    2019 Riviere du Loup Area Trail Conditions

    He absolutely loves the new helmet. No problems with it. And he couldn't be any happier with his new 600R. He is now Ricky Racer and darn hard to keep up with! FarmerOld tried his other new 900 Enduro and found out he shouldn't have put the HD rear springs on his. After trying the spare and loving it, he is now like Mario Andretti after winning a race. He is grinning ear to ear. He is extremely pleased how the spare sled handles and rides. Note: I have moved to rm #554 in the new section. Very nice room. mike

    Yesterday JAK and I rode with GKW to St. Pamphile and GKW continued on to his rig. He got a reading of neg 19 in the high elevation just before Hiboux Club house. It felt it. The new Choko coat came through with flying colors. Last night drinks with Gaf, Ed and Dan. Thank you Gaf for the drink and getting in touch. Have a great trip. Later in evening it was catching up with the Maritime Province crew., Turns out the one year I worked in a Maine border town, I used to go to a bar at the border to meet beautiful Canadian ladies. Andyman came to the same bar to meet beautiful American women. Always great to see Andy and Steve and crew, safe travels finishing your trip guys.

    ferry kaputt !!!

    Spoke to two riders in RDL this morning headed for the ferry . After telling them if may or may not be up and running, they called and were assured it is now in fact running daily.

    Hi Steve, not sure at this point what my departure date is. But if I am here on the 26th, a drink it is. Sounds great! mike

    Today rode West with JAK and met GKW at St. Pamphile and the 3 of us rode back to the hotel together. Conditions great! In big field GKW pulled alongside at trail speed and gassed his new 900T. Wheelie and gone bye-bye. New Choko coat (Adventurer): 2 big thumbs up. Toasty warm, so well designed and so well made. Saguenay Bill has been trying to get me into one of these coats for years. You would think by now I would know to listen to him. Glad to know it was my old coat and not my old age making me cold. mike

    Hi Terry. Trying to figure out why I am so cold when I ride in the past couple years. Its either old age or my 2004 SkiDoo jacket lost its mojo. Bought a new Choko. Nicely made jacket. Haven't tried it yet, having problems with a pulled neck muscle, so resting today. Need you to stop by so we can cause some mischief. I checked, our names are not on Levesque's 'Do Not Serve List'.

    Went to the SkiDoo dealer in RDL today. Unless I missed something, looks like the Arctic Cat dealer is gone. This is the one that was right next door to SkiDoo. Not sure if there is another Cat dealer around.

    Yesterday, (Sunday), we went to Rimouski and around to Squatec. Plenty of snow, packed powder conditions, snow depths very good except a couple fields in Rimouski.

    A newbie just saying hello to everyone

    I had a 2014 900 TNT ACE that I put 11,000 trouble free miles on. Then I had a 2014 Renegade 900 ACE I put 15,000 trouble free miles on. Always, and I mean always, started in the coldest weather. I am in Quebec right now with my new 2019 Renegade 900 ACE. After a day and a half I am already convinced it is even a better sled than the first two, if that is possible. I love this sled.

    All kidding aside, FarmerOld bought two 900 ACE Enduros (non turboes).. He likes them, but says he has some tweaking to do on the suspensions.
