  1. Last week
  2. Yep, same as always. Must display sticker on sled as before.
  3. Anyone familiar with the new process for sled renewals? https://www.cp24.com/mobile/news/brampton-driver-warns-people-about-licence-plate-renewal-rule-after-receiving-hefty-fine-1.5898832
  4. Earlier
  5. There is a roundabout on Hwy 17 going thru Mattawa, its pretty small diameter, I bet trucks hate that one. There is one in North Bay too that is a block or so north behind the Hwy 17 truck Weigh scales. ( I use that roundabout route when I wanted to to avoid the weigh scales.
  6. We have a round-about in Angola, Indiana (just 30 smiles from me) that has been there as long as I have known. (45 yrs at least) https://www.google.com/maps/@41.6348666,-84.998897,113m/data=!3m1!1e3 It is the center of town and only 1 lane, and trucks doo fine there. Just in recent years when Toledo started installing them - have I experienced a 2 lane round-about. I had to have a "WHOA!" moment to figger out how this worked! And those are not nearly as large as the one in Angola at all, and my BIL says that "You jist let the trailer run where it wants to and be done with it." I don't think that I have been through one of the 2 lane jobbies with my trailer yet.
  7. Good luck with that thought. It would be a great thing if the roundabout designers took a half day and did a ride along in a tractor trailer so they would have an idea of the room needed for them to maneuver. I have to say that the St. Jacobs roundabout (one of the earliest new style in Ontario) has greatly improved truck traffic flow and the accidents that do occur are not as severe as when there were stop lights.
  8. The City planners need to do a better job providing commercial vehicles with appropriate truck routes.
  9. Yeah. they are not designed for trucks.
  10. I agree. The truck usually requires both lanes. Many people become confused, even though I have my four ways on and take half the left ane, many still speed up beside me. They realize it was a bad move in a hurry. Happens all the time.
  11. It was redesigned due to ice build up, not structural integrity.
  12. I remember all the hoopla about the 2012 Procross tunnels, the tapered ones, I even bought the replacement - 10 years later it's still sitting in the box with zero issues to date on the tapered one. Granted, it must have been enough of an issue to force the re-design, but I haven't experienced it at all. Lucky I guess
  13. They all buckle. Every seen a doo get caught on rail way tracks and doesn‚Äôt have to get hit by train to be wrecked ūü§£.
  14. Cat tunnels buckling eh? Talk to Dan or Pat aboot cat tunnels breaking during the Challenge Canada races back around 2000. Nothing new...
  15. I have saw all I need to on the forums with broken/damaged rails, very few track options, track failures, tunnels buckling, and the reports of terrible trail manners. with as much trail as we ride to get to our play areas, balancing on a single rail doesnt sound appealing. I will stick to my dual rails, thank you. Ski
  16. I hadn't heard any bad press or experience with the Alpha before, but then the Cat forum would be the last board that I would visit.. Have you spent much time on an Alpha?
  17. as Bartles & James used to say... "Thank you, for your support". Ski
  18. I agree with you ski. I have been on Cats since Rupp built their last sled.
  19. non riotX has trail spindles skis, and track too to get the offtrail front end geometry, track, gearing, chaincase, you have to go with the alpha rail set up. hence, my statement. Ski
  20. If the new Arctic Cat beats that Sidewinder then I guess a second Arctic Cat will be sold from a Yamaha dealer.
  21. I think the Riot has the dual rail system still - as far as I know, they have two variations of the Riot, one is more off trail, the X I think, like the High Country and the other is more on trail. edit: I just looked at the website and the Riot X does have the alpha rail, the non X does not....
  22. Been on Cat's since 2009, have had good luck with them, for the most part, unless it was self inflicted. once they took their Mountain, and then Crossover platforms, to the single rail (Alpha) suspension, I was out as a new sled buyer. just not a fan. I will probably ride and rebuild my 2018 XF High Country, until the dual rail comes back, or I quit sledding. Ski
  23. Any thoughts on a Yamaha dealer selling Arctic Cat snowmobiles? Is this happening elsewhere?

      Hi Stoney,
      I'm also about to discuss with CYT Bags about these touring bags, as I don't like anything that Doo currently offers. Looking at the tunnel bag for weekends, and then snap on the outer 1 or 2 bags for our week long trips. He told me to call back end of June once his boat stuff settled down.
      I was considering a battery blanket or pad, but with the block heater, should be ok. I always have a spare fuse for the face shield. I've decided to go the E LinQ. 
      Cheers
      Andy
