There's more snow than I thought there would be. My main concern is that the rivers and lakes aren't frozen enough. Any concerns on the ride?

I have a network of very good people in MB, ON and MN I rely on for current snow/trail conditions. Their info helps me determine where is the best place to ride at any given time.

They're plowing ice roads and bombers are pulling trains of ice houses out.

The Ballard trail is staked from Baudette to Oak Island.

More staked trails going in this week.

They have put up a plastic enclosure in the past to help keep you out of the wind.

Got to get you back to North Dakota for a ride.

Well it is a long drive now compared to what it used to be for me. If it would snow like it did when I would come up and ride, I would have a hard time not coming back up. Need that cross country snow......

See how this winter pans out. Just might show up at your door one day....

Hope the new 800 runs great for you this winter.

I will be in touch.
