New sled for my dad

Recommended Posts

Over the years, my I have to admit, my dad has been pretty good to me.   To the point, it could be considered spoiling your kid.   I always drove a brand new truck growing up and when we were in business together, our business always paid for my sleds, seadoos, dirt bikes etc.... He never really questioned much.   My dad and I have put 1000s of miles sledding around northern Ontario since the mid 90s and our last trip together was probably 15 years ago.   He has had lots of sleds but the last sled that he has ridden for a full season was back in 2011.    Normally he goes south for the winter but the 'Rona is keeping him in Ontario this winter.   I thought that a nice way of repaying him for everything he has done over the years is to take him sledding this winter.    I picked up this lightly used 2020 Indy 850 for him and we are planning some good rides this winter.    Its permitted, insured and ready to rip.   He always looked after me when I was growing up and I am pretty fortunate to be in the position where I can return the favour now.   I am looking forward to this winter probably more than the last 10 years.

Very nice gesture. I wish my dad was around so I could do the same for him. Hopefully I’m around long enough my children will do the same! Nice sled btw! 
enjoy the season! I’m eagerly waiting!

My dad is only 68 but he is going on 55.   He isnt afraid to twist the throttle.  He is pretty excited for this season.
