    It may depend on what type of riding you do. With the sleds you listed, it looks like you want to go fast. If you do alot of lake riding or high speed riding the ZR900 might be your sled of choice. I had always been on and believed in the ZR chassis because of its cornering and handleing. Great trail sled and it really shines on the lakes. The ZR900 is one fast sled and is full of torque.

    After test-riding a few my buddys F-series sleds last year, I really liked the F7 alot for 'our type' of riding which is mostly bumpy trail riding with limited lake runs. I bought my first F7(2005 F7 efi R) this past fall and this sled is very comparable to the ZR but since it is 'lighter' in weight it handles the bumps or ditch banging better IMO. The F7 in most cases is safe to say that it is going to be quicker in a short race than the ZR900 but the ZR9 will be faster on a longer run. I think the F7 is about the best "all around" sled there is out there...you get it all with the F7. I think both sleds are great but you need to decide which one will suit your type of riding you will be doing.

    I have been hearing out there if you are a taller person, the ski-doo's (rev's etc.) may not be the sled for you. My friend has an 03 Rev 800. I am 6'1 and that type of sled is not for me. It doesnt exactly feel like a "snowmobile" to me when I ride it. I feel like I am to far forward and sitting to high up. I am not saying this is bad...I just dont like it...my friend does though and he is 6'0 tall. I will tell you this though, he has turned that sled on its side a bunch of times though. BUT...I should also throw in that he has been looking around for an F7 recently also.

    You also will want to choose a sled that there is a dealership close to you of course. If something goes wrong with the sled you dont want to be trekking a far distance to get to your dealer. I think all the sleds you listed are going to give you good reliability as long as you take care(proper maintanance) of it.  I am not sure what type of sled you are switching off from but you will want to make a few calls and price insurance...which can sometimes be pricey!! Good luck with your decision!

    Glad you like it! Where have you been riding? Are you still riding? Our snow is gone...it was like 60 degrees here(WNY) today. It looks like our season could be over. The month of March will sometimes bring us a blast of snow or two. This whole winter sucked. I only put on about 600 miles(usually get in around 1500-2000miles). Of that 600 miles...about 150 were put on during a weekend we spent up in the Minden, Ontario area.

    Yeah, the rev is hands down the better handling sled out of those choices.
