Need New Skis For Your Sled?

Posted: November 3, 2014 in Snowmobile
Tags: , ,

Winter is coming and now would be a good time to take a walk out to your garage and take a look at the skis on your sled.  Get the sled on it’s side and really check out the bottom of the ski sole.  We see a lot of worn out plastic skis from riding on the edge of the road with one ski on the pavement or from letting your carbides wear down too far and then your ski sole gets chewed up in a hurry!  At Petrie Motorsports we keep a good selection of carbides in stock and we can get you the new Slydog line of skis (below) for all the major brands of sleds.  Check out this LINK for a listing of part numbers and accessories to build your cool custom skis.

Riders, this is important. We need you to comment on the proposed Sauk Prairie Recreation Area regarding including OHV (Dirt bikes, ATV, 4X4) vehicles into their Master Plan. We have opposition, so please keep your comments positive regarding no riding opportunities at the time in the Southern half of the state, the existing directive to the DNR to provide a riding park in the Southern half of the state (and it’s time to deliver their promise), how the clubs and enthusiasts have been trained to build and maintain sustainable trails, it’s a great family activity, etc.

Deadline is August 30!

Let’s not miss out on this opportunity. Clubs, dealers: please forward to your members/customers.

Subject: Action Required – Submit comments regarding proposed options for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area (former Badger Ammo plant).
Date: Thu, 8 Aug 2013 01:26:19 -0500
From: Bryan Much
To: ‘Distribution

We need to get the word out to OHM/DS clubs and riders so that they comment regarding the proposed options for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.

We have until August 30th to get our comments in to the DNR regarding proposals for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.

Last time we did a great job making our interests for motorized recreation known – especially the need for single track motorcycle trails.

Last time there were about 400 comments overall and we made up a good percentage of those. At the time of the public meeting on 31 July, 315 had already offered comments about the proposals. You can bet that this time around there will be many more comments that are not in favor of motorized recreation at the site. There are some organized efforts to promote options that do not allow for motorized recreation.


Get the word out to other riders and clubs and make sure that people act right away.

These surveys are often confusing so I have sorted through the issues to help people understand things a little better. Some of the background was in my previous e-mail.

This time comments are being taken via an on-line survey. The survey itself can be confusing to some as they spend a lot of time talking about vision statements and only a little time concentrating on the three options.

To help sort through this, I am offering some sample comments as they relate to each section of the survey. Please don’t use the same words, but try to cover the same points in your own words.

The notes are organized to align with the questionnaire.

Comments to consider for the on-line questionaire.

Page 1 of 4 asks for your zip code. It is a good idea to comment later in the survey that despite the distance from your home, you would be willing to travel to Sauk Prairie to enjoy motorized recreation (and to use the firing range).

Page 2 (Vision)
It would be useful to comment that this large tract of land is proximate to a large number of Wisconsin residents whose recreational interests are underserved in the region. The vision statement should include a statement that recognizes this as an opportunity to bring underserved recreational interests into more reasonable balance while providing opportunities that are within reasonable reach of where people live.

Page 3 (Ecological Management)
Ecological management is important but in this case it should not eliminate opportunities for outdoor recreation. It must be clear that recreation and ecological management do not exclude each other.

Page 3 (Recreation)
It must be clearly stated that recreation takes priority here. There are recreational interests that have not been adequately addressed in the region. Converting this large former industrial site to public land provides an important opportunity to address some of those shortfalls. There is already a large existing tract of parkland in place in this area. The priority here needs to be to address other recreational interests that include motorized recreation and a firearms range.

Page 3 (Cultural Resource Preservation)
Significant sites should be identified and preserved, but not to the extent that it unreasonably restricts recreational use of the land. The priority should be to maximize recreational use of the site while preserving significant cultural features.

Page 3 (Education and Interpretation)
As in cultural resource preservation, education and interpretive opportunities should be addressed without unreasonably restricting recreational use of the land.

Page 4 (Draft Conceptual Alternatives)
No Action Alternative
I do not like this alternative. It wastes a public resource that could otherwise be developed to provide recreation opportunities for a large number of residents that are proximate to this site. The property needs to be developed to maximize recreational opportunities.

Ecological Restoration Emphasis
The site had limited vehicle access and perceived remoteness when it was an industrial site. This is largely because the public was denied use of the land. Now that we can change that, we need to make use of this property by addressing shortfalls in recreation opportunities for a large number of people that live within range of the property. We already have adjoining land that offers traits of what is proposed under this option. Tying up this property under this option would severely limit the number of residents that would benefit from the resource. We need to maximize the recreational opportunities at the site, not unreasonably limit how it can be used.

Outdoor Recreation Emphasis
This proposal offers the best balance of uses for the property and maximizes the benefit of the property for the most users. The site has the potential to serve a large number of Wisconsin residents because of its proximity to population areas. It also has sufficient space to be able to accommodate some regionally underserved recreational interests like motorized recreation and target shooting. The size and layout of the property would allow a variety of recreational interests to be enjoyed without interference. This option also allows for many of the important features of the other options to be part of the program. The other two options are too restrictive. This option best addresses everyone’s interests. I am willing to travel a long distance to be able to participate in motorized recreation and target shooting at this site – especially since these interests are largely underserved in this part of the state.

Thank you for making our interests known. If we prevail we will have a nice riding opportunity that will serve a lot of people – especially since there are so few other options.

Icon Variant Big Game helmet available April 2013

Icon Variant Big Game helmet available April 2013

Icon is releasing a couple new versions of their Variant dual sport helmet – the “Big Game” and “Battlescar” in a charcoal color.  This is one of the best choices available when it comes to comfort, style and excellent optics.

The shield is very optically correct, distortion free and has a wide peripheral view.  The interior is removable so when the stink gets too bad you can just take it out, give it a wash and you’re good as new!

Various styles and colors are available from the wild zebra print shown here to your basic gloss black, so there is a style to fit every taste out there.

Check out the range of Icon Variant helmets at Dual Sport Warehouse.  Most versions of the helmet are available right now but the new releases won’t hit the shelves until early April.  You can “pre-order” now and we will ship your helmet as soon as we get them in.  So don’t wait – you’ll just end up waiting longer to get the helmet you want.

  • Fiberglass/Dynema /Carbon Fiber Shell
  • Long oval headform
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined
  • Anti-lift visor to reduce glare
  • Multiple oversized intake and exhaust ports
  • Molded EPS nose reduces shield fogging
  • Quick-change fog-free shield
  • Removable Hydradry moisture wicking liner
  • Rear spoiler for reduced helmet buffeting
  • Removable chin curtain
  • Shown with included Dark Smoke shield

While you’re at Dual Sport Warehouse check out the Icon Patrol Raiden riding gear as well.  The Raiden suit is a high quality adventure riding jacket and pants that is waterproof and equipped with CE rated armor to keep you safe.  Icon incorporates some “flash” into the suit in their normal style.  Again, if you prefer a little less flair in your gear you can go with the standard Patrol gear in black or gray.
