We headed out to Cooke for a week of riding. It was my first time there and I was amazed at the scenery and terrain. I was not sure if it would be worth the extra 8 hours in the truck, but it was! I hate that the season is now officially over for the crew, but it was a great trip to end with. Not a ton of fresh powder, but mid 30's and soft snow made for some great riding weather!

Check out the video I threw together. It was my first trip on the turbo M8, and it all I can say about that is WOW! Wish I would have made the leap sooner.

I can't see the vid from work but will check it out when I get home. Cooke is my all-time favorite riding destination that I have been to out west. I'm hoping to go again next year.

Great video and ball$ie chute climb @ 2:37! How was the pucker factor on that one?? I would love to go and join with a turbo... but not on my current platform and carbs... to much tinkering I've been told. :(

Awesome! Think a turbo may be in my future for sure.

Good video! Pucker at 2:37, not with a turbo.
I rode my first unnaturally aspirated sleds this past weekend in the Snowies(The most snow I have ever seen there, and still snowing when we left Mon evening).
One had S/C the other with a turbo, both Nytros.
It makes it nice when the only reason to turn out is that you run out of hill.


BTW-waiting on pics of a discounted seat you purchased

Turbos are the way to go. I was amazed at how pull the rope and go it was. I dont know what you are talking about with the seat??

Yeah. 2010 M8 HCR 153 with narrowed stance, and Boondocker race gas turbo. Pull the rope and ride for the whole week in Cooke.

On another site I sent you a coupon for Boss, and asked for pics of the sled with the new seat. Just wondering if you used it.
