dont want to start a pissing contest but that was a pretty unfair assessment of the turbo. The 800's have a lot of recalls too, none of them are perfect. Will let the sleds speak for themselves on the trails. Merry Christmas !

thank you, no web cams north of caribou until camel brooks get his up and running again, he will soon tho.

Fort Kent groomed the railbed, its as smooth as it gets. Me Tyler and the boys headed out Friday night and headed to carter brook. We made a fire Hung out a while and headed to st. John, jumped back on the heritage trail and stopped at moose shack for a beer. St. Francis the snow was marginal, but carter brook, wallagrass and fort Kent was pretty good if you took your time. Put on about 50 miles. Also put in about four or five hours cutting brush and trees on 73 to soldier pond yesterday, a few more inches and we're ready to go. its begun boys.

Cool beans, surpose to get about 3" tonight and another storm for tuesday/wednesday maybe a good one with 8 to 12, it would be cool to say the least

Looks like a mostly rain event once more,man i am i getting sick of this stuff,we will be up the 29th,but looks like just to visit family,which is good,but was hoping for some short rides,even if i had to trailer a few miles would of been ok,but now even the crownweather is saying most all rain,i do think it is going to be cold behind it,but still no big snow storms in sight,this is really feeling like last year. Hope it turns quickly.
