Whats the fastest youv'e been on a sled?

I agree with speednut that you can crank out some unbelievable speeds from these machines with the proper work. Having said that, as a Cat owner/rider for over 30 years there is no way in HELL that that Cougar is stock!! Speedo numbers, NOT RADAR, stock machines: 1986 El Tigre 6000 530cc about 95, 1987 Pantera 440 L/Q only does 90 on a good day, 2000 ZR & 2001 ZL 600's do just over the 100 mark. I rode with many of the Cougar 500 F/C's in their earlier days and they couldn't get out of their own way in stock form. So let's be realistic, if you got a Cougar 440 over 100mph, IT AIN'T STOCK!!

119mph on 660'run w/ a SRX back in the day... when it was set up for that. Now it's clutched & piped etc... for doing wheelies from tree to tree on N.Wi trail systems, not the lake(7,600m now). It will see all of 107mph+ across a perfect lake now a days. Flat corners like she is on rails.

I got a bone stock Yamaha 120cc Sno-Scoot to go well over 22 MPH in the pits of Beausejour. Scariest ride of my whole life, seem to take for ever to get to the other end of the pits.

Then this one time at band camp.......

Pretty sick top speeds...

When the Bear Cat is in good shape, it'll do just a bit over 65mph on the speedo :D Told you it's fast !
