    Love the full windshield and the heat generated by the Wolverine when it’s cool.
    I want sun, and I want the trails to dry up especially where its deep. Yeah I can put a jacket on but its been too wet. When its close to most puddles dried up its filled again by tons of rain. Other areas north of me don't dry out at all as they're shaded and rely on longer hotter temperature to dry. We haven't been getting that this year. Middle of June now (it just hit me!!!) and its as cold as the bigging of spring. The JET STREAM I see on the local weather is all gone for a XXXX. It funneling all the cold and rain clouds over the southern ontario as well as the great lakes. Sunday I should see sun and much warmer but not seasonal. It takes 3-4 days for even the smaller puddles to dry up.

    Yes I agree. It’s definitely too wet but I like the cooler weather.

    not to start an argument, but I'd take wet weather over dry for riding any day. 1st, I like mud, as much as it probably causes many of my problems but also, unless you are leading, eating dust all day sucks!! and makes me have to do more air filter maintenance then I like... *insert No-toil advertisement*

    I always lead so dust isn’t a problem for me. I always joke with the guys about how dirty their faces get. Sometimes that doesn’t go over so well LOL. I do agree that a little rain is Okay but it doesn’t seem to stop this year, here in Ontario anyway.
    There are some areas that were flooded so bad the trails had been delayed from opening. The worst I’ve ever seen.

    I'm exactly the opposite. I cant stand the mud and avoid it like its a hole full of broken glass. The dust does suck but I can wash that off 1000 times easier than mud.

    I’m still cleaning mud out from under everything on my machine after the last ride, which turned into an impromptu mudding trip. It added probably 1 hour to my 20 hour service last night as I had to pull clumps of mud out from places I couldn’t get to without having the wheels off, inner wheel well, and front skid plate. I will be debating quite a bit next time about diving into the quagmire again. These are not fun machines to clean up. I bet I got an additional 20lbs out after the last three washes!
