  1. Have you had Dexter's doo this? Or other brands? .
  2. 440 fan doesn't scoot along quite as quick as an 850 Liquid. But I added a helmet light for that type of riding after dark. .
  3. Pic of road: Doesn't matter what the road look like, the bunny huggers with ski's strapped on top of their Subaru's are still gunna go flying around you like it was July! I even took a ride in the back of an OPP cruiser, sammiched in the middle, skeered to death that we were going to end up in the drink, and there I was in the middle of the back, drowning in 2' of water! We did make it out alive obviously, but I don't run that stretch of road too fast.... .
  4. Maybe it is an "out of country" issue? I tried it last night, and no-go then either. But it loads "complete" right away. I can reload, and it completes right away with a blank page every time. .
  5. Link comes up as a blank page for me. (but I git the gist of it by now) .
  6. Me and a chum spent a cpl days in a warm-up shack back in the 90's. We walked there b/c we knew there was a pot belleyed stove in there. We were glad for the [only partially crushed] empty's on the floor, so that we could cut them up and melt snow in them. .
  7. Who is asking this? Any guys? I always find that any border agent that is giving a hard time, is some chic that apparently has a power complex. The guys see a cpl of rednecks in a truck with sleds on and don't find any concern there. Not sure how we throw up red flags to the chics? Our crossing was at The Soo as well. I crossed at Windsor - prolly 3 yrs ago aboot right now, and was going to Toronto. I had a Siemens CNC control that needed work, amnd a fella that I have dealt with via mail and internet in Toronto would doo the work for me, but I didn't want to wait for the post both ways, and besides, who knows if it would make it alive. So I drew a chick at Windsor, and I told her that I was going to T town to get my "computer worked on". "All the way to T Town to get a computer worked on?" "Yeah, well it's not your every day computer." Yeah, I got pulled over and had at least 3 if not 4 agents crawling all over my truck. ... whatever .... .
  8. My . boy . eh? ... comming from Michigan to boot?
  9. You can leave your Wuhan Institute for Biological Warfare Flue cards home. Was up there aboot a month ago. .
  10. Well, don't feel too bad. There was one night when we were riding in the UP in the mid 90's and it was really late, and I'm sure that we were running on little sleep, and we just couldn't make it back to town. Started nodding off while riding through the trees wasn't a good plan, so we actually stopped for a bit to get a wink or two. (we were close to town) .
  11. Just to place a helpfull post in this thread - after eyeballing all your pics: Since I see that you have had the moniker "Killswitch" for over a decade now, I can only guess as to the reason for the name. Helpfull hint: A rubber band under the kill switch solves unwanted killings. You can still kill it if you hold the button down, but if you happened to just bump it - it will just spit for a second and then continue. Unfortunately - a rubber band only seems to last one season these days. The quality of rubber bands has seemed to deteriorate over the years. .
  12. I was wonderin' aboot that - on both accounts. Just couldn't tell if there was fence in there or not for sure. .
  13. Any explanation as to why the deer just stood there?
  14. That sounds like Brian Johnson? Who is taking the vids here?
  15. Oh heck, I'd longtrack that sucker! Matter of fact, a chum of mine did that 20 yrs ago! Here is a 162" tracked 550 fan Polaris, with light weight hood, snorkel intake, and no seat.
  16. I have never understood how the longer tracks git blamed for moguls? 121" is a special length that doesn't doo damage? But the same sled and motor with a longer track to disperse the weight and torque somehow builds whoppers? My 3" paddle may throw chunks, but my 165" track isn't going to dig holes. Especially when I can't go nearly as fast as the shorty's. .
  17. Well, in our case, it was likely winter of '02/'03. But that does seem to follow your roughly 20yr pattern tho. edit: I think that it was '00/'01 now that I think aboot it a bit more. (which sleds we were sportin' at the time.) Yeah, looks like Jan 4 / 01 I trust that they have a hydro line near there that looks like this? I know that;'s not Algoma. .
  18. Parry Sound looks high on the depth chart. We ran up there once many years ago when they got 5' in one dump. .
  19. One thing that I am envisioning is that you must need to "rotate" the camera digitally to git it to show up as up? Meaning that when you tighten it into the socket, "up" could be anywhere... ???
  20. That looks like the north one at Cross-over road, that is just slightly off the road and onto the entrance to the hydro. (as can be seen from the pic where the trucks are parked) It's been there for >25 years, and no-one has even known that it has been there for the last 20 yrs as the trail dog legs around it now doo to a bad bridge just south of it. The smaller shack is at the bottom of the dog-leg at Bauparlante Rd (5-10 klicks N of Halfway) and then the trail buggers off the hydro N/NE up to Cross-Over and then doubles back, where there is this shack. This update, along with the new one south of Halfway that I mentioned earlier, must be part of their prep for no Halfway. They must be gunna put a sign out on the road to let folks know it's there? This is right here, just east of the bottom of Tik Road. https://www.google.com/maps/@47.7275684,-84.3139526,2000m/data=!3m1!1e3 I wonder if they will doo anything to the smaller one at Bauparlante Rd or not? Just guessing that they are only aboot 15 klicks from each other via trail? .
