    I have to begin my annual treatment for snopox this weekend. I hope it goes well. The first couple times see to be a little rocky but smooth out after time. I gotta keep on it and do them regularly to staw on top of it. I still need to fix my oxegen bottle and fill it with oxogen and other chemicals so I don't run out of breath on those high times.

    umm, where do I start. Its a 99 RMK bulkhead, CMX tunnel, CMX M-10 rear skid, 162x15x2.25 track, 800 twin with V Force 3 reeds, cut head, PSI twin pipes with modded can, boss noss, powderlite pro trailing arms, simmon skiis, boss seat, fabcraft post with total of 8" rise, modded stock hood and a mesh hood, u-cooler, etc. Next year plan to cut and raise the bulkhead and maybe put the 1085 genesis in it.

    I have the skid set pretty well and the dual carbite simmons help steer on the harder stuff
