    2nd Annual Summer Sucks Party-

    Yeah. Yesterday morning I was looking for Nunz's address so I went searching on here. First thread that came up was started by Mother Christmas about the Parry Sound get together. Brought back some great memories! Sitting in the big white trailer, marshmallow gun fights, etc.

    Thanks to Karen and Nunz for being such great hosts. It was great to see old friends and meet some new ones!

    Best Cold Weather Suits

    With regards to the heated liner, First Gear is the brand that I have. I purchased from Canada Motorcycle (now Fort Nine http://fortnine.ca ) and they offered sizing information as well as easy exchange if the size is not correct. I usually wear FXR Jacket, either with or without the jacket's liner, but always have the heated liner on underthe TekVest. I usually do not have the liner plugged in, but it is easily accessible if I start to get chilly. I also have the matching heated pants liner, but have only needed them a couple of times in extreme cold.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    Matt, under MOTS, that will change as the clubs now have NO MONEY. All permit funds have to be turned over to the district, so even the small bills are paid by the district. As for volunteer repairs, I fear that they will dwindle as the volunteer efforts would be only saving the district money, with no benefit to the club. Yes, the equipment gets repaired, but there is no difference to the club if it gets repaired for free, or if there was a labour cost attached.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    Sorry, but it sure didn't look like it was working last year when we visited. A few years ago, I was touting the Sudbury area as a great area, after last year, not so much.

    MOTS deadline September 6/2018

    Seems to me that it is suddenly a big rush and destined to have many issues. I suspect that the rush is so that it will be done before the AGM so that even if the clubs complain, it will be too late. Without money, there is no power. And for any club that does not comply, they will not be in good standing and will lose their representation at the AGM. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. My complaint has always been that without some authority, why would anyone want to step up to run a club.

    Manitoulin Snowdusters in deep trouble

    According to the link posted by 02Sled, it doesn't look like there are any feasible clubs in the area. With the MOTS philosophy, I would not be surprised to see this happening much more.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    A long event would be about 600 Km with maybe half on competitive stages where the turbo is really working and the rest on open roads, or transits. Usually would be maybe 200 Km.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    When I was rallying, I only used quality dino oil (20W50) in my race engine. I figured that if I needed to add during an event, compatible oil was easily accessible and was not concerned about oil life as the oil was only in the engine for 1 event. The oil and filter were changed after every event and the oil coming out looked nice and clean.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    I understood that the 30W oil in the triples was due to the hydraulic action of the timing chain tensioner working better with the heavier oil. I don't know how or what is different between the triple and the four holer, but they have always recommended the 0w30 for the triple so I have stuck with that rating. BTW, thanks to this thread and the OP, I picked up 3 jugs of Mobil 1 (0W30) yesterday.

    X2! It is also a chance to look for things that are starting to go wrong before they get worse.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    Actually, Yamaha sells 0W30 semi syn and recommends it for the three cylinders and also 0W40 Full syn for the Apex. I have always stuck with the 0W30, but have used Mobil1 as well as the Yamalube.
