I ride street bikes, dirt bikes, quads, and sleds, and snowmobiling puts more smiles per mile on my face. The pace you can run and the distance you can cover on a good day with decent conditions is amazing. All the trails being legal and marked, and the locals cater to snowmobiles..
It's road speeds in the trails, and when trails are freshly groomed it can be orgasmic!
It is a short season, you have to trailer your sled (frome here inCT) to anywhere you want to ride. Sleds are expensive like all the power sports most of us ride, so the smiles per dollar ratio may not be as good as 2 wheels, but worth it to me. I don't stud my KTM 450 but I will ride the quad here in CT or just sled up north...
I rode part of baley hazelnut trail this winter on a snowmobile, I plan to ride it this summer on the 990 ADV...
