    Best Cold Weather Suits

    I have had the FXR Team suit with FAST. Cost roughly $1,000 all said and done, but very warm. Almost too warm for me actually. To the point I may be looking to sell it this year for a lighter combo that I can layer when needed on the cold days. I wore the liner in my jacket once last year and that was it. That was at -35 without windchill last year around New Years and was very warm. I wish I could zip out liners in my pants as that is where I am the hottest on most days since I am very active when I ride.

    Summer Projects

    That sounds like a ton of work as well! Props to you sir. I always say "I have more time and energy, then money" so I like to do everything myself.. These year I don't know if I have any of the time, energy OR money haha

    Summer Projects

    Not a busy year for me... Building a 3600sqft shop with office space upstairs and 350' driveway, extending our front covered porch to be a wrap around, ripping down our aboveground pool and deck and replacing with a two tiered deck, digging out our pond to extend it and adding a liner and rocks with a pump, replacing 2000' of wire farm fencing that I did last year with wood rail fencing. And this is just outside. I have to finish a bathroom and laundry room reno that I completely gutted and took down the walls in January, and refinish our upstairs hardwood thats sanded down waiting for stain. Then finish the drywall in our great room, install the new windows and door to the "new deck" and lay hardwood flooring. Oh and I am doing all of this myself while running my own company, and it ALL needs to be done by Sept 15th as we are supposed to be getting married in the new shop. But so you guys don't feel bad for me, she paints when the drywall is done or when she wants a colour change...

    2019 Ski-Doo Release Date

    I hope so! Makita makes awesome tools and I have a Freeride on order... On a serious note, I really didn't care for the colour at first. I have now grown to love it with it being my computer background for over a month. At the show it looked a lot better in person than I thought it would. I love the red BC XRS the most though.

    OK, I'm done. Last ride for the season at Missing Link.

    I agree the sled looks like a Polaris judging by the front spindles and possible the horizontal spring so far back being the Pro-XC rear suspension?

    Caution / Warning - North Bay truck & trailer Blitz

    Makes more sense. I thought there was a law somewhere that I missed for tandem trailers. I know the weight limits. My truck is a 2500 Duramax which weighs enough on its own. It is also a work truck that tows up to 12,000lbs of material. It is yellow stickered haha

    Caution / Warning - North Bay truck & trailer Blitz

    I usually just clamp the fronts like the old days. After reading this season on here about strapping the rear down in the trailer, my dad and myself both do it. The extra strap over the rear bumper takes 2mins and if it helps us talking to the cops less, its a good thing. I have a 2500hd truck with tow mirrors as does my dad. I told him I felt stupid extending my mirrors when towing the clamshell trailer since you see minivans and little SUVs pulling them all the time. But anything that helps to see more behind me is appreciated. Fully extended I still can't see behind the trailer, but can see the sides which is nice. On our last trip north, by buddy towed the trailer up with his GMC Canyon Duramax to save on fuel. That truck has normal mirrors and is a foot narrower than my truck to begin with. You looked in the mirrors and just read Triton for the 8hr trip north.

    Abitibi Canyon Loop? Worth it? Opinion?

    Unless you have any desire to ride some deep snow off trail. We like the west side of the trail for the hydro lines and tree sections you can play in. We went up 3 weeks ago and it was 3-5' deep as soon as you stepped off the trial.

    2018 Barrie Spring Preview

    Don't think this is the same Glen. Sounds like you're talking about Glen's Sweeping located just west of Barrie. I worked at the firehall with his son... great guys!
