  1. Trail signage issues

    I rode Maine last weekend for first time. Overall, signage was consistent always depicting trail designation # and direction of travel.....something I’ve mentioned here before that you don’t always find in NH
  2. Trail signage issues

    I would be for it. I share same sentiments on signage and have used nhsa app quite a bit this winter due to poor signage. when I am studying maps to plan a trip I’m looking at trail/corr numbers. I as well don’t care to see Smith/Jones trail. If you want to dedicate a trail, great. Primary labeling should include associated number
  3. Repair shop groveton area

    You’re absolutely right. I do have a multimeter but rarely use it to check resistance so am not totally familiar but do understand the concept. not sure at all that the part will fix the problem. I did find your link....but unfortunately for me I’m in Rhode Island, sled rests in groveton until I return this weekend to ride. I do t set aside a whole lot of extra time to diagnose/wrench on things. I figured to take the gamble on this part because of that. Hind-site probably easier to diagnose as opposed to removing grip and heating element. But giving my situation if it gets my son on that sled quicker, and improving his riding experience then win/win? I will at the very least have the part in hand next time I’m north for a fix as opposed to being empty handed after diagnosis I do appreciate your input and will at least at some point run through the motions of resistance testing
  4. Repair shop groveton area

    Anyone aware of any small time repair shops near groveton/Lancaster? I’m having bogging issues with my sons z370 and frankly I don’t want to spend my time wrenching on this thing when I come up here to ride. I pulled and cleaned carb last night and we just returned from a 75 mile run, he said it was bogging quite a bit throughout the ride thanks for any help j-
  5. Repair shop groveton area

    I have to remove hand grip and heater to replace this????WTF I was hoping the case would split
  6. Repair shop groveton area

    Seems like throttle safety switch is part of same harness kill switch is associated with, so not really sure where the malfunction was. I just ordered what I think to be part needed so hopefully this will be a solution. $122, ouch.
  7. Repair shop groveton area

    No longer in need i disconnected kill switch and problem went away. Now just need to come up with a kill switch fix
  8. Affordable Trail Signs Every Club Can Make

    Great work. Those handwritten signs are at times too difficult to read. FWIW as a rider I prefer to see corr/trail numbers on signs....which is def not always included on handwritten signs. I plan most my trips by trail number, not the direction of a local establishment/eatery/donut shop etc etc
  9. 5.2 Acres and small "camp" on P152 in Campton

    Place looks well built
  10. Starting to look a bit like winter finally...

  11. Starting to look a bit like winter finally...

    Laid my first tracks of season yesterday as well. All in all it was decent, a little bit of everything....enough snow to keep the machine running cool. Although my sled is absolutely filthy from all the water bars. However, I was totally disgusted by lack of signage just south of Colebrook. Assuming this was the skibees trail territory.....fueled up at dixville peaks and planned to take corr 7 south back to Nash. Got a lil ways and seemed like the rug was pulled out from under us. Trails were awfully difficult to find with fresh snow, no signs and little finger trails going off in various directions. I had been through there several times with no issues, it just took us a few tries to find our way. Maybe that section was closed? But again no signage!
  12. Snow report?

    Any good news from this recent storm? im hoping to make the drive this weekend for some seat time
  13. Anyone planning to ride

    Looks like SDR and PRR are planning too open Saturday....I’m on the fence whether to make the drive curious if anyone here plans to ride?
  14. Anyone planning to ride

    Conditions have always exceeded my expectation....., unfortunately my plans have changed and this is not the weekend for me with holiday looming, my sons sports..... now my new plan is next weekend. Looking forward to first tracks
  15. What's the story with these trees

    I think they lie near that monastery ive always found them interesting, otherwise I’ve been curious myself
  16. New Trailer

    First trailer for sleds, second ProLine to own. Purchased my first enclosed ProLine in 2017 for work/construction. Spent lots of time/money setting up interior to flow well for every day needs. Trailers are top quality, built well and home grown in NH! number two followed me home last weekend. I plan to insulate ceiling for some reason.....load it up and haul machines north for the winter thanksgiving weekend. anyone in the market for a trailer Id certainly give these guys a look. A bit more expensive but the extra dough spent is well worth a long term investment. These trailers are top notch
  17. What incentives do NH land owners have?

    I don’t think your age matters. You seemed to have done some of your homework and have presented yourself fairly well On the topic (outside your last rant). I get the feeling folks around here are more than willing to listen and have taken you seriously enough. But without going straight to the owners doorstep and presenting them with an idea, and facts to back it up it’ll likely never happen. I would suspect that many landowners who allow riding In NH on their property may not be entirely educated in the sport, snow or dirt i used to be part of the off-road community. It took tremendous efforts to convince landowners to allow us to wheel. Many of their expectations on the sport were vastly inaccurate, it took providing them with facts and even inviting them to join us on a ride, offering up manual labor for cleanups, “donations” and the like. It wasn’t always a home run
  18. What incentives do NH land owners have?

    I’ve been lurking and following this topic since last winter wide open. While it seems to me your points are valid and has created some great banter. However, if you are so passionate about your home state and off trail riding, what have you done to facilitate discussion with landowners to generate interest in off trail riding. I’m sure this hasn’t been your only open forum.... btw, I’m 42, from Rhode Island and ride in NH and sometimes with my 10yo son. I dont always observe the speed limit but am always aware of the standing 45 when not posted and for the most part follow the rules as written. I’m also glad there is a limit to follow because I feel free range is not the best idea and having a limit should at the very least keep riders closer to it rather than having a fistful running down every straight. For the most part 40mph is quite enough to have fun in the twistys.

    i dont know WTF to do, trying to post pics here if you need something let us know thanks
  22. No new posts since 3/21/19

    I haven’t either, unfortunately due to my sons soccer season kicking into high gear. I hoped to ride this weekend to get in one last ride but gumption fell short.....
  23. ATVs on public roads issues

    I read an article a couple weeks back concerning this issue....sorry I forget where. As I understood it, it was more of the vacation home owner variety as opposed to residents rooted in the area. Ive only read that one article, don’t know all the information regarding issues at hand...however imo this could potentially cripple northern towns who rely on these seasonal activities to sustain living
  24. Off Trail Idiots get another trail closed

    In my travels this winter I’ve seen a lot more mountain type sleds, as well as what seems to me to be an equal amount of tracks off trail
