  1. That belongs to 0F7. He graciously let me ride it after I sold my 2 sleds for financial reasons. That picture was taken on Lake Simcoe last winter, and OF7 is in the background on his red viper. I really enjoyed riding the srx, so I tried to order one a few weeks ago from Fenlon Falls Marina (Yamaha dealer). The very nice owner contacted me and said all sold out, but have you considered Arctic Cat. I said no, I prefer Yamaha because my friend SJ was Mr Yamaha. He said it’s the same sled, same engine, and the clutch is new and improved. So I gave him my credit card number for the deposit and he was able to secure one for me.

  2. Yes Farmers are needed greatly, as they are always outstanding in thier field! If you ate today, thank a farmer, if you were lucky enough to snowmobile across their land thank them twice! It is more difficult for farmers to survive each year, the small family farms are becoming athing of the past.

  3. ^^^ I was thinking the same thing, boy did I start a boring snowmobile thread, but informative thread about the future of our youth. Polaris and Skidoo are definitely more popular on this forum and elsewhere.

  5. We are doing our landowner lunch again this year, havent had it since 2019 due to covid. We find the landowners like the lunch, gives them a chance to voice any concerns or if they need a new gate or whatever. A token of any kind is better then nothing

  6. 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

  7. Up to this year, always rode Cat 2-strokes - never had any issues, they were always good to me. Switched to Doo and a 4-stroke this year, 4 stroke I believe was my initial reason for buying a new sled, I also wanted to try something new as well & be able to more comfortably bring my kids on some rides with me - it was a good year, no complaints, I am happy with my decisions!

  8. I’ve been riding cats for last 11 years. Was Solely Polaris before hand. Only reason I switched was my poo dealer had moved and became too far to drive to. Made the switch to cat as dealer opened just up the road from me. I’ve got 19,000kms on my 2012 f800 and motor hasn’t been touched. Was hoping to upgrade last year but ex’s cost a lot of money! Lol!! Hoping to upgrade for the upcoming season and I’ll be likely making the switch to doo as I’ve never ridden one

  10. I only ride a Cat because at the time I needed/wanted a new sled, and being only a Polaris fanboy, I could not bring myself to ride a Rush because of how they looked. I have to admit I am surprised at how well this Cat has worked for me and how much I enjoy riding it, but if I were buying today, I'd be back where I belong, on Polaris.

  11. Landowner appreciation program that the OFSC has going, through some of our Platinum sponsors. I believe BRP Go is apart of it. Districts are recieving Tim Horton gift cards for each club to hand out to Landowners. Our club does gift cards already through our club sponsors and fundraising, CTC and Home Hardware cards.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. If the new Arctic Cat beats that Sidewinder then I guess a second Arctic Cat will be sold from a Yamaha dealer.

  21. Where about on Simcoe is that? The pile of ice in the picture made me assume it was GB for some reason. As for Yami vs Cat - I think the skis, clutch, gauge & colours of course are different, I am sure someone will correct me though if I am wrong. All Yamicat's I think only use the Yami 998 engine now, 1098 is no longer used - 998 was making more power from what I am told. Congrats on the purchase of course as well!

  24. Two Yamahcats in my stable. Incredibly happy with them both. I see no reason to make a move or upgrade. Certainly nothing by any OEM has caught my attention....yet.

  25. You can try to plant the seed and provide them with all they need so hopefully they are equipped to go in the direction you think they should go, but they will make their own decisions when they are ready. Maybe the boy will just be a farm boy at heart!

  26. Talked to my buddy today and his Gamma Rep told him that tracks are going up 30% in the fall and are going to be just as hard to get as they were last season if not worse.

  27. I had a track ordered at Delta for my sled. It came in February, and I kinda forgot about it. They still have my name on it, so sounds like a good time to get it installed now before they sell it to someone else, and I have to pay more next fall.

  28. I believe our district got 100 gift cards, 10 clubs in the district. I'm going to guess $10-$15 each, I don't have confirmation of the denominations.. Regardless its a nice gesture and is meant as another way to say thank you.. 😊

  29. Not sure, but it's a good idea. It's a small token of appreciation - sometimes a little can go a long way.

  35. I have not heard many good things about those tracks. I wonder if Composits will even be allowed in Canada seeing as they are made in Russia?

  36. Be careful with buying a Cimposit track. Mine didn't last 1000 miles before coming apart at the internal drive lugs. Had to fight with Royal Distributing for over 12 weeks to get warranty. The price was good but the product is very poor.
