John,

Reading your journal it appears you got a good taste of the vast variety of new sleds. I am looking for a new sled next year and wanted your opinion. I am a big fan of light weight sleds my last one was 413 lbs. What is your opinion between the new Summits and the RMK's? The new summits are ~ 422-435 lbs, the RMK 600 144 is 469, the Dragon 153 is 477lbs all other RMK's are heavier. You mentioned the Dragon highmarked further than the Summit does it boondock better? Heard of any reliability issues with the Summits (I'm looking at 600 E-Tec 154)? I'm leaning toward the 600's for fuel economy as mine will serve other purposes than pleasure riding (I live on 75 acres on Limestone MTN) and only ride off trail with some hill climbing. I like the 4 cycle idea but the sleds seem too darn heavy.

Thanks,
Ed
