2020 Ski-Doo Freeride 165 Review
The venerable Freeride faces stiff competition from its newest sibling. The 2020 Ski-Doo Freeride 165 is ready to go where few sleds can follow in the steep and deep, but it has some competition in the way of its new brother – the Summit Expert.
2020 Polaris RMK KHAOS Review
A freakishly nimble mountain tamer
Polaris invited us out to Wyoming’s Togwotee Mountain Lodge to test out the brand new and incredibly nimble 2020 Polaris RMK KHAOS.Not only does Polaris want to be wicked with its AXYS Pro-RMK with 850 Patriot power (which came to market for modelyear 2019), and with its 800 Liberty motor, but for 2020, Polaris wants to go chaotic on the mountains with new 2020 Polaris RMK KHAOS – a freakishly-nimble and beyond “flickable” mountain sled.
2019 Mountain Snowmobile Shootout
After spending months behind the bars of the 2019 Ski-Doo Summit X 850 and Polaris Pro-RMK LE 850 (155 and 165), we present our 2019 Mountain Snowmobile Shootout.
For model year 2019, Polaris shines in the steep-and-deep with its Pro-RMK 850s, and Ski-Doo with its G4 850 Summit X continues to be a stellar example of easy maneuverability with a dependable and high-tech motor. Let’s see how they compare in our 2019 Mountain Snowmobile Shootout.

X-PRO 200 ATV Quad 4 Wheelers Utility ATV
For the price I definitely have no complaints, you should use two people to get the suspension and wheels on or a jack. I’m 220 pounds and the power is fine but wouldn’t put anybody on the back, Would not recommend for throwing a hunting trophy on the back or anyone else. I use it to get around my property and do maintenance. It has enough power for one person only, but love it so far.
2022 Husqvarna FC 250 Rockstar Edition Review
The special-edition wars continue, and we the consumers are the beneficiaries of this 250 four-stroke battle as KTM and engage in an in-house fight for dominance.
The Austrian brands are currently the only ones to offer limited-edition quarter-liter MXers. The all-new 2022 Husqvarna FC 250 Rockstar Edition is almost identical to the 2022 KTM, but with just enough variances to make me curious of what performance differences there may be. This FC 250 Rockstar Edition is a 2022 model, but we know it is an early release of an all new 2023 generation. Husqvarna was not kidding when it said this bike is all-new.
2022 Suzuki RM-Z450 Review
Suzuki RM- Z450 is a good bike, flanked by others which are good as great as well. In fact, Twisted Tea/HEP/Suzuki racer Brandon Hartranft just finished eighth overall in the 2022 Monster Energy AMA 450 Supercross point standings, only one spot behind 2021 450SX Champion Cooper webb.
When showcased side by side, the beautiful yellow and blue bike has a few blemishes that instantly draw attention: namely the kickstarter and unique Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion (BFRC) shock. So for 2022, Suzuki asked the Dirt Rider crew to give the RM-Z450 a fair shake, isolated from the rest of the 450cc offerings.
