  1. I will still buy an Ontario permit in hopes that we get some local snow but my trips will be in Quebec this winter.
  2. I am glad someone else said this. All that was going through my mind when reading this thread, was that I will definitely be buying a Quebec permit this season if this loop is not open.
  3. My mistake. I thought it was 200kms from that gas station. We normally top up there when heading to Matagami. My buddy with a Summit 154 will burn through a full tank and most of a Linq can on that run as his machine is geared so short.
  4. Agreed. The OFSC will not allow a trail that is that far between fuel stops. The longest trail I have seen without fuel is from Amos to Matagami in Quebec and that is 200kms. Way too much liability for the OFSC and Clubs in the event that someone gets stuck on the trail and runs out of gas and potentially dies.
  5. The last time I did that run is when the old trail was still there that went to Missinabie. Maybe they will have no choice to but to try and re-open that trail?
  6. This is another blow to tourism in that area. So does this mean that you cannot get from Chapleau to Wawa anymore either?
  7. I saw you on the trail 2x last season around Seaforth.
  8. I switched to the windshield mounted ones last year and will never go back to the handguard mounts.
  9. I know one store that has a big sign on the door saying "All prices marked INCLUDE a 2.5% cash discount - if you would like to pay with a credit we reserve the right to increase the price by 2.5%".
  10. Not everyone is in that position. Its a lot easier for someone with no kids to do this. Not picking a fight but its pretty tough for a 45 year old guy with 2 kids in hockey or even worse, university to pay cash for anything.
  11. Do you have kids? There arent that many people who just have $25K laying around to buy a sled, bike, boat etc.... Even the ones that say they are paying cash are putting them on a HELOC. If you can get 0.9% or something like that, you are probably smarter to finance it even if you have the cash in the bank
  12. Its never the tether part that fails. Its generally the post and even that is a very very rare failed part.
  13. At some point, I will do the same. I give it 4-5 more years. I wont be too old to ride, but I will just move onto a new hobby. It wasnt many years ago that I was driving to TN or SC every 3rd weekend to race my dirt bike in the winter.
  14. I guarantee that 70% + of all powersport machines are financed one way or another. Either through a loan or on a LOC. There arent a lot of guys who can truly pay cash for a $20K toy.
  15. I had the exact conversation with my dealer yesterday. He said that on a normal year, 5-6% of people who Spring Break a sled dont close the deal. He said he is quite concerned because if that number creeps up to 10% he could end up with 40-50 extra sleds in the fall that have no flooring or terms.
