  1. To the bold, No. If you have your truck registered for 2990 kg and they put your truck on a scale and it doesn't exceed 2990 kg then there is no over weight. With trailer or without makes no difference. The trailer weight doesn't count against the trucks registered weight until it exceeds 2800 kg. Your example of an F150 pulling a trailer with a gvwr of 6000 lbs is the perfect scenario. You require a yellow sticker for both but there is no need to register the truck for any more than the truck will ever weigh loaded since the trailer should never exceed 2800 kg.

    Get ready to blow.

    As much as I am will to take her side in this, where is the other side to this story? What made the cops track her down at her sister's house for this breathalyzer? Did she run a red light? Was she seen weaving on the road? Did someone call in a complaint? (this I feel is most likely what happened. She likely left somewhere's else impaired and those people called the cops).

    Single axle hybrid trailers reviews

    Wow, Slomo you are one .....uh...... thorough dude. I've had an aluminum enclosed trailer for 10 years now and I don't think I've ever looked underneath it......lol I was thinking maybe I should change out the tires this fall since I've only ever changed one due to a blow out. That was 6-7 years ago.
  4. How exactly will they draw the line between what is "personal use" and what is "commercial"? Personally, I'd like to see the RV exemption done away with. Any trailer capable of carrying 3000 lbs should require an annual safety, along with its tow vehicle. I've never understood the RV exemption considering most don't move more than 2 weeks out of the year. My snowmobile trailer has brake issues at least every other year because it sits so much of the time.

    Arthur & Durham trail conditions?

    Left from Arthur this morning. Trails are pretty good.

    OPP checking that helmet strap ?

    I never strapped my helmet until I bought my Nolan a few years back. It has the quick coupler like most do now. That strap and double D ring stuff I could never do.

    Throwback Thursday

    I believe it did at one time. In 2004 our group ran from Shining Tree to the Watershed on a marked trail that was no longer in use. We ran the Sultan road to the end then followed the side of a highway over to where some old hunt camp was ( The Bear's Den?, something to do with bears anyway) and there was a trail from that hunt camp to the F. We had gone from Elliot Lake to Chapleau on the first day and I had remembered seeing the sign on the trail for that hunt camp. It wasn't groomed but the signs were still there. We were all tired, sick of trail riding and trying to get back to Elliot Lake as quick as possible. You could fly down that Sultan road until the logging trucks came then we had to climb the snowbanks to avoid getting hit.

    Shelburne Durham Markdale report

    Dropped at Snowmobiles Unlimited. Rode up the west side of Durham and up to Walter's Falls Inn for lunch. Rode the Doo for a change just to see what it was like. Missed my big kitty all day. 3-4 inches of fresh snow over night helped this area greatly. (I suspect other clubs will open a few more trails for the weekend.) We were making first tracks for the first hour. Didn't see another sled until almost noon. The railbed and west side of Durham are being ridden more heavily. We made our way back down the B111. Closer to Durham there are a couple fields with tops showing and corners in the bush are bare on the inside but over all really good ride. Durham's groomer is broke down and their Facebook page says they don't expect to get it mobile before the weekend. Too bad cause they could work wonders tonight. Markdale groomer was out today. Get out there and ride folks. The weekend weather looks damaging and the long range is more warm and rain. This may have been my last ride unless I can get north next week.

    2020 Yamahas

    On Cat's website the T-Cat is $16395, the Yamaha SRX is $20799. I know which one I'd be buying. And what Zoso is saying is that Cat is notorious for slashing prices near the end of the season and finding a T-Cat for $14k next spring is highly likely. Have a look over at Country Corners website. They are slashing prices to move the left overs.

    Any reports on how this area survived the weekend? Looking at riding Wednesday.

    Electric Snowmobile (Where's Monte G?)

    That was a year ago and they were taking orders to be delivered this winter. No signs of any coming on the snow. My guess, not enough orders to make it worth while.

    24hr Guinness World Record- Lake Muskoka

    Yes, individual record which is 1907 miles. I don't think there are any fixed dimensions for the track. And I agree, less time in the corners on the bigger track would be a big advantage so why wouldn't ya go big. The previous records were set on 10 and 11 km tracks. This was from a post on Dootalk. Guinness Book of World Record 24 hour Endurance Run is presently 1907 miles by an individual in 24 hours. This Friday, February 22nd, Greg Pepe of Clayton NY will attempt to break that record on a SkiDoo 900T. This will start at 11:00AM at Northern Marina in Clayton NY. The surveyed track is 31.0 miles in length and goes to Cape Vincent and back via the St Lawrence River.

    Elliot lake to North Bay via Suds

    Been a few years but I have run from Shining Tree to Elliot Lake in a day. Its was around 400 kms. I believe we left at 9am and got done around 7pm. I remember it being a long day.

    24hr Guinness World Record- Lake Muskoka

    Some guy from New York attempted to break the same record on Friday. He had a 31 mile track on the St Lawrence. He made it 349 miles with an average speed of 84 mph before the track blew apart.
