What is with the Ape Hangers, ah er mirrors on the 2009 Dragon? I am good buddies with Mark (twodeere) and told him to be careful! I would be afraid of riding with someone with mirrors larger than a school bus!! Ha Ha Ha, just kidding nice pics sounds like you guys had fun.

A $50k truck, 2 sleds at $10k each and no $100 fairing to keep the road salt off the sleds? Priceless!

We were putting the sleds back on. We both have covers for the sleds and I also have an heavy duty canvas type salt shield that covers the front end of the sleds and works quite well. Thank's for the estimates anyhow. I also own an $5000 enclosed trailer that my partner was using to get his sleds up north.

Confusion, I like the sled a lot, I'm still getting used to it I purchased it late in the season last year and did not get a lot of miles on it. I am on the far south side of New Lenox near Delany Road so the few times it snows enough to get out we are always down towards Manhattan. Send some information to my e-mail when thats going to go on maybe I can get out there. It sounds like plenty of snow in the forecast maybe I'll see you at Fritzs or Bit of Balarney. I get a lot of comments about my mirrors, I think everone is jealous.

RPM where is a good place to drop in that area and also do you know where to get trail maps? Looking at John's forecast if the lake effect happens and the trails are ok I may have to check it out. Thanks.

I droped at Napier Road and M140. its right on the trail. The gas station is right there, they have maps. There is quite a few other places to drop but coming from the south that seemed to be the best for me.
