    INSURANCE!!

    Does anyone else use a traditional broker anymore ? I have been using the Guarantee Company of North America for over 30 years. I had to change brokers twice to stay with the company due to brokers shutting down and/or dropping the company. I have the following covered with them; House Daily car 2011 Sonata (40,000 km/year in the Mississauga area) full coverage Dakota truck 2006 full coverage Sled Trailer Vintage 87 Monte Carlo SS appraised value coverage Vintage Honda Nighthawk 750S liability 1995 Wildcat 700 liability, comp 2001 Thundercat liability, comp 2015 XF7000 LXR full coverage That's a lot of hardware. Brokers tried to get me to change but could not get coverage for the bike or the MCSS in one policy. I have no reason to change. Rates are pretty stable. I need to scale back the toys but some are worthless so I just keep them.

    Trailer decision

    Make sure whatever you get, it has enough internal height so you can leave a high windshield on the sled. Many clam shells are too low with the top down. BP

    Was the recoil always broken ? When I was a boy, the neighbor just used a bale string. That was when my friend and I on that sled would ride over the fence lines from field to field in the deep snow of the 60's. It rarely got stuck.

    I try to stay away from the big K as much as possible. Been burned too many times. BP

    I believe that service SN gets most of the zinc out of the oil that old flat tappet engines need to reduce sliding wear. This is to reduce catalytic converter contamination from zinc. Good old Valvoline VR1 still has the zinc in it though.

    Anyway, Big Pussy........Right on, Brother. No more time to worry about oil changes, I gotta get back to replacing the wheel bearing/hub on Mrs. Whit's Lacrosse. I can hear the hammer blows and the cursing from here.

    See this explanation of why synthetic oil is better etc. If it's on the internet, it must be true. https://youtu.be/tYkg0oDUXs8

    The only way I am going to get rich is to keep the money I earn and not throw it away. I use quality materials and since I have two feet and a heart beat so far, so I am quite capable of doing so myself. All this work that I do by myself, for myself, limits my time wasted watching the endless crap about Trump. And you know what ? Endless things are learned doing so. This experience is what is so lacking in the world today. Never before in the history of mankind have so many known so much about so little. Never before in the history of mankind have so many known so little about so much. The problem today is that the masses are scared shitless to work on anything because they are told they can't. Well I can and I do.

    The oil and filter has been in the sled for 2 seasons. It's time for a change.

    I scored 2 jugs of Mobil 1 0W40 tonight. $26 each. Now I need to price out an oil filter at the Yam dealer for my YamaCat. I have a whole list of replacement filter numbers from every maker but will start with the real filter. The Cat oil change kit was $65 dollars last time I seen it.

    On our last ride to La Reine from Cochrane, we stopped stopped at a Beistro on the left of the first intersection. Had lunch, bought our 3 day passes, then went south down the hill and got gas at the gas station. They also had maps and passes at the gas station. Back north to the trail and then east to La Sarre. This was a year or two before the trail closed.

    Abitibi Canyon Loop? Worth it? Opinion?

    The factory PLASTIC plate holder would never last hence I got me a laser cut 1/8" stainless mounting plate cut up to mount in the factory location right beside the light. So far no OPP issues but that could change. I figure they are pretty busy with more pressing problems. My previous open bed rusty steel trailer had the plate in the C channel beside the tail light assy. for illumination.
