Don't put the bikes away for the winter!

Now there's another alternative..... as well as a new tire to debate!

nice idea, but the salt on the roads and my lack of wanting to clean her off all the time would deter me from doing it.

NESBA #456 Intermediate
Always 1 step ahead of Lupi. 1:24:7 BHF
And 1 step behind Kimmy

That's not for on road use. I don;t think the DOT like metal studs chewing up the roads.

That guy probably drag race on the frozen lakes. Very popular in frozen state (MI, WI, MN). I'm curious how he does. Off the line a Snowmobile will kick his ass, but the busa could really pull up top.
Sounds like fun. I used to ride my bicycle on frozen lakes al lthe time as a kid. Fun trying to go as fast as you can and stay upight. I guess some things never change.

Not dragracing.............roadracing. If you guys follow the link I posted, this is a place in Finland that offers motorcycle ice-racing on frozen lakes. Go there and just check out the pictures if nothing else. It's a scream.
