    Default Basic utility machine.

    I have a question. I am moving up there in a few years and I was wondering what's the difference in machines. I will want one to get around in the winter for hunting, trapping, fishing etc. I have access to very inexpensive used machines here, especially during the summer. I was a small engine mechanic for fifteen years so I feel confident I can maintain and repair most anything with an engine, two or four stroke. I know literally nothing about these things , but if they are like motorcycles there is a big difference between a klr and a ninja. I am more of a klr guy if that makes sense. Thanks.

    Find an old Yamaha Bravo. In fact, buy two: one to ride and the other to part out. Older Ski-Doo Tundra's are good too.

    I would not buy anything down there, wait to buy a used machine once you get here. I have a skandic wt and a couple Yamaha mm and they will all get the job done, with that being said I like the skandic the best now I am not into the speed any longer but forward and reverse and not having to dig it out is much nicer.
