  1. Novi Snowmobile Show, November 3 - 5

    no weekend passes that I am aware of for show patrons. would have to buy another entry pass. Ski
  2. Novi Snowmobile Show, November 3 - 5

    show up Friday, tour the show buy your stuff. go back Saturday if you wish, for more time... home on sunday. Saturday from open until about 2-3 pm is a ZOO! be prepared for LOTS of foot traffic, tire kickers, getting in the way of booths, deals, ect... sunday everything is picked over but, the dealers are more willing to cut massive discounts, so they don't have to pack it up, and take it home, especially before the close of the day (4pm I believe). Ski
  3. Novi Snowmobile Show, November 3 - 5

    we will be there! Ski
  4. Winterforcast

    historically, after a HUGE el nino (2016), and a large la nina (2017), the winters get progressively harsher little by little but, not extremely harsh. happened in 1997-1998 and 1998-99... 99-00 was ok but, not HUGE. my guess it will be better than the last two, by how much, who knows. we will get to ride.

  5. Congratulations The Groomer Guy!

    that is a NATIONAL AWARD, not just an Ontario, provincial thing. outstanding, and well deserved. thank you LUC, for keeping our sport alive, and relevant. Ski
  6. Anyone Know what this is about?

    bikes don't tear up the trails anymore than sleds. it is the idiot in control of the throttle that does that. everyone keeps trying to figure out how to get the young people, or more people involved, than when an option comes along, they resist... NOT IN MY BACKYARD. come ride with us, you will see the snow bikes have less of an impact than one might think, and believe. Ski
  7. Anyone Know what this is about?

    new price increase, with less services... just like all gov't entities. Ski

  9. Geraldton/Greenstone Reconnected

    Kris, that article was from February of this year. not sure if that actually opened or not, and or what the situation will be like for 2018. Denis would know more. I really hope it would open... with more travelers, all they would need to do is link longlac to marathon, via manitouwadge, and the old district 16, and most of the superior loop challenge would be open. it would definitely open up more possibilities for day riding, weekend loops, for regional and local sledders. a step in the right direction, for the region.

  10. SkiDoo Fuel Caddy

    post is 3 years old. welcome to the site, and 2017. Ski

    it seems like the touring sledders, halfway haven, the soo club, the Elliot lake club, the wawa and chapleau clubs, AND ALL LOCAL COMMUNITIES AFFECTED BY A CLOSURE OF THIS TRAIL, WILL HAVE TO JOIN FORCES, to get the ofsc, mto, mnr to get these washouts fixed. without support, and working together, this trail will close, halfway will close again, and the D trail will be lost again. effectively cutting off the soo, Elliott lake, and their riders from traveling north by sled. also this puts a HUGE hole between the north of lake huron system, with the northeast of superior system, hurting all communities along the ofsc top trail system in the northern corridor region. Ski
  12. Ice Scratchers

    both have their place. if you go cable, store them down out of the retainer or they will take a set, and not want to put much pressure on the ice you need to chip away at. the spring style don't like rail road crossings, and backing up but, they put the most loose snow in to the cooling, lube area, in my opinion. Ski
  13. Power Sports World has lost a great one.

    been watching this from day one. very sad time, for the motorcycle world. Ski
  14. A 103 east of base camp

    you guys need to start on your accessorizing, and updating your current, or soon to be... new, delivered whips. helps with the wintertime withdrawals. rec'd another portion of the graphic kit for the snowbike, installed the front fork leg graphics. have the custom colored/braided stainless steel brake line, and all the goodies to make the bike street legal. (headlamp with high beam indicator, horn, rear running and brake light). just need the mirror, and a place to mount the plate, and a signature from a police officer, and the title, registration will be made street legal. laced up some black rims for it last week. waiting on my guy to true them, install new tires, and tune the bike on the dyno. (yes, it is getting tuned on the dyno). the yamahas have their own tuning programmer, where you can augment the timing, and fuel curves for the efi bikes. it is a wonderful thing. tinkering in the garage on winter long term projects gets me through the summer.

  15. Who's Snowchecking?....
