  1. My 2 cents. North Bay health unit closed a bunch of trails and didn't stop a single a-ho from trailering somewhere else. A bunch of folks will suffer for someone else's stupidity. Enough said.
  2. A trail through SRF is Limited this morning....
  3. Dave became an instant friend on our first group meeting with him in Kapuskasing. We spent a couple of nights in Kap and rode local trails with him, OntarioF7, ApeXman, WhiteDragon and his daughter Lily. We had a great time, I'm close friends with all of these guys still today. My son Alex29 and Dave were very fond of each other and many things in common. Several seasons ago when the snow was scarce, I suggested having a group BBQ at my house, and some 16 people showed up !! It was a frightening experience until the day of, having never met many of them. Your father was in the group that weekend and had an oops, got thrown from the sled and injured his back or ribs. I was happy to have brought some Advil with me that day. A couple of seasons ago his primary clutch let go pulling into the Companion for lunch. I offered to let him use my garage and home for whatever he needed to see if he could get it fixed, but it was done. The others in the group came back to fetch him and the damaged sled. We enjoyed having him join us for dinner while waiting. He was one of several people I've had the privilege of calling a real Friend. There was nothing I wouldn't do for him, because he was just that kind of gentleman. I am a better person today simply because he was my friend. My son and I (seen in one of Nunz's photos) will miss him dearly. I had the pleasure of talking with Adrian on Friday ... I can say with absolute certainty that Dave is not completely gone, as his son has his father's voice and many of his "ways" when he speaks. I hear Adrian's voice, but I see his father's face. R.I.P. now means Ride In Peace.... so Dave, R.I.P. my Friend.
  4. Have him check the engine hours at the dealership. Might have had the cluster replaced 1000 km ago ... sneaky way to improve resale value...
  5. Always when riding solo ... sometimes in a group too. Depends on the speed and crew ...
  6. Iroquois Falls has a couple of restaurants in town with trail access. On the way past there anyways...
  7. They are all must do once trails... then you'll want to come back to do them again and again...
  8. They now have a continental breakfast in the motel, which is new ...
  9. Minus 36 yesterday morning, school buses running as normal. Minus 31 this morning, school buses cancelled. Somebody can't add.

  13. Out of curiosity, why would you trailer to Cochrane ? I'd ride that day right from New Liskeard .... ??? Same thing coming home, Chapleau down to Liskeard ...
  14. Too bad we have to go through this every year and it's everywhere now... I wish there was more emphasis on trespassing during the driver training sessions....
  15. Doesn't get much colder than that... doesn't feel any colder anyway....
  16. If I read this right, your 850s keep blowing up ? We see a few every year too, not catastrophic failures (rarely) but seize one piston or the other ....
  17. Here it is, check it out .... Cut the paddles to 1.5" Gearing equivalent to 146" Freeride 1.6" version X package shocks and T-motion delete shims 42" front end kit
  18. Same as the 900. Scavenge pumps put the oil into the tank, the main oil pump takes it from the tank to feed the engine. It'd be difficult to have a proper and reliable way to draw oil from the tank without getting air. Then if you're too long on a wheelie or a climb and the oil doesn't make it to the scavenge pumps, it runs out of oil. Like I said, it's been tested. BUT -- it's not impossible.
  19. You probably won't either. It's been tested with the 1200, just too many ways to starve the scavenging pumps for oil and run the block dry. 900 lubrication system is similar in design and pump location.
  20. If it does, go buy a fistful of lottery tickets !!!!
  21. Evil could have used this yesterday and today...
