  1. Textron may just want to dump it. Probably not a big money maker compared with ATV's and golf carts. May not fit the 80/20 rule. Time will tell and we shall see. My CAT dealer wouldn't say anything at the show.

    Snow in Kitchener - Friday AM, November 16th.

    You put the snow tires on and the snow will disappear. I don't have them on the car yet and we have snow. Who knew ?
  3. You could just buy a Thundercat and have the real thing including good skis and my cost less money. Now you could have the novelty 3 setting shocks from the handlebar if too lazy to change the setting. (If anyone does).

    INSURANCE!!

    The guy at the Dejardins booth gave me three business cards and a State Farm pen and told me they love sleds and are one of the few that sell sled coverage. I gave him a snort of derision and moved on.

    Helmet of choice

    I ask a guy at work who has been bragging about the new law if his turban has a chin strap.

    A Look Into The Past

    My buddy has a 250 and two 440 factory Cats race sleds. Also has a Yamaha SSR and an SRX.

    A Look Into The Past

    I guess if it isn't yellow, its an outcast. The club I used to ride with was like that so I left. I didn't fit in the clique. When I was about 10, the Bank of Commerce in Milverton had a Ski-Wiz for a while and then later a Scorpion. I thought both would be good for a boy who just had a pony to ride. The neighbor first tried a Sno-Jet , then bought a Ski-Wiz, and after it was worn out bought an Olympic. The one with the big black stripe. As I remember, none of them were very reliable. After continual repairs, the fad wore off and they stopped riding.

    I walk the parking lot at the Westway every year and at least half the behemoth truck/trailer combinations have no yellow stickers on the trucks and even less on the trailers. So glad I have a truck that is 6000 lb. GVWR and a single axle toy carrier that is 3000 lb. GVWR. The money in my pocket feels real good.

    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

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    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.
