  1. Got about 5kms of my break in period done. More snow fell after this.
  2. I never expected to be reimbursed, and the $40 will not impact my life, just curious what others have experienced
  3. Which brings up another question. Does anyone receive reimbursement for fuel expenses? Not that it's much, but we use our own SxS's and chainsaws, and burn through probably $40 in fuel putting in and taking out trails
  4. Clubs do that? I have been helping staking trails here for 5yrs and generally it has been me and 1 other guy out on our own. Or me and a buddy and our boys.
  5. Strathroy did a pancake breakfast at a local Maple syrup house for our landowners, until Covid.
  6. Yeah, a couple days later someone assumed it was abandoned. Why would you wait multiple days?
  7. Because a club president can vote on what a groomers hourly wage would be, there is a conflict of interest for allowing such.
  8. Different industries have different standards
  9. I wouldn't be so sure of that information.
  10. Long story, but back in about 2003 4 of us were planning a trip to ride from Thedford Ontario to Kapuskasing. I was riding a rather Problematic machine at the time and didn't trust it to make the trip. I went in to Fast Track Performance in Dorchester, who I had been dealing with for parts for a while, and told Charlie that I needed a used sled that he could guarantee would make the trip. Bought a 2001 Zrt 800 that he had. 2 days later we were on the trails. About 10kms from from finishing the trip in Kap, I called him from the side of the trail, and let him know she seized up. He said drop it off when you get home. It took 2 jugs, pistons, crank and balance shaft to rebuild it, and he handed it back. No questions asked. I have now bought 4 sleds, 2 bikes and I would hate to guess how much other "stuff" from them, because of that customer service I received 18yrs ago.
  11. Got one of these on order. ZR8000 LTD
  12. Current ride is a 19 ZR8000. Have ridden everything from 470 SkiDoo to ZRT800x2. Ride everywhere from southern Ontario (home) to the northern corridor. And bullshit on the 100% of conditions. You trying to convince me that in fresh snow a 1/4 round pin sticking out of a track makes a difference? Not a chance. Either you haven't ridden a sled without studs in so long that you have forgot what it's like, or you are brainwashed. Oh, and of the 12 guys I regularly ride with, 1 is studded.
  13. Been riding for 30yrs myself, and have only had 1 sled that had studs. And that was because they were installed when I bought it. I have never encountered a situation that would prompt me to spend the time and money to install them. Riding within the limits of what you have is key. And I ride hard.
