    The New Sled Thread

    Haven't heard much news about QuebecRiders getting new sleds this year. Bought mine today. Last four sleds were 900 ACE's, needed something different. Maybe at 70 I needed one more hot rod before I get too old. '24 MXZ 600R two stroke short track (129).

    More Problems TQ83

    Resolved for this year Volunteers will be able to maintain the main trail through the City of Saguenay. Discussions have intensified over the last two weeks, so that the difficulties that were jeopardising the opening of the snowmobile trail that runs from La Baie to Jonquière, the Trans-Québec 83, have been resolved and it will now be accessible.

    hope everybody doing well, maybe with some thumb itching beginning! Not sure if it will help you or get it worse but I share with you some pics I like from past seasons, feel free to contribute yourself to the post! This first one was taken somewhere between La Cache and St-Paulin many years ago, not sure why but It always make me drooling when I look at it! 🤣 here's another one from a relay that still exist and is popular but completely changed from this pic... any thought?

  22. Catherine Paradis Posted November 24 at 11:19 a.m. EST The Trans-Québec 83 trail may open in the urban sector of Saguenay. The Saguenay Snowmobile Club has reached an agreement on rights of way with a farmer from La Baie and with Rio Tinto who agrees to renovate a bridge it owns on the route. Finally, a solution was found to bypass the site of the new service point of the SAAQ in the Arvida sector. Snowmobilers from outside will therefore be able to go to the various hotels in the city. It's certain that, at the moment, it's like plasters . [...] because sometimes they sell land where we pass, but there, it was too late because it was sold , explained the president of the Club des motoneigistes du Saguenay, Jocelyn Charest, in an interview with the show It’s never the same . We need a long-term solution so that we stop investing for nothing by changing the paths. We all have to walk in the same direction to have permanent paths for the City of Saguenay. A quote fromJocelyn Charest, president of the Saguenay Snowmobile Club He now wants a permanent solution for the future. ADVERTISEMENT The city is in the process of setting up the committee with their own members, and on our board of directors, we passed a resolution so that I could sit on the committee , he mentioned. The City of Saguenay's off-road vehicle committee currently has only one member: municipal councilor Serge Gaudreault. He has been campaigning for several months to consolidate the committee which will soon bring together elected officials from the three boroughs, representatives of all off-road vehicle clubs as well as Promotion Saguenay staff. The goal of the committee is to have permanent, long-term trails. 5 to 10 year contracts with farmers. If land ever sells, we need to know about it in order to negotiate access quickly , maintains Serge Gaudreault.

    Great idea Towing. Many will know where these pictures are from. This was a trip last February. Unfortunately they don’t groom the east -west trail that leads to the cave from the local trail that runs north and south. So have to ride a few km of ungroomed moguls. Was reading they are trying to discourage people from visiting the cave.

    With just under 23,000 miles on a 900 ACE Blizzard, I decided to get a 2024 renegade adrenaline enduro with a 900 ACE, pilot 5.8 skies (not the TS skies), and KYB front shocks. Love the 10.25 touch screen. Lots of learning time to keep me occupied until snow time.

    RAVE RE and Renegade are both 137. Renegade XRS has the best suspension Ski-Doo offers in a trail sled. Lynx is next step up, more like a "XRS+". It's geared towards stability in the bumps. Sit and cruise guys will be more happy with the Ski-Doo options. I like them both 😏

    Yep you are all spot on it: the devil's mountain relay/point of view @Pipemaster: I was thinking the new relay was on the same spot but maybe not exactly the same but not far because it was really near of the top of the big hill of the trail on the east side as of today. Being on the same summit the view is the same for sure The old relay with no electricity was quaint and very special. Even 23 years ago it was a 40 years step back going in there! Kristine when going to the toilet in the back that was a very small room with a wood step with an hole in it had the surprise to see her toilet paper piece rising back from the hole and flooting in the air from the mountain backdraft !!!😂😂😂 this one just aside the new relay Since my last visit they have built an observation tower near the relay that seems really nice. Here a pic took on the net

  34. Hey Guys Over the off season I added this to the trailer and I thought I'd share as it was simple yet very useful for storing all those LinQ items.

    Chic Chocs

    Only you can decide. yes the ride through from La Cache to Murdoch and vice versa is awesome. That said if you don’t hit it just right with a blue sky day then it’s not quite the same. i hope that makes sense. so much scenery on the Gaspe hard to beat north shore MSP and east to Gaspe. 595/597 yes sucks chic choc trail closed this year, but not a dealbreaker in my world.

  42. interesting unit. Mont Joli area. FINALLY, FINALLY The new resurfacer arrived early this morning. It was due to arrive last year, but with all the delays due to COVID, and also the fact that we were the last resurfacer to be delivered this year for Lamtrac, the manufacturer. All that's left is to attach the scraper at the back and of course a good fall of snow, so that we can try it out.

    Nobody paying attention to whats going on up there close to 30” of new snow in last 24hrs probably close to 3ft on the ground up there. Going to be some epic early season powder for some folks hopefully it all stays in place till the groomers get rolling!

    Thanks everyone. Got my hot rod, probably won't drive any faster than before, but I will feel and look younger on this new sled. And the excitement index for this coming winter is through the roof. Reading DooTalk, never heard of the 600R engine going down. Shop foreman at my dealer says they haven't had one 600R go down yet in the several years they have been available. Steve, I really wanted a Polaris but they are pricier. I worry Polaris dealers are so backed up on recalls that if I had a problem the sled may stay too long in the shop waiting for it to get worked on. The Matryx is still the best sled I have ever driven. And Eastmark. Tell Lisa she can try my new sled if I can try her new Cat Turbo!!! I thought my new sled would attract all all the women. But after seeing Mark's new Lynx, I will have to settle being his wing man. mike
