    Best Cold Weather Suits

    I bought an FXR FAST suit 2 winters ago, and it is the warmest suit I've ever had. I wear a layer of the "Dri-Wear" from Marks Work Warehouse underneath, and I'm never cold. We run all day long on the "big trails" in -20 to -35c at speed and there' s no issues. I have the bib pants, and when it's warm, I take out the liner and open vents accordingly. Would highly recommend one. Best time to buy is at a Royal "No Tax" sale or the first day of the Sled Show in T.O.

    Yamaha may be done-not good for industry

    My 2 cents on this.... I've been a loyal Yammy guy for over 10yrs having 7 sleds since then. After that release on Tuesday, I look at what they're offering, and I can't help think that I'll be in a Cat Dealership ordering a '19 T-Cat or ZR9000. Yamaha only offers the new I-Act suspension on the Limited, which is a crappy color combo IMO. They're regular season selection isn't much better. Cat offers much more on all of their sleds, as well as they have a few color options to chose from. I'll still have the Yammy reliability under the hood, but the decals are gonna have a big pussy on them, not a tuning fork.

    Sell me Ontario vs. Quebec

    Wanted to get out your way Luc, it just wasn’t in the cards. Well be doing the loop out your way next year!

    Sell me Ontario vs. Quebec

    We've rode up North 3x in the last year, and all mid week riding. If you stay off of the A trail, you'll be fine. Everyone seems to ride the A and no one ventures off of it. Cochrane is the place to stay. You can loop to Timmins, the Canyon (The East is the best part), Kap and back, and theres nice riding for a few hours around town. We did New Liskeard last week, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again! Looped to Temagami and back, Kirkland Lake and back, and even stretched it over to Shining Tree and back. Now...all that being said...we're headed to K-Bec next week for the very first time, and we're really looking forward to the experience!

    Nipissing Radar Runs

    His motor didn’t blow, his track blew apart at the finish line. He was doing 174.5mph. He’s a friend of mine. He was taken to the hospital and he’s got 3 broken ribs and a cut on his arm. Very lucky guy!! His sled is totaled. He’s got the current world record for fastest Naturally Aspirated motor at 178.3.

    Wonder what yamaha has up their sleeve....

    The new chassis doesn't need Power Steering. And I feel that I the SRX name is coming back with a Winder motor/turbo and it'll be Spring Order only.

    Bergstom ski savers

    I just switched my shitty Tuner skis over to Cat skis and added a shim plus the Bergstroms. Night and Day difference. You can actually steer the Winder now!!!

    Haliburton to Gravenhurst - How Long?

    Thanks everyone. We've actually changed up our plans a bit, and won't be going that far.
  13. ITG says that it's about 130kms from the West side of Hali into Gravenhurst. I figured a couple hours at a "decent trail" speed. A local boy from Hali says it's 5+ hrs!?!? Can anyone on here confirm timeframes for this ride? Trail type - Twisty, open fields, etc?

    rice lake oval races kawartha conditions

    Trails were updated today on the ITG. Pretty sure it's not just Tues/Thurs anymore since the ITG has been implemented. Districts can update any day/time, and most do when there's trails opening/closing. Correct if me if I'm wrong, but I believe Tues & Thursday are the "mandatory" updates

    What to do ??

    $1500 isn't much of price difference in the two sleds. If no engine changes, I'd haggle for the '17 and add some Accessories. Accessories are always pricey.
