Most of the manufacturers now make 2-up touring sleds. You might want to
look at the Yamaha Venture. 2-up, elec start, reverse, hand warmers for
driver and passenger, full instrumentation, mirrors all standard
equipment. This series has been around for many years, and used models
are often good values. Yamaha tends to be higher priced than other
makes, though. On the other hand, they have a better than average
reputation for reliability.

A buddy last year bought a DOO grand touring SE for him and his wife, they
loved it, said it was big, but had lots of power and actually handled
remarkably well.

Have heard excellent comments also about the Doo touring sled SE. But
this year for 98 they offer a 700 3 cylinder that sounds like a better
choice than the SE model.  The major difference with an SE model is
the air adjustable suspension that can adjusted while riding and the
triple pipes.  Triple pipes take up a lot of room and single pipe
offers jsut about the same cool sound with less weight.  Also paying
over 1000.00 for these two features makes it difficult to justify.  So
I would recomend the Bombardier Grand Touring 700 as the touring sled
for 2 up.

Hi!

Does anyone have some black & white line-drawn pictures of snowmobiles.  I'd
 like to make some posters and signs with my printer.  The scanned color photes
 aren't very crisp.  I'd also prefer the riders ridding the machine be wearing
 helmets, as we try to promote safety.  Pictures of snowmobiles with no riders
 are fine, too.  I'd really like Ski-Doos, but any will help,  !

I got some great pictures of ATV"S that someone uploaded, and one picture of a
 lady snowmobiler I really liked, but the guys want equal representaion......
 go figure!!

Thanks

Janell
