Thanks guys, it's been alot of fun so far.

I don't think you have to worry about keeping up with me unless it's lunch time! LOL

Speaking of riding up here. The annual ATVAM Fall convention is in Roseau the Weekend of September 19. There is a trail ride and mud run at the Roseau/LOW Sportsmans Club recreational area that Saturday. They are expecting 400 machines to be there. Should be a blast. If anyone wants more info I can e-mail the flyer.

Congrats! Does your have the new Can-Am power steering?

Where did you find a 2010 model in stock? Did they have any of the 2010 2-ups?

Thanks guys, and ya it has power steering (very cool). I got it in Bemidji. They did not have any 2-ups, and I don't believe they are going to get any. They do have a 650 xt in camo coming in. I wanted that one, but did not want to wait.

By the way I have so many miles on it because Beltrami Island state forest is connected to my back yard and there are trails everywhere!

    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
