    What is your favorite snowmobile gloves?

    Choko leather mitts, when it is cold I put a thin pair of wool gloves on under them. When it is really cold I put gauntlets over the handle bars.

    Oxygen Helmets

    Day 1. Wore the same heavy choko balaclava I used with my BV2S, left at -22, made it 3km and had to stop and open the vents. The Oxygen is an extremely warm helmet. A bit of frigging with the visor up and down but got the day in. Switched the dark sunvisor for the yellow one, big improvement. At this point I was still unsure if this was a good purchase. Day 2. Switched to a thinner balaclava, everything changed. The helmet worked much better. The visor would still get some condensation but put it up a couple minutes and it is good to go again. My opinion with two days wearing this, it is better then my previous BV2S. It is quieter, better air sealed and considerably lighter. After a long day of riding you don't have a sore neck. Plus no mouth piece, a definite bonus!! Is if perfect, no, but worth the extra $$ over the BV2S. The Oxygen could be too warm for March riding I will add more if I see anything note worthy over the next few days of the ride. Just my $0.02 worth.

    2019 Riviere du Loup Area Trail Conditions

    Came from Edmunston to Lac Etchimin today about 220mi. Stopped at the golf course for lunch in St Pomphile (met mikerider there couple yrs ago), trails were awesome all day. Tomorrow night should be in the Valcourt area, new riding for me. One of the sleds today had the Hot Shot starter, it quit working too.
