Wednesday 1-24-18 Afternoon Update

Greetings and welcome!

012418eI took the Indy Trail out for its first ride of the year. Until I trust it a little I usually stick to the roads for the first few miles where it is an easy recovery if I had a breakdown. Everything went great and I had a blast. I took Landing 11 to Buck’s Ranch to Chickadee, up to North Fork Rd and back, across to Landing 11 on the F trail, and over toward Rapids Resort before heading home. I would guess it at about 20 miles or maybe a little more.

The roads had a nice layer of ice on them and a little free snow. I was still dipping it in the snowbank every so often. Chickadee was half and half. The right half was nicely groomed with plenty of free snow. The left half was plowed down to the ice. The F trail across to Landing 11 was great, and so was the F toward Rapids. Sure there were a few spots that the groomer hit a high spot or there was a bump or two where the trail is rough, but I enjoyed  a good ride with plenty of free snow on the trails.

Here are some pictures..

Now I am off to go and look after that must-do stuff that I blew off to go riding.. No Regrets.. except that I didn’t have a friend along so that I could go another 100 miles..

Have a good night and thank you for visiting!

  1. Nice pix.

    You mentioned your Indy Trail is air-cooled and simple (relatively)…. Back when i owned my own scooter (from ’95-’04), i put almost 12k miles on that ’96 Arctic Cat Z-440 fan in those 8 seasons…..many of them in the Silvercliff/Wolf River region….. It was pretty durable, got decent mileage, had enough power for my needs, handled fairly well on the twisties, was easy to work on (didn’t have to do much to it except winterizing it and repairing/replacing wear and tear stuff) and i never had to worry about it overheating in marginal snow….. I did numerous trips on that sled….from day trips here in chicagoland/SE Wisc, to long weekends in your neck of the woods, to numerous trips all over da Yoop, to weeklong x-country wilderness trips in Ontario (the longest being 900+ miles)….. I loved that sled, but it started to nickel and dime me the last coupla seasons, so i donated it to charity…. Just wanted to share…..

    Happy Trails and Think Snow!
