    Cochrane area conditions

    Just got back from 3 days in Cochrane/Kapuskasing area... Maybe I got lucky on the times/trails I was riding but we had great conditions! Thursday a small ride down the A to Iroquois falls and back, trail was good considering traffic the area had over new years. Friday morning was bumpy to smooth rock, but I have rode way worse. From there on out excellent! Smooth rock to Kap and some side trails in between. Saturday morning from Kap back to smooth rock freshly groomed again, and hard pack from the cold night. Heard the groomer was coming up from Cochrane and more table top trails. Came around to top side into Cochrane which was less travelled. No complaints here for first ride of the year! They are definitely grooming as much as they can to keep up with the traffic.

    What about Wawa?

    I am hearing alot of conflicting reports now... Called Jones in wawa and he said they hardly got any rain. Regardless hoping for the best for whoever is there now, as this is probably the last 2 weekends for most! Let me know how it goes!

    We aren't schedules to come up until Thursday, hopefully the warm temps will loosen things up! Would hate to be up there this weekend

    How did you make out with the rain?

    What about Wawa?

    Booked into the Wawa motor Inn for March 21-24. Weather forecast is looking pretty bad for the next couple days with rain followed by cold temps. Looking ahead into next week it's supposed to warm up again, so hoping this will loosen thing up enough but not wash it out. Any suggestions? First time to the area, thinking to try the "boondocking" scene if the trails take a hit from this rain...

    2020 Yamahas

    My point exactly, and significantly more than what my 2018 cost.

    I guess I got lucky on my deal than haha... Buying a Sidewinder over the Thundercat was certainly a no brainer, glad I didn't wait until 2020.

    Ya I hear what your saying, but you also won't be spending MSRP on a Sidewinder, or any sled 2 months into the season either.

    https://aber-sno.com/new-models/2019-arctic-cat-zr-9000-limited-137-black-26570 I was basing my comparison off of MSRP, they are very close... Arctic cat definitely seems to have lots of left over inventory to clear out. I look forward to hearing back from them tomorrow on the price OTD!

    Where are you buying a Thundercat for 14k??? And 21k for a Sidewinder is a bit of a stretch... Not saying they are cheap, but the gap to any other top of the line high hp sled is really not that big. Especially if you get one with the 0% finance, which I have yet to see from another manufacture.

    I am a local here and very familiar with the trail... It was on a summer maintenance only road which turns into a trail. Very icy conditions, peak of a blind hill with slight bend and running directly into sunlight... at least that is what I gathered coming up to the sleds being loaded onto a tow truck. Main thing no injuries.
  13. Anybody have a track for an Elan? Doesn't need to be good, just in one piece and usable for around the cottage. Thanks

    Night Riding

    I agree with seeing the incoming headlights. Living in the GTA, by the time I get to the cottage or riding spots it's dark, and can't wait to get out. I find I can see the terrain of the trail much better, and almost always can see the incoming sled before they are coming straight at you in a corner. Less traffic at night also, but always have a full tank of gas, especially in northern Ontario.
