Sean and his father restored that machine after the machine retired from grooming snowmobile trails in their home town,

ironically the first owner was our host Big Powder Horn.

I love the idea of the 300 series, but people must have been much smaller back then.

I struggle to close the door once i am in it.

Heed that warning, the prerequisite to high gear operation is a numbing trek into the wilds of The Yoop, with out eye protection, in 6 degree weather, and I might add that throttle cables were stress tested and operation verified on the return trip.

I did not factor the evaporative effect of that malarkey called wind chill.

Bad ass operators don't enter *Wind Chill* into conversation.....

so be warned about that high gear thing.....

its not for the faint of heart.

My 420,Torpedo,goes about twice as fast as my enclosed 422!! obviously there are different gear ratio differentials in the machines ! Having run open cab log skidders for many years of my life, i never worried about windchill much ! a beard helps also !

Didn't realize how much fun these things are to cruise around in until this week. Our trails closed so I dropped the drag and did some Sno catting around the farm this week. Way more fun without the drag! This picture was from this afternoon, 54 degrees. Two more days of this and all our snow in central Wisconsin will be gone. Hopefully I will make it to the Clowder next year with my Tucker
