Don't give up on it. Look into Kenosee Provincial Park down there, I know there's some great snowmobile trails in the area.

That looks like a pretty perfect ride to me, those trails look awesome. I'd love to get in on one of those one of these days.

I'm not sure I'd call that a "dual sport" ride though.

Buying Amsoil at Canadian Tire or the like is a huge ripoff.

My only advice is this - BUY ALUMINUM.

The extra $$$$ is well worth it. No rust, no paint to chip/peel, and WAY lighter for both towing and moving it around when unhooked.
