Billy Stannard, and this is my 1997 ZL 440 Mountain Cat, with a 2" paddle track. This snowmachine is undoubtedly one of the best snowmachines I have ridden. The trail riding is good with it, because it turns easy and rides smooth. When we go mountain

    Powder riding and off-trail excursions are what I live for. I've been known to drop out of long distance trail rides and go off wandering through the trees and over little hills to see what is out there. I really like deep bottomless powder, some relative

    It is very fast for its age. Leaves a giant roost while flying across the lakes, and is an excellent trail and ditch banger. It is in perfect condition, don't let the tools on the seat fool you, it's very dependable.
