Kirk Hibbert's End-of-Summer Time-Warp

8/26/2011 10:20:00 AM

Team Tigershark's Kirk Hibbert

The last weekend of September often sees Arctic Cat people the world-over enjoying the final fleeting glimmers of summer.

Some are going to the Outlaw Grass Drags/Swap Meet in Princeton, Minn., some are just chillin' with friends while others are buying new jeans and shoes for school.

Meanwhile, Team Arctic's Kirk Hibbert is enjoying a day on the river, riding his Tigershark, hanging-out with Joey and wondering who the heck is chasing him on WetBikes.

Click for the end-of-summer time warp.

New Arctic Cat Products for August '11

Arctic Cat Telescoping Steering Post

Each month a tall schmoozer from Arctic Cat sends the media hacks like myself a pack of press releases about products they hope we'll feature on printed or electronic pages.

Since their ad dollars help me to keep the lights on this place, I dutifully comply. Especially when I'm involved with some of the products.
