That's ssssssssmokin!!! Gotta love them cold temps on a 2 stroke!! How was the driving experience?? Many talk of the Sabre being a handful over 65 mph. I find my Sabre easier at 69 mph than my Eyra was at the same speed.
With my average (light) load and me fishing solo the best I've ever seen was 64.9 on the GPS in my Sabre FTD with 150 Opti. That was a handful to me. I can't imagine another 10 MPH. That's screaming' in a Sabre.
