      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Too big.

Unless your mudding or maybe running tracks it's too much. I beleive it also has to stay on class 2 utv trails.

It is too big, I rode one and the power is awesome! But, the machine is too small to handle that much power, just asking for driveterrain problems!! It was fun to ride though!!! wink

The T-Cat has a built in system to prevent drivetrain wear. It's called a Spike Load Dampener Rear differential.

By definition, anything with a motor larger than 800cc is supposed to be registered as an OHV and wouldn't be allowed on either Class 1 or Class 2 ATVs trails.

No power steering on the T-Cat. They call it a 1000, but the dispalcement is really 951cc.

The current laws that are in place were established when the biggest machine was 700cc. Now we have Polaris and Arctic cat who have surpassed that mark and possibly Yamaha with their announcement. I think that was supposed to come out today.

HMMMMMM. Gotta go check.

the announcement has been delayed by Yamaha. Guess we'll have to wait and see if there will be a bear worthy enough to chase the big cat out of the woods.

I believe they have maybe changed the way their displacement reads on the MSO to 799.9 cc. I have read in the past when you caluculate it out, the Can Am 800's are actually slightly over 800cc.

All of the Can Ams that I have seen are registered as a Class 1.

That's what I'm talking about! Yamaha,Honda, or Suzuki could easily use several engines to put in a wheeler, but will they?

    • nice and neighborly like let them know you feed and have bird houses up and enjoy the birds. ask nicely he not try to kill them. i also believe its not legal to kill purple martins as they are not considered a nuisance bird like sparrows and starlings!!!!!!!!  not saying get beligernt or nasty!
    • I picked up a bottle of Old Forester the other day for something new. I thought is was pretty good. Plenty smooth over some ice. 
    • We have a couple both right next to trees but also close to the lake. Both have been full of Martins for several years. I don't think they have an impact on the bugs but they are very enjoyable to watch and listen to.  They also only do the dive-bombing when the babies are young and getting ready to fly, the especially bomb the dog and he doesn't even care!   I'd highly recommend putting a few houses up, the plastic gourds you can buy work good also.
    •   Not sure what you would have me say. You can't be in your own driveway because it bothers the birds?
    • be nice if they were back in St. Cloud...  I liked that place....
    • I caught one in a live trap couple years ago. Personally I'd try to rid yourself of them.
    • I grew up with purple Martin's. They seem to like power lines nearby. They eat all sorts of bugs. The diving never bothered us.  As far as the neighbor, I'd have said something.
    • This was my experience, may be completely different than others. I put up a house in my back yard, less than 40 feet from my house, pole was about ten feet tall. Had to remove a lot of sparrow nests until the martins found it, but I did have martins move in. They were beautiful to watch fly for sure. Unfortunately they would dive bomb anyone that came anywhere near, maybe with a taller pole that would not happen? They would fly silently up behind you, then squawk right as they went past. I knew I would not put up the house the following summer when I saw my neighbor, who was working on his boat in his driveway, swinging his landing net at one that was diving at him. From watching them, they would mainly catch dragonflies to feed to the young ones. By the time the mosquitos came out at dusk, the birds were all done flying, so they did not help with mosquitos. This was just my experience. A lot of people have houses and enjoy them, my guess is that if the pole was higher maybe the birds would not see people as a threat. I still have the house, if I ever move to a lake I will try it again.
    •   Yep you are right. I did go to the Sportsman's warehouse up in Anoka and St Cloud when they were here. 
    •   I think you are thinking of Sportsman's Guide- they are in south st. paul,  Sportsman's warehouse was in Woodbury.
