  1. Got my answer, looks like I'll be registering very early for next year....

    "Because of the way the law is written, snowmobiles manufactured in 1995 can be registered as an antique until April 30th.  Effective May 1st, snowmobiles must be manufactured in 1994 or prior."

     


  2. Found this article recently...  https://www.snowtechmagazine.com/off-trail-snowmobile-trespassing-the-devil-made-me-do-it/

    "Those who cry they have nowhere to ride should be reminded that buying a snowmobile with a deep lug track was a voluntary purchase. You don’t go buy a high powered rifle to go deer hunting if they only allow slug hunting in your local area. Nor do you use the rifle to go duck hunting. If you want to use that new rifle you’d better find where it is legal to do so.

    The notion that it is an obligation of the club volunteers to accommodate riders who want to go off trail and break laws is absurd. If these riders want a different experience and opportunity, they can take their machines to locations where that kind of riding is legal and acceptable, or they can roll up their sleeves and do the work to create such opportunities – just like everyone else has. Not all riding areas will be able to have legal off-trail opportunities. Just like your rifle, you can’t use it everywhere hunting is legal."

    Very cool overhead view of Ragged Mountain on your map.

    Glad to hear you were able to get through Alexandria (even though it was rough!).  Past trail closures on 11 made your loop impassable.

    Yeah, part of that trail is right on the river and floods out often making in impassible. This was never a problem in the past as you could take the Lake trail to get through to the lake and points north, but now with that trail gone, there is no way around. Hopefully the lake trail will get sorted out and rerouted someday as it makes things much easier for me.


  4. The Club house was open, We ate lunch there on Monday. Did 112 Miles out of Bristol. Rode south to Franklin, picked up the Northern Rail trail to Canaan, Headed east to Dorchester stopped at Baker River for lunch, headed south to Plymouth, then to Hebron, and Back to Bristol. Left Bristol around 8:30-8:45 and made it back to Bristol by 4pm. The trails were very good for the amount of snow we had. Baker was rough, as Was the Alexandria Ledge Climbers trail. All in All a great day.

  5. Well sadly, the rotary shaft seals went on the STX, I suppose better now than in the middle of winter. Oil leaked out filled the belly pan and leaked all over the garage floor.....All cleaned up and back together. Just need to run it it up to temp and burp the coolant system. I also wire brushed, sanded, and painted the trailing arms as well, even found a set of NOS decals for the trailing arms.
