    Does BRP still offer the 25K patch?


    Yea, I do hope the nice weather does hold out, until next year( ). If it doesn't I go right into the snowmobile season,( White Gold snow ) then back to the Spyder season.

    BRP had mileage pins--no patches. Cat Specialties (a vendor) used to have patches for 10K, 25K, and 50K. Have not been there in a while--but give them a check. EDIT: Cat still has mileage patches. $11.00 each

    That is too bad that BRP does not offer any mileage patches. But I'll check Cat Specialties (vendor) to see if they have any. Deanna

    Dumb question but I don't know, why do you put it away for the winter? Is this something that all spyder owners do. I live in Eastern Oregon and it gets downright cold here but I plan to ride in the winter as long as its not icy, snowing, or raining like hell. Do spyders not like the cold or is this a personal matter? By the way grats' on your milestone. Keep on cruising.

    Jim, I leave in the North East( Vermont) I do not ride when we get snow, ice, or salt on the roads, or any other winter conditions, they put salt brine on the roads, and it not safe on the roads, the salt brine ruins the spyder, and it gets too cold. So I do put the spyder into hibernation until spring. Also, it is a personal matter. Deanna

    I see, here in Eastern Oregon they just put down gravel and it beats the hell out of everything. I wont ride either with the gravel out. Although last winter was so bad on hwy 84 their is now talk of salting the roads. I was just more curious than anything.

    Hi Jim,

    Re: talk of salting the roads

    I'm an Oregonian also. As soon as I heard of this on the news, I contacted ODOT and told them I vote H*** No.

    I don't know how you feel, but if you are against it, please contact ODOT with your thoughts.

    Congratulations on the miles!! That means a lot of great rydes! Now, that part about the hibernation... I have to do the same thing here in Northern Indiana... I sadly put Hi-Yo Silver in storage and say, "Good bye, old friend. See you in the spring!" Maybe global warming will make us like the south so we can ryde all year long!

    There is a story that goes with the BRP mileage pins.

    To get one, you had to register on their web site, you had to send them a picture of your odometer, the social security # and blood type of your 2nd cousin, etc.

    It then took an inordinate amount of time to get the pin. I believe they were 10K, 25K, 50K, and 100K. The way the pin system worked, it was how many miles you had on a "particular" spyder, not total spyder miles. That in itself can make for another discussion thread--but is now a moot point because the pins are no more.

    I have one of the 100 K pins and an spare in case I lose it. They sent both to me without asking (at the end of the pin program)--guess I got lucky.

    I believe I sent a 10K one to Bob for his wife (a long time ago).
