You're going to be hard pressed to find anything open just yet. Plus, anyplace that is open is going to be either frozen ground or VERY muddy.
It's kind of getting late in the season to be doing ice tires but, I'm sure there wll be at least a couple more weeks that you could ice ride. Believe me, you're missing the boat if you don't get out on the ice during the winter season. Keeps you sharp for all kinds of riding! keep that in mind come Fall. Pro made tires with AMA legal screws are expensive but they last for years if you take care of them. Other options include making your own but make sure you get tips on how to do it right. Ice tires nt made correctly can be as bad as not having ice tires at all.
If you DO find a place to ride that isn't a muck fest...post it...I'm sure there are others out there jonesing for a good dirt ride...I prefer trails to MX myself.

"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!

Have you looked at the radar lately?

Nothing worse than Casey clay. Slick as snot and sticks to the bike like glue.

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop
