Brand Loyalty?

I was just curious if you guys have been riding the same brand since you started or if you have changed brands through the years?

Started on Cat ... had a Skidoo, Rupp, Skirule, Yamaha (For my Girlfriend) and finally back to Cat. The only brand of the remaining "Big Four" that I was never impressed with was Polaris. Rode a lot of them, and never felt comfortable on them.
Long Live the Tripples !!!!

Started on SnoJet, then Motoski, then to Polaris. Thinking of the Cat next (just thinking), but had to good of reliability with the two Polaris' I got now. Have to wait and see. They are all junk in the trunk when there is NO snow on the ground.

I've been riding Ski Doo since 1966. Have had several different models and still have a 66 10 hp oly, 70 640 tnt, 73 298 Blizzard, 79 cross country Blizzard, 79 7500 Blizzard and a 97 Grand touring 700. Least liked was a 9500 Blizzard ( I hated it so much, I parted it out after only 600 miles). I put everything into the 79 7500 chassis. Next least liked was a 77 Everest 444 liquid cooled. I'm having concerns right now about the 700 touring. This engine problem the triples have really bothers me.
