  1. I think someone heated him up so mush he melted. Or just plan pissed him off.
  2. Looks like a great day to retrieve your. Machine. That is a deep blue sky.
  3. What part of Quebec do like to ride? I have rode all of Quebec from the western part to Gaspe. To me it's all great.
  4. At least track it in a little. A little groomer ride would be good for your soul. Lol
  5. This is a funny story about staying in Parent. Last January a young lad and I decided to ride to gouin Reservoir from Mont laurie. Well first the sled would not start from the cold weather. New battery fixed that. Very cold that day. As the day went by it got colder and riding was slower. Well we got Parent as the darkness was taking over. Before we even got gas I made the decision this is as far as we had better go. Went in to pay for our gas and I asked the lady how cold it was and how to get to the hotel. Her response was great. She said the report in the last hour was wind chill was 55 below. Then she looked at me and said and there is no f ing wind. Then she handed me a set of keys for a little motel room about 2 blocks away. The next morning she charged us , I think less than it cost to heat the room. If I ever stay in Parent I will be staying at her little motel.
  6. We came down the 386 to the lodge. That trail was good until we got to 63 and then it was terrible. I had heard 63 was not groomed very well all year. The trail use to come from 63 to the lodge on or beside the road coming to the lodge and now it comes through the woods from the west and goes out through the woods east. The lady just said that the groomer was broken all winter. It use to be a great trail.
  7. We were there as in pavillion La Verendrye last March and the trail going in to the lodge was terrible. Now 63 goes through the lodges front yard and the lady I think pissed someone off because she said they just stopped grooming the trail. Also she bitched about the groomer operator. Plus her gas was way over 3 dollars a liter and you had to take a certain amount. Now the 386 trail north of there was perfect as always. She said the groomer was a independent contractor. Wasn't a very good experience after riding 3 foot mogels getting to the lodge. Maybe the time of year. Long trails and small clubs I think.
  8. I don't get it guys. One trip meter is hard enough for me to remember to set ever morning. Besides I let my kid keep track of the miles every day. I'm there to ride my snowmobile and miles are what they are. 👍👍👍👍
  9. Put that honey back in the trailer. You don't want to get the track dirty. Lol
  10. That's not funny. Lol. Still young enough you don't have to wear a hat. Lol
  11. Want wish you all a happy 4th of July. Be safe and enjoy the day tomorrow. Living on the Canadian border there is a lot of Canadian friends that enjoy with us and it's great to have you here. Again be safe and enjoy the day.
  12. Hey JG. Many years ago David and I were on the old 386 trail north of Amos. Most deserted trail I ever rode on. Anyway I was last and David started waving his arms and wanting me to go bye him. Then off his sled and ran back on by me. Out of the snow he pulls a moose shed. I ask why did you wave me bye and his answer was I didn't want you to see it and get it first. Still have it in our cabin and we often laugh about finding it. Only shed we have ever found in Quebec.
  13. So sorry to hear of the flooding in your area. I live in lake Ontario end of the river and the water is rising very fast on this end as well. Like a foot or more in the last 2 days. They say the locks are closed down river and will be closed for the next couple weeks. Sure hope it doesn't get as bad as a couple years ago. Good luck to you all.
  14. Is this a Linq bag or made by BRP.
  15. Keep him . They are good rat control for you cellar. My kid in NC has one in his cellar and he's rat free.
  16. Lordy you are ready to go now. LOL I like your sled lift - mover. Is that home made or factory made? Thanks
  17. Happy birthday sir but I got great news for you. I'm 68 and i'm planning a trip two years from now. You got a lot of riding left. Lol. Have a good day and be safe.
  18. Thanks for sharing. Good thought about belt pieces. I'll check on Friday. As for the Arctic belt I'll discuss it with Jimmy my like a son Arctic Cat rider. If it could be done he could do it it. Lol
  19. It was after the belt issues. The replacement belt only had 400 miles on it from the last trip year ago. Going to try something different this weekend. Going to stop at a dealer tomorrow. There is a parts guy there who is pretty nice to talk to. The boy bought me a new ski doo belt and I will try that first.
  20. That's funny. Might of happened tho because I haven't been able to see the motor that came with it. Not like any 1972 models I use to work on.
  21. Spoke to my oldest last night about his ride. 8 of them went and they had a blast. He did blow a belt but it was bought at the same time as our other 850's and we had a problem with that belt also. They were Dayco 5034. We have used Dayco for years without a single problem. Now wondering how long they were setting on the shelf. Something else wondering if this has happened to others is the trails were very hard and fast. He said the rev limit would come on with 3/4 throttle. Was going to 8200 rpms. I guess the limit switch was doing its job. Just wondering if anyone else has had to adjust clutch clickers or has anyone experienced the same thing. Thanks
  22. Well the report is in. He Had a great time and loved my sled. His normal ride is a 1200 and he liked the lighter front end. His words. Said the trails were hard and fast and all went well. I think I will get off my ass and head to Mont laurie on Friday night. Either the gouin Reservoir or Clova.
  23. As for the 850 lasting mine is being put to the test this past weekend. Oldest son is with his group riding the LSJ area down to Quebec city and back to the truck today. Friday I got a report saying how many miles where on that old belt. Hope he cleaned up the belly pan. Something about just going past 80 or maybe 90. Haven't heard a word since. David said no new is good news. Lol
  24. I think I would be asking for a new motor. My dealer made that a selling point for buying ours. Check your oil level. Sounds like crank is broken. On the good side we were in Quebec last weekend and had a long ride between gas stops. Both our 850s went 130 miles and took 24 liters to fill. At that mileage and this is hard to believe we should be able to ride 200 miles plus on a full tank. Granted we were not real hard on the throttle.
  25. Congratulations to a true snowmobiler who has rode all the Quebec trails in his life. . Bill is a man who is concerned with all riders and their safety while on the trails. It's been a pleasure to meet him and call him my friend. Keep riding now Bill and forever. Congrats
