Goliath Returning from Battle

Rocky Mountain starting selling snow bike kits, and they even list a kit for the KX500.  I'm not sure how the price relates to other kits, but it's out there for anyone that actually gets snow anymore.

I see the price is still ridiculous for these kits....smh
I myself will stick with 180hp sleds for the same money.

I know lots of guys that love the overall handling of the snow bikes and won't go back to a sled.

I tried one last year...it was fun...but no where near the adrenaline rush imo.
A properly set-up 800cc+ mountain sled with a 3" paddle track will go anywhere a sno-bike will go....and a lot more.

Sidehill and though the trees.  Horsepower is a lot of fun, I would want both but I am not a wealthy man.  Less carnage if you don't make a hillclimb too.

Like I said...."a properly set up mountain sled will go anywhere a sno-bike will go".
Carnage is gunna happen regardless what you're ridin....even in the dirt....just the nature of the sport.

I thought the same too but, but Once you've been on one for awhile you will start to read terrain different and take way different lines. You can ride tighter trees much faster on a bike. It's not even close. I have 15yrs on a sled in the mtns and 5 on a bike

Much smoother and quicker on the trail up and down too. While the sleds are riding 3ft whoops you can rip in 5th gear the 6in wide strip of fresh snow on the side of the trail.

They are a pile of money and there are many tricks to making a k5 work in deep snow. Totally worth it though.

Me personally...will never justify spendin $6K for an "attachment" that weighs 100+lbs ,to a bike that was meant for the dirt....there was just no "excitement" in it. Fun, yeah...momentarily...but, the lack of power, I might as well have been ridin a Harley....just lame on straightaways or anywhere you wanted to go fast.
Around here, there's hardly any snow bikes...and I've watched guys on sleds do things that the guys on the snow bikes won't even think of trying...like dropping off 40' 50' cliffs into the powder below. I have yet to see any great advantages over a sled around here...unless we're talkin super tight woods where a sled would barley fit anyways.

This was on a '16 KTM 450 that I tried on.
We're all different, and we all enjoy different things, and we all consider different things "exciting"....I've been sledin since my mother was pregnant with me!....dirt bikes for 41 years....snow bike...well...maybe an hour lol...all set.
