Ice Riding Thread

No ice in my neck of the woods - far north chicagoland however I've heard that Silver Lake nr Elkorn, Wi may be ready. The Central Wisc. Ice Racing Assoc. has a first race @ Fremont Jan. 5-6th I believe.

Please post up if you have any more info. Until then, I may shoot up to Racine indoor mx or simply run around my place on enduro tires...

Sportbike: Triumph Bonneville...the original sportbike!

How you found us: I tripped over ya on my way to the can!
           
I spoke with Tim at Wild Fire HD briefly yesterday (he's very active in the Cedar Lake Indiana club) and he tells me that Cedar Lake has about 2 inches and they're hoping that if gets just a little colder they can run a week or two late. He also told me that Lake Koshkinong in Wisconsin is ready. I also know that Fox lake (Wis.) is ready and that unless the weather changes drastically the Steel Shoe Fund 3 hour race is a go.
Tim & I came to the conclusion that if you're in Chicagoland and want to ride or race on the ice you're going to HAVE to travel...just like last year.
Do you believe that for the greater Chicago area that this December has been warmer on average than last?
Hang in there...All the snow cover around us and the possibility of a cold snap moving down from Canada could have us riding on the Lincoln Park or Humboldt Park lagoons! (that'd be the day!)...Like they say...Don't like the weather in Chicago?...Stick around...it will change...sometimes we get all 4 seasons in one day!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

Just finished putting on ice rims and guards, blanking off one of the Honda radiators. Probably headed up to Silver Lake then the bar & grill @ Fort Atkinson. Can't freaking wait!! Need to remember that starter fluid. The crf can be an absolute bitch to start on the ice.
