    Nice pics.It was a time when skidplates,bright colors,and long travel were all the rage.Yamahas were Uber light,Polaris was pushing an old but effect chassis,Arctic cat had AWS but late to the long travel game,and Skidoo was beginning to crawl out of the lead sled wilderness

    Our annual "Tulppiosafari" was last weekend and it was as always, pure fun! Nearly 370 kilometers and three days with friends.
    This year´s lineup was amazing, especially Ski-Doo Mach Z was totally cool! That sled was totally restored, even every bolt and etc. was yellow passivated.

    My Exciter had minor problems, the pull starter exploded on the second day and had to rely on 440 XCR. Until that incident, Exciter did very well and was pleasure to drive.

    Here are few photos of our trip:

    Still going strong. Got new OEM stickers and new electric start and brand new fresh air kit and Totaltek pipe (Only in Finland). These modifications caused carburetor adjustments. Starting with 330 main jets. All these mods are made to respect original options.
    Here in Finland these sleds are the Vintage ones

    First test drive for this year. New pipe and freshair kit and put 330 main jets. Have to make little adjustments for idle speed, otherwise it seems to run really nice. Also installing electric start IF the pull starter fails again
