  1. Yes I gassed up there a couple of weeks ago. Quite nice and easy access.
  2. 2500 miles on it so far. Some pretty extreme Québec conditions. Absolutely no issues. If it gets close to ice or fog, I plug it in and it’s perfect. Best helmet for me ever.
  3. Thank goodness! All is now right with the world 🙂
  4. I was told it is a land owner issue.
  5. As of last Wednesday, it was closed.
  6. Yes, it should be, but when 3 branches off after the small warming hut, it had not been groomed at all, then after st simeon, it turned to a singletrack, which brought us to a camp access (I figured that would happen based on the type of sled track), so then we broke trail for several miles, then back to a singletrack, which only brought us to another camp access, then the trail turned bad, and GPS showed we were still at least 15 miles from the ferry, so we turned back, since it was getting late. I was told by another group that it is a landowner issue that has not been resolved yet, at least as of last Wednesday.
  7. Did you go through your dealer for this? Mine did not know about it?
  8. I've got 1450 miles on my O2 helmet, and I have had no real issues. It iced up once bad, but the freezing precip could not be beat by anyone in my group. I'm coming from a Bvs2, and although that helmet was very good, I'd say this one is better, due to the field of view and ease of operation, does not seem to be as finicky. Most of my miles have been without it plugged in, but when things get interesting, or super cold at night, plugging it in has always kept the shield clear. It's a lot of money, but at this point, I'd say it is worth it.
  9. Be careful on the 3 past St Simeon, trail closure was in place last Wednesday, we could not pass to get to the Taddoussac ferry, friends of ours had to flatbed to the ferry crossing. Not good. We ended up doubling back and setting out the next am on an alternate route up to Valin.
  10. Get ya rest and get ready for the season! Be well ice...
  11. We are putting in at Drummonville tonight, and riding towards RDL. I've heard the snow is good, trails are groomed, according to FCMQ.
  12. Hey Ice, I’ll be your wingman! Sounds like my kind of work!
  13. Hi Tom, couple of us are thinking of leaving from Berniers this Friday and heading up and around Gaspie. Thoughts on leaving from Berniers?
  14. Hi, the medium skidoo linq bag easily holds 4 quarts of oil. And I would take that. I've done longish tours and bought oil wherever I find it, and leave the ones I brought only for emergency. Oil consumption on the new 850 not as good as the 800 I find so better to be safe. And absolutely tape the lids. They will leak even if unopened which can be a real pain.
  15. Its over, for now. Minister just suspended tax program, let's ride! http://ici.radio-canada.ca/breve/81479/victoire-se-lupa-quebec-suspend-le-programme-de-ta
