Just curious to see what the most km you put on a sled on one day. Me and a friend put on 580km in one day from North Bay to Cochrane. What a long day, it started out fun but I couldn't wait to reach my destination after the seventh hour.
I put on 275 mile in 4 hours on lake of the woods 2 years ago we stoped 4 times once at a winter island resort for a pop then to Kenora for a pop and a smoke then to another island resort for lunch etc then to Souix Narrows for a pop then back to the angle loaded up and drove 3hr to home.We figuered with the time we spent at our gas and soda breaks and lunch that we averaged between 95 and 110 mph on our little ride.
250 miles in Northern Ontario . Left camp at 7 am and made lots of stops with 11 riders and got to motel at 8 pm . It was a good day . Most of the guys went right to bed ....no partying that night ...lol
Cough.....BS.......cough...Snorat. Average around 100mph? Come on, if yer gonna sensationalize at least make it believable. My wife and I put on 300 miles in a day almost exactly as we pulled off the trail and into the garage in the eastern U.P. Rode during the week just after the trails were like piss on a platter and before the troll migration north.
I am telling you it is true.If you ever rode what the Angle map says "Ride the Edge" you would believe me the trails on the Ontario side of Lake of the Woods are like an Interstate Highway and wide as 10 sleds and you can hold it wide open for miles on them things up there.John Corniellie will also vouch for me on this as he has been up there and when you get on the lake you better have something bigger than a 440 liquid under you or you will be eating Dust or burned down.I rode with My step father and his dealer buddy that day and we were running 700s we left the cabin at 12
0 and were back at 4
0 because I had to load up and be home intime for the wife to get to work and it is a 3 hour ride home.
I did exactly 600 km's last year, alone, going from my cottage (notre dame de la salette) to Maniwaki, all the way to Parc Laverendry, to Mount Laurier and south to N.D. du laus where I put up my tent and slept in -30 Celcius. I had every snow conditions, from 1' powder at first, to 80 km of straight railway and some snowcross type trails. Took from 10 am to 9 pm to doo and another 2 hours the next day to get back to my cottage. I will probably try to doo another long trip next week. I'm Planning to go from my cottage to Parent (for those who know what I'm talking about) so if anybody in the area would like to doo this trip, we should hook up somewhere.
Rode from just outside of Kitchener,Ont to my Parents in Sudbury. First day started at 9am @-4c pulled into the French River (Cedar Lodge) at midnight -31c. Not much screwing around, but a few unplanned detours. 325miles. Next Morning had an easy 3-3.5 hour ride and made it there for lunch. 5 days 1100 miles total for the trip
150-200 miles days is farily normal, I have to travel an hour to ride most of the time so me make a day of it.
Last year i did a day ride of 340 miles, from Elliot Lake to Dubreuilville, there was 3 of us from the start. But the guy driving the ski-doo broke the rear suspension(you know right where they always break), he did 420 miles in 1 day to catch up. He went from south of Chapleau to Hearst. Yes that is all in miles. Those where awsome rides.
2 years ago we went on a 230 mile ride... from noon to 5 am the next day, the last couple hours were pretty rough.
to top it all off, the jack shaft bering went out in my snowmobile about 75 miles away from home :-/ it made it back though.
In the Up of Michigan ,We Rode from Detour Village to Kinross, West to Trout Lake, continued west thru Cut River, Over to Newberry, North to Grand Maris, back east to Pine Stump and Back to Paradise and then back to Detour. We left @ 8:30am eat late lunch at the old Alversons in Grand Marais, had a Buffalo Burger at The Yukon Inn and back at Detour Village and inside @ 9:10 pm. Miles were 396 miles Great Day of riding.
450 in one day. It was the best ride ever for me. It was so good because the day started with crap conditions. Icy and worn trails. I was depressed. Then out of the blue it started snowing like crasy. The weather network said clear skies so i wasnt expecting anything. It was night time and snowing and me and everyone else just felt like riding. We got 7 inchs of fresh powder in no time at all. We just drove for hours. It was the best. I noticed a few other people with the same idea. The snow was so good it didnt stick to the visor. I was crusing at about 70km, I was warm, The Mach was running like a top, It couldnt have been better.
It was just Me, The Snow, The 800 Triple all combine it was heaven. I am still kicking my ### for having stoped that night. I should have just keeped driving. Nights like that justify why i spend the money to enjoy this sport.
I hope everyone has had one of these rides this year.
Done 250 miles one day in the bancroft area on some very ruff trails made for one long day. On another ride in New Liskeard we done 300 miles in one day on some of the best trails that I have ever seen. Would go back their in a heart beat.
But on the other hand, that was 90% off-trail with my trusty Jag AFS... Got 210km on the meter when I ran out of gas - a VERY fuel-economic sled! That's not bad cause in sweden gas costs about $3.60/gal...
Last winter we ran 300 miles (480 km) from Elliot Lake to North Bay in the rain for 11 hours. the only good thing was the trails had been groomed the day before and east of Sudbury we didn't see another sled.
Back in '92 we ran from Baptiste Lake to Petawawa and back 530 km (328 miles) in one day. It was on a '90 Mach 1, so it wasn't immensely fun. We left at 8 AM and were back at midnight. We should have stayed over in Pembroke but 4 of the 5 were on layoff and a couple of guys were carrying on about the extra cash blah blah blah.
I guess this winter we ran from Timmins to Hearst around 220 miles, that was a good day
