Brian Fandel's midwest Arctic Cat ATV adventure.

Last month, Brian Fandel embarked upon a 14-day, 1,542-mile ATV adventure from his home in Thief River Falls to northern Michigan, and back on a 2017 Arctic Cat Alterra TRV.

For an extra measure of sportiness, he did the trip alone.

Fandel, who is an NVH engineer at Arctic Cat, rode nine of the 14 days, logging 251 miles on the longest leg and 67 miles on the shortest. Impressively, there were four days that exceeded 200 miles.

Thank You David Johnson (and may you rest in peace).

10/10/2016 11:01:00 AM

David Johnson, one of the founders of Polaris.

David Johnson died this past Saturday at age 93.

Johnson was one of three founders of Polaris Industries of Roseau, Minn., along with brothers-in-law Edgar and Allen Hetteen.

Johnson is widely credited as the one who build the first Polaris snowmobile in 1955.

He was a humble, gracious man who left indelible tracks for the company and the sport of snowmobiling.

The world is a better place today because of David Johnson.

I was at Arctic Cat’s recently expanded engine production (and engineering) facility in St. Cloud, Minn., earlier this week for a ribbon cutting featuring various dignitaries from the St. Cloud area and Arctic Cat.

The occasion was to celebrate the makeover and expansion of the St. Cloud facility; thank the great employees are designing machines and building engines there; and "rev the engine" of a company that's going full-gas down the patch set forth by CEO/President Chris Metz.

Based on what I saw on computer monitors of CAD designers at St. Cloud, and what I gleaned from conversations with several engineers, this is going to be a fun, wild ride! Yep, there’s A LOT of cool stuff coming.
