BRP Vice President is addessing dealers on a webcast right now about something urgent. Rumor is delivery issues

Think about it. If there is still a massive shortage of chips would a Canadian company like BRP receive them before Ford, GM and Apple?

Baofeng has no chips to make radios and can't give me a date when they will see any.

Hopefully manufacturers start to see the impact of reliance on china and bring things like chip manufacturing back to NA.

There are a lot of chip manufacturers in NA. Some of the biggest companies and manufacturers of chips are in the states.

their cheap crap costs 10 times more in the long run, you will spend all winter trying to get repairs , likely have to sell the POS in the fall, cause still no parts, if you are still buying this junk, smarten the hell up?

my advice is free, your learning curve could be rather expensive.

So they have a dated contract with me?
I guess folks get the $500 back then?
Does a fellow ask for an extra year warranty?

Got a sweet deal on my new sled and dont think the dealer would do the same deal for a 2023 snowcheck if I refuse late delivery,,,If at all.

What do you have to say about these questions Ken?

Greatly appreciate your response..
