  1. The latest from OFSC https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.ofsc.on.ca/2021/01/13/no-change-for-ofsc-snowmobile-trails-at-this-time/__;!!ABXyrcI!d_5m4cSF8YAk49Aw06fTm6pmiARd2vFlu4Uzm1DN6nRl8b0NZyCJsVhjxOYSj-ogSC_t$ The OPP will continue to treat the trails as normal operations. There will be scrutiny on groups of more than 5. But expect education, not enforcement. Closed trails, helmets, no trail pass and aftermarket exhaust will continue to be high priority items for enforcement. Sean
  2. I'm expecting an update at some point this afternoon, but not holding out any hope it will be definitive. By strictest definition the essential travel order negates any sledding. But reading further you see where exercise and recreation is allowed. It will depend on how they define this within the regulations themselves. I've already spoke directly to the OFSC this morning and they are just as confused as anyone about this and awaiting further clarification. In the meantime, if you need to exercise for physical or mental health, I suggest you do it. Avoid trails that are red or closed. D
  3. We are currently discussing this. So far nothing is black and white... I will update you guys as soon as I have a concrete answer. I can say we are continuing to educate and enforce riding on closed trails. OFSC is pushing hard for us to deal with this issue.
  4. Well.... we don't have captains in the OPP so you're safe!!! 😁 I will say all provincial statues are officer discretion.
  5. Tweed is definitely in my area. I've not heard of this at all. In fact I was working that area on Friday. At no time did we turn anyone around. Really there's barely any snow anyways. If we get orders to turn people around, I'll post on here and let you guys know ASAP. I honestly do NOT expect to make that post. Sean
  6. We have not told anyone to turn around nor have we been directed to do so. The main covid issues we seem to deal with are "large gatherings" Many of you will remember several years ago when people were saying charges were being laid for trailer hitches sticking out without trailers attached. Simply not true. There's always a group that likes to create that divide and spreads misinformation. This is no different.
  7. Great question... we encourage all people to abide by their local health unit and provincial guidelines. While there is a strong encouragement to avoid non essential travel there is no legislation outright banning travel. I've not heard of any checkpoints turning people around nor is there legislation to support that. I know the OFSC has talked about trail closures based on covid numbers but they've yet to implement that. I can say we will be more strict about laying charges for riding on closed trails this year. Regardless of the reason for closure the rider will receive a trespass ticket
  8. Thanks! Always enjoy this group of guys. Looking forward to getting out on the trails!! All the best to you and your loved ones, hopefully 2021 is a better year for all. Sean
  9. It depends on how his license was lost. But generally, no he can not just get a sled licence and go on his merry way. And yes we can check the validity of his licence trail side.

This is similar to what is supplied with our FXR helmets... https://www.amazon.ca/Helmet-Buckle-Release-Motorcycle-Disconnect/dp/B07GFCMJMQ/ref=pd_sbs_263_1/144-7221595-0800522?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07GFCMJMQ&pd_rd_r=92a363b0-0246-46f7-a757-dc3829d50983&pd_rd_w=MLuI4&pd_rd_wg=egyiH&pf_rd_p=3885b243-7797-4c4b-b0ae-97ca9ec36283&pf_rd_r=6TV1VQ3M7HPRFRPRRF69&psc=1&refRID=6TV1VQ3M7HPRFRPRRF69

  12. All the helmet losses I've seen (and I've seen way too many) were the result of no strap, or the strap being way too loose. I've noticed many times this year people using the small plastic snap to "buckle" their helmet on. The snap that is used to secure the access strap out of the way. Not caring or noticing the strap dangling easily 2 inches under their chin. I've yet to see a quick release fail. Having said that, I'd probably go for the more expensive ones. Ours are a combination of metal and plastic. They are hard to manipulate with gloves and even bare hands at times. But they wor
  13. Hey Dave, great questions!!! We do use quick release buckles on all our helmets. I honestly can't tell you what brand as our equipment is supplied to us and comes ready to wear out of the box. I've never seen any failures bot personally and in a collision. When helmets fail in collisions it's because they weren't buckled tight enough or not at all. There are no regulations against the buckles Go to your local powersports store and check out what they have. I find some are more of a pain to use than others. Sesn
