So we decided to load up and put in at the gravel pit (Normana) just North of Duluth, we took a quick walk up the trail and decided that, well, there's enough for cooling but it was gonna be a rough one. AND CORRECT. Many places it seemed had less than 2 inches and the trail was not very forgiving at all. Some really beat up sections from logging activities made for a nice pants shitting moment or two with some really deep ruts. We headed up toward Two Harbors, MN...not sure how close we got but certainly to the "enough is enough" mark. It was fun but not ideal. I decided to leave my shocks the way the team had them before ...just to see. Like skipping a rock across a parking lot!!  So, be dialing those down and I think a softer spring in the primary is gonna be needed too. Other than that...new sled is a freaking riot and I missed the 800 torque ZERO ( @f7ben is a faggot  :lmao: ) Of course, we were never in a spot to fully pin anything...unless we were suicidal. Ran across a sled dog team twice...second time was a tad scary but without incident. Just a reminder to be careful out there. Not another sled in sight or sound...and for good reason. The "clicks and bangs" were frequent...and got annoying. Meh...either way, mid-December riding is a WIN!!! And it was a good shake down run for my new-to-me sled. This thing is stoopid!!! Gonna be sore tomorrow as I am clearly learning now which mucles and joints were punished today. Definitely need more snow here.

I have to admit, some of the people on this site are " BIG BASTIDS " in sledding. Nice trucks, nice trailers, latest and greatest in sleds.

Looks like beaner trailers are pretty fashionable now. I remember when they were to object of ridicule. :news:

 

the 250 mile ride to jackman will hopefully be the extent that sled sees a trailer this year then a 2 mile ride to storage end of season at the dealer.  I don't want a sled in my garage next summer.

We had the gimp crew with us this weekend. One guy in a wheelchair and another with 2 fake hips. Put them on a 280 horse turbo sled and they’re Superman! Get off that wallet and live a little...you old grumpy fuck! :lol:

He looks like he's eyeing the throttle.  Better watch him closely.

The local club is getting ready to go out for the first time of the season.  We have about 10" here in town, but closer to 2' in the higher elevations.

Not much...with the traffic this week it will get smoked pretty quickly. Typically the more it snows this week the bigger the rollers. Just trying to get some before all the yahoos show up. :lol:

That blows.  To much traffic right now. And with little to no base it really doesn't help at all.  Last time I rode over Christmas and New Year's was '99 up in Brimley. Great snow , but way to much traffic.  Probably won't be going anywhere til next weekend
