Hey, anybody check out the new Polaris Rush on the website. The new suspension looks pretty interesting. Sleds are looking more like dirt bikes with each new improvement. Can't wait to see them at the spring shows!

The sled manufacturers are wondering why sales over the years have slumped, I can't speak for all riders but most high milers like me wouldn't be able to ride in cold temps on these winter motorcycles. They might be great for ditchbangers but not for me. Theres a reason nobody rides motorcycles in the winter, right. Just my 2 cents.

I'm kinda look'n for something more to smooth out the washboard trails besides my dirty laundry... It looks really great for the snoXers so i'll guess we'll see how it does on the trails and lakes...

There are going to be a lot of naysayers out there about this new design, but mark my words, when they get the chance to see just how comfortable these things handle the trails, a majority of the complaints will fade away.
Weather can be delt with by wearing proper attire. It IS winter time, and that's why we ride in the first place. The number one literal pain in the arse in snowmobile design is dealing with mashed & moguled trails, and THE pains in the arse that come with it after a ton of miles. This thing will limit shock through the back, and be a ton of fun to ride.

I totally agree on the suspension, but this could not be built with some having a reasonably designed hood? Im not saying they couldnt build some of the sleds like dirt bikes for the people that like that, but i personally ride skidoo and all models are primarily the same with different motors and stickers. Personally i would rather not have to wear every piece of snowmobile clothing i own to go riding all the time. I also have my daughter (4) on my lap occasionally and its nice to allow her to stay protected behind a hood and windshield. Im just frustraited that next year i need a new sled and really have no choice but to buy a dirtbike and deal with it. If these sleds are really new technology than why havent they worked on the suspensions to lessen the mogul effects on trails, or use a different cooling design to lessen snow usage off the trail. Dont get me wrong, ive ridden most of the new sleds this year(09) and they do ride nice, but the wind protection is still a big problem.

I had an opportunity to ride the Rush yesterday in Hurley and have to say that for the first time in the industry their is a sled built to fit most riders... THis will have electric start, taller windshield, mirrors and tour bag options.
This is flat out the best riding and most forgiving sled I have ever ridden. Dawn from Hiawatha should have Al and my review of the sled posted soon...
Great Job Polaris!!!

The wind is not that bad. The windshield and the hand guards seem to work together to send the wind up over your head. I mounted small foam gauntlets in back of the guards and they roll on the riser when it's warm.
