    NSHM reacted to Fuse6 in 2020 Ski Doo Gauge Cluster Only Has One Trip Meter   
    Received my trinket throttle hand pump from BRP today. Sent them a message thanking them but a more useful gift would have been one of these manual counters we can duct tape to our bars to replace the Trip 2 that is no longer on the 2020 sleds.

    This is crazy.  In today's age they should be adding technology, not removing it.   It's like the compass, my 2010 Sea Doo had a compass for God's sake, like I would ever have a need for it on that.  Used to use the compass all the time on the sled back when you could get them.
    The second trip meter will be a huge loss.

    It really is! Trip meter 1 was for the entire trip and trip meter 2 was how many miles since last fill up.
     
    LOL, guaranteed!

    NSHM reacted to NH-Moose in 5 day Gaspe ride, commencing March 17th   
    Left Baie Bleue, 595 toward LaCache was a rip, beautiful trail. Had plenty of gas so we didn't stop at La Cache. Was overcast when entering the Chics, but sun peeked out for us on the east end. Glad we didn’t miss that trail. Into Murdochville for gas, soup and ailes. The plan was Caribou, but after talking with the guys from Oneida, it looks like the 8” of snow we were supposed to get friday is now ½” of rain. Their plan was to bolt back to Montmagny early and head home.
    We recalculated and came to the same conclusion, better to be in the truck driving than riding. So we ended up tonight in Mont St. Anne a day ahead of schedule.
     
    Chic Chocs were fluffy, tons of snow at the highest elevations. Mont St Pierre and north shore are really nice conditions, with only a few bare spots starting to show on some hills. Much better than the south shore.
     
    Maybe Amqui tomorrow, hopefully have time to ride 5 down and back on JG’s awesome ribbon of white

    NSHM reacted to poltodoo in 900Ace Turbo owners thoughts?   
    1200 was a great motor and sled. Regular gas which is always the freshest as most cars use it. My concern is longevity. Is 900t going to last 15000 to 20000 miles or more like the 1200 has. Turbo spinning over 200,000 rpm has skidoo created a 4 stroke that has a limited life as certainly the 2 stroke 800 class sleds have. At 15 grand to only get 7or 9 thousand miles which is one or 2 seasons for Quebec riders is not good. Plus 900t needs premium fuel, not at every stop and not the freshest especially in very small towns. 
    Last 1200 was 135hp 900 is 95hp so to stay close in power they have just the 600 2 stroke smoker. Don't feel skidoo considered the 1200 buyers when they dropped it for 900t
     
    My opinion not sure what to do except keep enjoying my 1200 for now

    Except when your on a bag trip 800 miles from your truck. Happened too many times with us in the last 12 years. Not worth the hassle. Fine if you do day loops

    After 10,000 miles any 2 stroke is a ticking time bomb in my opinion! For QC trails loving the 900T!

    NSHM reacted to Gullyrider in To off trail riders who can’t stay on the trail   
    People have an unclear idea of what the FCMQ is.  It is not some sort of large and powerful agency with unlimited resources with the 250 odd Québec clubs at it's beck and call.  It is merely a coordinating body whose employees, including it's Director-General, are under the direction of the Administrative Council.  This council is comprised of the elected representatives of each of the 13 administrative regions, as well as the Federation President.  Those representatives are elected by the member clubs in each region, and are subject to term limits. FCMQ presidents are elected from the ranks of those regional representatives, and are chosen by the administrative council through an electoral process. Only the permanent staff are salaried employees. The Administrative Council, including the President, are all volunteers.  To sum up, the FCMQ does not tell the clubs what to do.  It coordinates, advises and liaises with the Provincial governments.   It is the clubs that tell the FCMQ what to do based on regional and provincial discussions, and not the other way around.  Most times, when folks say the FCMQ should do this and that, they are unclear on what it's proper function is, and how it operates.
    As for off-trail trespassers, the clubs themselves are acutely aware of the issues, and do their best to hinder these entitled, disrespectful jerks.  However, as is the case with most volunteer endeavours, resources are scarce, and it's a sad commentary when those resources must be directed into installing thousands of metres of snow fence rather than towards more productive activities such as signing, brushing, bridge building, etc.
    Right of ways are negotiated by individual clubs, and club directors are the first to know when there is a problem.  We were fortunate, in our club, to have had this problem diminish somewhat.  I even had a landowner, with a mix of arable land and wooded areas, congratulate me on the good behaviour of our riders during the previous season.  This, after years of problems with "free riders" on his property.  I do not know to what we can attribute this change but, hey, we'll take what we can get!  Most other area clubs have not been so lucky.

    This really is becoming a big issue and the land owners (understandably) are not going to put up with it.  It will hurt the entire sport.  
    We do as much of the adventure type riding as anyone, but each rider needs to know when and where it’s acceptable and to what degree it’s acceptable or it threatens this awesome sport.
    As Rev indicates, more education for everyone will help. The Zecs and Crown land, unless marked otherwise, are, to the best of my knowledge, allow snowmobile activity. But this topic needs to be on the front of every conversation moving ahead.
    Lets hope it can be managed before major damage gets done to the system.

    Some things will never change. This is one of those things. The consequences are minor if any are caught. Which they never are. So it will go on.
    Outlaw tracks longer than 146” on trail, no lugs bigger than 1.6”. Just like they are tough on modified exhaust they can do same thing with this. 
    By all means allow it up on Mont Valin maybe near L’etape and Chic Chocs. But everywhere else NO WAY. If caught sled impounded and (drivers liscense suspended for QC residents) penalty needs to be something that will deter this behavior. 
    Personally If it were up to me public shaming would be in order and a good old fashioned flogging. 
    Trails are for trail sleds. Very simple. No need to cater to these off trail guys who cannot respect private property.

    Folks, It is impossible to start a snowmobile by towing it. If anyone accomplishes the feat make sure you send it to Guinness Book Of World Records as you would be the first to do it. Just sayin.

    .....or as an old wise man told me once, "if out playing in bear country with friends always carry a .22".   So I ask him "why a .22 as that won't kill a bear".  He says "It is not for the bear, it is to shoot one of your friends in the leg"....  Wise old man.  :)
