    Baofeng audio quality

    So we have our crew all on Baofengs now but we're finding some people are really hard to understand, especially the ladies. I suspect speaker mic quality is the issue. Radios were sourced from various places. Apparently l am one of the easiest to make out. My setup came from Roy at Baofeng...

    2017 Ram Delete

    Have a buddy that the dealer is telling him he needs $5k in EGR maintenance. The truck is out of warranty. Can he just remove the exhaust stuff and add a program or does the EGR stuff need to come off? He doesn't care about extra power at all, just wants reliability. Any gained fuel economy is a...

    What happened to Kijiji?

    Am l blind or did they got rid of a lot of subcategories? There's no separate sled parts category anymore. You can't filter by sled brand? I was trying to do a tire search and that was a lot harder than l remember.

    Everyone prefers to go left?

    We've got some novice riders tagging along lately and they are getting some of the skills down. I've been doing this for a long time and they were asking me why side-hilling and powder turns are easier to the left? I think most riders feel the same. It may be because engines are typically offset...

    Stuck Straps

    I've seen a few guys carrying short nylon straps with loops in each end. Great for saving from lifting from your ankles. They are short enough to leave attached to the stuck sleds ski loop after a pull. Where are people picking these up?

    Living in a 5th wheel, travel trailer or camper year round.

    I have a friend with a dream of living on the road. I think winter would be a problem even if the unit is winterized. Has anyone ever done this? I think if you had a permanent spot with hookups and hoarded it in you might have a chance. Moving around day to day has got to be a challenge. What...

    VW

    Any TDI owners on here? It's funny listening to all the talk on the radio. Some of the 'experts' are so clueless on the clean diesel subject. There's no doubt the lawyers are salivating. If they come out with a fix I foresee many owners saying 'no way are you going to wreck my mileage' I'll...

    My truck stolen from Petro Can west of Calgary

    Just got home from three days in Sicamous and my truck was gone. It was parked on the service road like everyone else. This thing was my baby, not many of them left on the road. I have done lots of power mods to the Powerstroke and kept it up well. It is insured but I know the book value will...
