Thanks so much for the kind words, guys! I am humbled.
We owe it all to Monty for having this awesome site and his hard work! 
My dad always said, "surround yourself with good people and great things happen".  That phrase is so fitting with all on this site! 
John

Anybody have a muffler for this thing that they would like to part with? I've searched around a good bit and still haven't procured one. I think it's unique to the 68 Super (and maybe 69) Alpines.

Plan B is to use a straight through glass pack. Still loud but takes some of the staccato BANG out of each firing.

Yup, extensive roster of allstars on this site. That's why I've been hanging out here for 13 years now.  Business may be a little slow during the summer months but we're all still checking in every day. Summer days are beautiful and we all love them. The excitement will stir when the daylight shortens, when the leaves turn, when the temperatures being their descent, and when the storm clouds begin to gather.

I mark Labor Day on my calendar as the time to start getting my riders ready.  The weeks fly by, I've been caught short too many times.

I too have gotten well acquainted with John over the last number of years, although it hasn't yet been face to face, (hope that happens this fall).  We have been trading info, parts, stories, pictures and B.S., mostly related to vintage Ski-Doo's.  There is a wealth of Ski-Doo history under that mans hat!!  If I can't come up with the information, John usually can!!

I am sure that all of you that have been members of this forum for a while all know what a wonderful, thoughtful and sharing person Blizzard GR is.  I just got to meet him thru another Blizzard owner and wanted to share the excitement I have had e-mailing back and forth with himover the last couple of days.  What a class act he is and  I can't thank him enough for all his help...

Yes I read that too, it just seems like they would work.  Especially  with a short throttle burst  at the right spot lol.

Warrior, from what I read a while ago, turf skis are not a good option due to the width of the expansion joints on the bridge. Turf skis can get caught in them. I believe the "rules" state that the tires must be a minimum of 2 inches wide. Might be wrong though. 

I had a nice long chat with the YETI, Jersey Joe earlier today.  We discussed doing the bridge crossing and what a great time it would be.  I'm going to look into doing this ride pretty seriously but life keeps getting in the way of the fun stuff.

Turf skis?  Might hold up.
