- Please be as judgemental as you can, it’s friday
My cousins are Canadian, that would be considered packing for a quiet weekend.
Their entire facebook feed consists of:
Kids photos (as usual)
6 months of permenant blue skys, MX bikes and boats.
6 months of snowmobiles being launched up massive drifts.
Jealous, me, not at all, honest. I mean who would want to live in a country that makes Scotland look overcrowded with overly restrictive* access laws?
*or rather most of Canada is far enough from anyone or the landowner for anyone to care that youre riding a MX bike without plates or a snowmobile.Posted 2 months agohols2Member

I can’t stand Canadians, they’re always so insecure about America, they always pretend they don’t care and they don’t want to be American, but they talk about it so much it’s pretty obvious that they have some really deep issues about it. And they let French people live in their country and don’t make them speak English. Sets a very bad example.Posted 2 months ago
Yes Toby1! i’m amazed it took that long!
Lot’s of other stuff from my grumpy friend but that was #judgement1
I’m good at grumpy!
Wing-mirrors will be obscured by the wide load and even though it’s a bloody great big Dodge Ram the rear suspension looks close to overloaded, so front ends traction will be reduced. As for what happens if you hit the brakes hard, I’m pretty sure those straps won’t hold if you need to stop quickly 🙂Posted 2 months ago
@toby1 you have a talent.
Main moan was about diesel, engines, destroying the very mountains they love, noise, avalanche risk and so on. Then came the safety concerns as toby highlights.
A great deal of grump was exuded about that is a family of snow scooter riders (note the sizes) so the owner of the massive truck is passing on his flippancy over pavement parking /road safety/ the environment to the younger generation. Plus the scooters are ‘bogan colours’
Still, I was the driver was my dad. Presuming it is a male owner of course!Posted 2 months agomolgripsSubscriber
I didn’t realise the Ram even came in a diesel, assumed they were all based on Petrol 5l+ engines!
5 litres? Hah. try 7.
They do diesels, monstrous V10 jobs that clatter and roar. This is one reason why Americans think diesels are noisy and rough – those things are what most of them think of.Posted 2 months agoTheDTsMember
Sled heads, funny breed (you did ask for us to be judgmental) truck needs air bag suspension. Approve though as it looks like it’s dads sled next to two kids sleds. I’m sure some forum members will be along to complain that someone may be enjoying themselves while burning hydrocarbons, though.Posted 2 months agoLATSubscriber
the most wrong thing with that picture is that the truck is a Ram. For some reason a ram needs an obnoxious exhaust and driven at a minimum of 150% of the speed limit. The only time a ram isn’t breaking the speed limit is if they are tailgating a vehicle, generally not a Ram, that is not breaking the speed limit.

there a shared use path by the road from town to the residential subdivisions where I live. The sign that lets you know it is shared use shows a snowmobile and a pedestrian. as long as you are at least 14 and wearing a helmet, side by sides, quads, Mx bikes, etc are all allowed to use it. The great thing is, locals are outraged by the changes in the laws that stopped them riding wherever they wanted.
even in the depths of winter when it is light for 6 hours max, there is more sunlight in the Yukon than in London.Posted 2 months agocromolyollyMember
think the corresponding term in Canada is douche
It’s hoser innit?
Wearing a Canuck tuxedo.
Should have a plough on the front.
Snowmobiles or skidoos if you prefer, are a lot of fun in private land. The trails are a bit dull as they are groomed and have low speed limits etc. Very civilised though.Posted 2 months ago
