An old-school edge with a rider-forward seat

obrien polaris edge 1Phil, I remember the day I picked up the phone to ask if you had any plans for an RXL Tribute decal kit for the Edge chassis.

FIRST, you were quick to say that you'd have to call around to your friends in the industry to be sure that nobody else was doing one, because you didn't want to "step on anybody's toes."

SECOND, you told me that if you did develop a kit that you'd send me the first one for free for giving you the idea! Those two gestures really told me a lot about the person I was dealing with. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. You're an honorable man Phil, a man of your word. Without trying to sound too negative, these character traits sometimes seem to be less and less common these days... but they are plentiful around the vintage circuits for sure. That's why I'm proud to share your name and contact info with everyone who has commented on my "new" sled... and there have been many.

I found while researching your websites and racing history that you've also done much good for our sport of snowmobiling, as well as the motorcycling side of the house. That said, I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that your legacy has already been written. Your name and your company will certainly live on when (a LONG time from now) that green flag drops, signaling the start of the greatest adventure/race into the unknown my friend!

Thank you so much for helping me breathe new life into this high mileage, tired old chassis. Oh yeah, and into my sled too! Cheers.

Thanks a ton Mike. Looking forward to green flag drop into unimagined tracks. 

~Phil
