Sponsored content: It’s snow check season!

Snowmobile season is still going on strong and it’s time to think about what you’ll be riding next season. It’s snow check sea-son! This is the short window where snowmobilers have the opportunity to order the snowmobile they have always wanted.

You are given the chance to order your choice of color, engine, track length, electric start, suspension, digital display, and the list goes on. It’s exciting to design your own machine that meets your specific riding style and visual preference. An additional advan-tage is aggressive pricing and an extended warranty up to four years.

Bud’s PowerSports has Polaris, Ski-Doo and Arctic Cat. There are some exciting new machines out, like the new Polaris 850 Pa-triot or the all new Arctic Cat Alpha One. Ski-Doo has put a 600cc engine in the new Gen 4 chassis. Take advantage of this limited time offer to claim your NEW 2019 snowmobile.

Polaris snowmobiles need to be ordered by April 17, Ski-doo by April 11 and Arctic Cat by April 18. It’s still cold outside, but spring riding is just around the corner.

It’s time to get out the 4-wheeler or side-by-side and make sure it’s trail ready. I have already witnessed several machines with mechanical breakdowns that haven’t been on the trail since fall hunt-ing season. On most occasions, these breakdowns could have been avoided. We rely on our off-road vehicles to get us to and from our wilderness destinations and we are asking a lot of them.

These vehicles are not exercised frequently, like our cars, and they are exposed to use that is bordering abusive. It’s very impor-tant to make sure vital fluids are in good condition, drive belts are not at the end of their serviceable life, axles, suspension and brakes are not damaged or excessively worn, etc. The list continues with tires, lights, batteries and fuel systems.

As predictable as the Christmas shopping rush, Bud’s Power-Sports sees the spring rush. As soon as talk of spring rides and finally getting to favorite off-road destinations is in the air, the service department is backed up, and getting your machine in for service or repair is in question.

Will it be done in time for a planned ride? Maybe not.

Don’t let this happen to you. Now is the time to get this done. As the service manager at Bud’s PowerSports, I urge you to beat the rush. We want everyone to have fun and safe off-road ad-ventures, and we’re always happy to help.
