Any guesses when you cruise what the range would be on a tank?  We met a guy last week that thought he could get 250km or 150 miles per tank, does that sound close?

I hear they fall off after 85- 90 compared to the 850. I must have a fast one! 😜

Doubtful, on my first 1200 miles I was showing 14mpg. Leaving Tues for a giant loop will check again, hopefully better!

Maiden voyage...Running in standard mode, saddle bagging & pushing snow we did 18 on smooth trails & 15mpg on the day we were pushing snow @ 45 x 60mph....tank holds 9.5 gallons. Average speed at the end of the day was 30 x 35 mph with food, fuel & photo stops. 

Sleds ran at an average of 170F with one sled always running +2 in comparison to the other. Would at times fluctuate between 165 & 180F.

Good morning Joe. 

Eddy O & Liam did not travel with us on this journey. Eddy O did come with us a few weeks back to Caribou. Liam is a freshman attending Binghamton University & during school break he chose to stay behind & visit with the girlfriend despite speaking all year of the anticipated annual trip. Needless to say Liam lost a few favorable points with me....First year of college and he is ruined. Ha ha 

On Monday we left RDL, Tuesday Matane, Wednesday Maria outside of New Richmond, Thursday Rimouski & back to RDL  in 2.5 hours arriving @ 1130. A quick change, load trailer,  and stock up on Cadbury chocolate @ the neighboring fuel stop & on the black trail @ 1pm arriving in Pittsburg at 7pm with 2' + - of new snow to shovel to get in the door.  

Referring to supporting QR where do we stand with the QR referral cards written in French where the card states in sum & substance  we are eating / sleeping here because the business was referred too on QR? The entry level receptionists / hostesses we mentioned QR too were unaware of the QR website. The idea of providing the card written in French with contact information for advertising on QR is optimal. For purposes of supporting this site I regret I didn't have any cards to offer. 

Attached are a handful of photos depicting the fantastic trail conditions & weather we encountered.
