Holmes Foundation ATV Ride
Sep 27/10

Thanks to our friends and customers who combined pledge of $470.00 to the Holmes Foundation for Mark to ride in the 4th annual ATV ride in support of the Holmes Foundation on September 25, 2010. That was the 2nd highest pledge level at the event. The combined effort of all the participants in this years ride will ensure several more of our young Canadians get the technical training and job skills they would previously have been able to.
Sincere Thank You to ; Percy MacDonald, Terry Hope, Rob Davidson, Craig Flatley, Andy Knuth, Bob Draycott, Debbie James, Rob Phinnemore, Albert Hachfeld, Vito Manchisi, Chris Rastin, Dave Cockburn, Andrew Jonkman, Tom Pepper, Brent Maher, Joe Couto, Chris Howse, Mike McHale, Ken Sproule, Outdoor Power Equip, Rob Hooper

Muskoka Snow
Dec 11/09
You might have heard rumors of large quantities of snow falling in Muskoka. This is one of our friends homes in Bracebridge this morning Dec 11 2009. More than 2 feet with another 1+ft expected. Merry Christmas!

Hey Franco, we still have a few good Large Snapper Snow Blowers in stock
Franco says" You know there's lots of snow when you see Groomers out on the road helping to clear them.
That is the 1st time I've ever seen that. It's a mess up here! Perfect snowmobiling weather! Get the Long Tracks out!"

E-Tec report
Jan 28/08
We finally got out riding again this weekend past. Friday we rode from Parry Sound through Kearney to North Bay, Saturday - North Bay to Temisquaming and back, then returned on Sunday from Parry Sound via Port Loring to Parry Sound.
We had 2008 Rev-XP 800R w/105 Fastrac ll studs, 2008 Rev-XP 600HO-SDI & 2009 Rev-XP 600 E-Tec both w/84 Fastrac ll studs. We logged 500 miles over 13 hours.
800R goes over the 120mph on speedo on ice, has a range of 140+ miles per tank of gas using 1l oil per 140 miles
600HO-SDI goes to 115mph on ice, over 100mph on 1ft powder, range of 170 miles per tank using 1l oil per 160 miles
600 E-Tec performs identical to SDI but used only 1l oil in 500 miles, including the 1st 5 hours were automatic increased consumption for break-in. It starts and run flawlessly with 1 pull - this sled technology is a real winner, you get to drive a High Performance snowmobile that weighs just over 400lbs that will go 1,500 miles or more without worrying about oil. The biggest bonus is that there is no smoke AND your clothing does not smell like oil.
** Additional Note ** Feb 19, 2008 - Now that we have several hundred miles on our E-Tec it is really starting to pay dividends. The fuel and oil economy had increased tremenously. When riding with our 800's the E-tec stomps them at the gas pumps, usually $10 -13 less per fill up. Huge - nearly enough to cover Hotel rooms if riding 160 - 200 miles per day.

How Light for 2008?
Mar 8/07
Have a look at this sneak peek at under the hood of a 2008 MXZ XP 800, notice
how low the engine is. BRP has been testing this shaft over tunnel design since 2004,
check out the drive shaft mounted disc brake, look at the tubular frame with cast alloy
connection points that is 37% stronger than the REV chassis. Notice the standard on all
REV XP - electric gas gauge sensor. How about 8" more forward foot room and a 1 1/2"
taller riding position with an even lower CofG ! 51 to 53 lbs lighter with 6 more HP 
Now can you say "WOW"


Now check out how much lighter it actually is. A sample weight comparison in lbs.
The difference is even larger when we compare 4-stroke machines against the Rev-XP


One of the Best
Mar 8/07
I just received this nice letter from BRP informing me that Outdoor Power Equipment has maintained the Platinum BRP Dealer status that we have held since 2002. You can take comfort in knowing that you are dealing at a dealership that has the top rating that only 54% of all the BRP dealers have. That means that almost every 2nd dealer is not certified. Clic here to read our letter from Mr. Robert Lumley, Vice President of Sales for North America, BRP Snowmobiles, PWC, ATC and Sport Boat .

Rev XP
Feb 27/07


Here I am test driving the 2008 Ski-Doo Rev XP prototype. It is awesome. I was one of the original test riders on the first Rev in 2002 and the experience is once again similar. How did BRP manage to make this sled so much better that what we thought was near to the best before?
I liken this Rev XP to a loaf of Sliced Bread, the 2003-2007 Rev is the next best thing to it.
This machine is a whopping 50 lbs lighter than a 2007 Rev. That makes the REV XP 107lbs lighter than a Yamaha Apex RTX - yes you read this right - 107lbs lighter. 68lbs lighter than an Arctic Cat F8-EFI and 41lbs lighter than a Polaris Dragon.
Plus the Chassis is 37% stronger. Oh yeah, the 800R PowerTec engine pumps out 151 horsepower.
Add to this new cool multifunction digital read back gauges with a standard electric gas gauge and the package is near perfect. Did I mention there is 8" more leg room. You can now ride with your feet forward, under or behind. It matters not. Your tush is still sitting in the quiet ride spot on this mass centered Ski-Doo and standing up on the Big Whoop de Doo's is even easier than before.
Don't even kid yourself that this is just a made over REV, in fact the only similar parts are the Ski's and 1 of the handlebar switches.
The REV XP also has variable rate heated grips and thumb warmers. Choose one of several windshield heights. It is also 1+1 seating ready.
She is all new baby. Cool - Comfortable - Lightest - Fast
Better plan on owning 1, I am.

Mattawa Snow
Jan 25/06

This is January 21, 2006 between Bonfield and Mattawa Ontario

NorthBay January 20, 2006
Jan 23/06

The annual Boy' Weekend 2006 was once again successful for most. 6-8" of fresh snow, more in Bonfield and Mattawa. Bonfield area is definitely the place to ride at this point in time. North Bay is just starting to groom and many trails are not ready yet. The weekend score was; Ski-Doo 18/18 riders - 100%, Polaris 2/3 riders - 66% , Cat 1/1 - Arctic Jim managed to survive a single ride of a meager few hours on the snow, Yamaha 0% - most have it figured out by now. Poor old Polaris Paul missed his 3rd consecutive weekend of riding due to his new "Leaky 05 Polaris Switchback" but did have an awesome day riding Jamie's 06 MXZ 800X for 150 miles. Saturday concluded with a lot of fun being had at the expense of Jamie's good nature as we pulled the best hoax in years convincing him that his sled had failed when under PP's guidance. Pictures below.

Paul setting out in the morning


The Hoax begins after a good day - Sorry for grinding your nerves Jamie.
