Everyone gets there panties in a knot, the start of winter is still a week away. Come the first of the year it will be cold and snowy like it is every year!:drinks:

Riding is rarely good before the 2nd week of Jan. anyway when everything is open and connected. Patience grasshopper! And this is coming from someone without any! LOL

Good early season conditions in the Gaspe. Thin around Albertville and Amqui but good outside town.

 

Saint Irene for lunch.

Looks like pretty good conditions.

How's the new 900 Turbo?

Awesome! The ride is much better then my XS chassis that I had been riding. We got about 440km, so far no complaints at all.
