Brock: Your dirt bike experience and your riding style are major factors. How do you ride your dirt bike? Do you ride motocross with lots of jumps? Are you an aggressive rider? How you answer those questions will lead me into the next questions like, “Are you looking to be an aggressive snowbike rider?” Once we figure out which chassis is best for you, then we go into terrain selection: Where you’ll be riding your snowbike. That – combined with how aggressive your riding style is – will determine what track length you need. The more aggressive you ride, the shorter the track length you can get away with.
For a beginner, depending on terrain, a longer track length can often be the best choice because you can go slower over uneven terrain, and it will offer more flotation. It has a bigger footprint, so you don’t have to carry so much speed to stay upright and maneuver.
