During our trip to northern Ontario. I saw @ least 3 chunks of track laying on the trail (plus the usual belt debris). I'd never noticed this before up there, but then I've never seen the snow lacking like it was.

I wonder if some throttle jockeys ride the same regardless of the amount of snow, not caring how it'll damage your track.

At a road crossing east of Apsley, you should see some of the chunks of pavement from the edge of the road that guys have thrown back when crossing. And they wonder why their studs don't last :rolleyes: .

This year has been brutal on tracks and studs. Of course having a new sled and ignoring the marginal conditions really doesn't help, but whatcha gonna do?

I just noticed today that I have about 10 torn lugs, one missing stud, and lots of severely bent studs. Oh well, I've been having a hard time not getting hard on teh gas at any and every available oppertunity.
