  1. Seems like a tremendous amount of work every season regardless. I like my method of putting fuel in and riding. End of season put in trailer and repeat next winter!
  2. 2100km Loop Guidance

    Id say the chances of that loop that early are slim to nill. Especially the 83
  3. Tow Machine for Snow Machines

    Bought 6 months ago new 17' f-350 gas. Traded the old 350 with 285,000 miles diesel. Couldn't be happier with the switch. $9000 cheaper for the gas, a little less power but won't have to take out a second mortgage to get to 285,00 miles. Could put in a new crate motor for half of what it cost to keep the diesel running. Plus diesel here is 40 cents a gallon more right now 10 mpg all day every day but I do have 35" tires on it. Same mpg with the diesel according to my buddys. Cant justify it, my 2 cents
  4. Saddlebag Trip Planning?

    I never make definite plans. Usually decide on the ride up which direction we are going and that's it. Call ahead at lunch where we think we will be, if full, call another and we are off! Don't want to keep to a schedule, to much of a hassle.

  8. 10K miles: Service Suggestions

    I changed the jackshaft and driveshaft bearings at 11,000 miles on my 1200. I would check the track mine started to come apart at 10,000 miles but was studded. My buddys 1ce ripper lasted till 13,000 miles and ripped apart. My 1200 has 16,000 miles on it and will run it again this season.

  12. Tell Me About New Brunswick

    You have to take a shuttle from Ponte A Croix to Cambleton which I have done. You can also cross at Edmunston and through Biencourt. Moose Valley is Beautiful have only ridden the Northern part of NB but also plan on exploring more myself this year
