I got the same temps up here very weird for this time of year. Pray for some of that deep cold powder snow. My 294 Nokians will not cut it in the deep stuff on snowmoblie trails at 25 PSI. I want float.
I know about the cost of the Wildfire. Man that hits the pocket book hard, but just a having custom made snow bike made in Alaska gives you some bling factor in the lower 48. (I know cheesy but what to hell) I just might get the Pugs because of all the great stuff I hear about them and the price.
Please keep me updated on your thoughts about the Pugs.
