  1. what did you mean by "sketchy" section of the short cut?
  2. I get the braces and screws, but I wonder why they added a zipper.
  3. Yup, I agree on the sides/back of the neck gator. Kind of makes you wonder what engineer/designer was thinking.
  4. I also hate that it came with the amber sun visor. On a sunny day no where near dark enough for my blue eyes. I just bought the smoke one and put it on. That was not as easy as the instructions indicate. Even found a video from BRP where he takes it off and says how easy it is. Sure it was easy coming off, but the video didn't show how to put the new one back in. It's obvious how, but it still wasn't easy. Pushing and pushing but could not pop it onto the pegs. Needless to say now I am in one of those moods again with this helmet.
  5. Here is what I found. When my sun visor fogged, I put it up and just like you after a few minutes I brought it down and it was still fogged. But it seemed that once it was back down the fog would quickly go away. I'm assuming the fog goes away from the heat of the shield. What is strange though is if that is truly the case, then why does it fog in the first place? I was wondering if the shield is fogging on both sides but when lifting it maybe the garage is only removing the fog on the side closest to your face, hence when you lower it the shield removes the fog from the front side???? Don't know, but I am mixed on this helmet. Want to like, then it only takes one small issue and I'm ticked off the rest of the day because I spent $600 on it. Then next day there are no issues and I love it. Rinse, repeat, etc.....
  6. Yes, forgot about the exchange rate, sorry! I never buy early anymore because I never know with the weather how much I will be riding. But even at $300 USD for annual pass I feel like this year they missed the high expectations they've been know for in the past.
  7. I have contacted them in the past via email with good success, however I asked them a question this year back before Christmas and haven’t gotten a response yet. Granted there’s essentially no snowmobiling to be done in Pennsylvania but it is only $45 a year to register a snowmobile. For $410 a year, personally, I expect quite a bit more from the governing body. Can’t believe that in 2 to 3 months they can’t respond to a simple email. Also frustrated that their iOS app is so horribly slow and buggy this year. On top of it all I was there two weeks ago and the trails were not like they used to be. I’ve been riding Quebec for over 20 years and was always amazed how they used to groom perfectly flat trails they didn’t even need grooming. I had so many bumps I thought I was in upstate New York on tug hill.
  8. Thanks, I actually figured it out shortly after I asked you. Doesn’t appear that they have a restaurant though. Would you recommend this for someone that puts an emphasis on food? I’m not about roughing it, when I get done at the end of the day I want a nice dinner and a full breakfast in the morning.
  9. What building is that? I didn't know Parent had anyplace this nice to stay?
  10. Yes, I am pretty sure it is further east, but as I stated in my original post, I was questioning if I was remembering what I saw correctly. Based on what you said, plus my recollection from last week, I'd say the map is wrong. To be honest, not real sure what is going on the FCMQ, they just don't seem to have their sh!t together this year.
  11. So I was in Mont Laurier last week and I only went east on 63 once, but my memory was that I passed the intersection for 53 south before I reached the intersection for 53 north. I visit the area every year so I know the trails quite well and notice when they change the trail year-to-year. This is why I am almost certain I recall passing the 53 south intersection first because I remember thinking it was a new intersection this year. Can anyone confirm if the map is wrong? Also, when you turn on the grooming delay it still follows the trail as it is on the map. If the groomer data is GPS based then that would make the case that the map is correct and my recollection is incorrect.
  12. I went through the process for the first time last week without any problem, but just logged in to see if I could get past the page where you select a club and I cannot get any clubs to show up either. Last week I was using a chromebook laptop (obviously with chrome browser), today I am on my work laptop (windows) with chrome browser. Clicking search does nothing. Correction, I literally just went to take a screen shot and decided to click search one more time and all of the sudden now I get a snowmobile icon on the map.
  13. This is a situation where you wish the stuff you see in movies was real, like Liam Neeson finds this guy and puts a permanent stop to his cowardly behavior.
  14. As I was looking at my new sled I was struggling to find a good spot for my PA sticker and Quebec trail pass, so I am happy to have one less sticker on my sled. I was wondering if they would ever go to a ski slope style ticket that you put on your jacket, glove, etc... It will be nice one day when they implement technology to just scan either a QR code or RFID chip to check your pass.
