  1. Sounds like there will be riding there for the American Thanksgiving. That is always a positive sign of good things ahead.
  2. Great pictures!! Good to see white stuff starting in the Gaspesie!
  3. It does present the potential for an accident, however responsible riders and proper signage should limit it. Every driveway above mentioned also comes out to the highway. The landowner must accept responsibility for his safety crossing the trail and pulling into the highway. As snowmobilers we need to make sure we do our part by stopping at every driveway to check for traffic. The government has put a lot of money into this trail, let's make sure it is not irresponsible snowmobilers that make us loose it. Certainly an area I hope authorities strictly enforce loud pipe laws.
  4. I think it is sad that the residence are putting up so much resistance, mostly about noise and speed. I suspect in the summer the motorcycles with straight pipes make far more noise and travel by every bit as fast!
  5. I asked my dealer about this, he had not heard of it, but said he would check. Has anyone got the second trip meter configured?
  6. That is a good looking picture!
  7. Things are certainly looking up even if it is a little early. We need a big cold front to come from the north to freeze the swamps, brooks, and lakes....then bring on the heavy snowfalls.
  8. That is the spot. I think Marco and Julie are family

  11. Condolences Andy. I will be up for a visit when you get back.
  12. I have always been a huge Choko fan. I did buy a new Adventurer jacket last winter, I am going to sell it. As said above it is an awesome jacket at -30, however most days without any venting it is too warm. Too hard to control temperature with this jacket.
  13. Happy Birthday Eddie. Hope to hook up this winter on the trail. It is time for us to do another run to the Saint Paulin Relais!
  14. I rode with two guys last winter with new ones that never had a seconds trouble, and both say they are the best helmets they have ever owned. I did have some issues, but believe they are now resolved with the new shield. I would not hesitate getting one, they are an incredible helmet. Only advice I offer is ask the dealer if it is the second generation shield. I also recommend a spare cord, regardless of the helmet a spare cord is always a good idea.
  15. Some spectacular pictures Jean Guy. The first 7 are awesome and the one with the couple moose in the birches are certain ones that should be displayed.
  16. What did you order for a new sled Grumpy? Make sure your shield on the Oxygen is the second run serial number.
  17. Plan to ride, just don't plan where to ride. Good snow will be somewhere...you have to be prepared to wait till a week before to pick the best destination.
  18. They are a very warm helmet. I recommend sizing it with a thinner balaclava. On super cold days pull the thicker one out....bet you won't need it often.
  19. Ferry was working perfect and on schedule out of Godbout today. BTW not much more going on in Godbout in the summer then winter.
  20. Send me a message when that rabbit turns white and I will be up!! LOL
  21. Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing a summer view of winter areas.
  22. That would catch a Groomer for sure!! LOL
  23. I believe only buying permits online is a good thing. (The other side of the story). Club members like Jean Guy, Bill, and many others spent many, many hours helping snowmobilers get the proper and complete information for their permit. Often sending back emails to get everything needed, then taking this information and money to the club secretary. Then the permit has to be filled out and mailed to the permit holder and to the Federation with at times considerable financial risk.....all this is done by volunteers. I believe having the Federation computer do all the work and then the Federation send a check to the designated club for their portion is long overdue. Thank you to all club members and volunteers that sold us permits in the past!! We certainly appreciate all your personal time you have given up in the past to help us get our permits.
  24. I suspect you will be happy with the 4 stroke. The good thing on top with these is, no concern about detonation!
