What?! No class for Fiddy's??

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Wouldn't it be the 4 stroke super mini? Granted your gonna need a big bore kit to hang with those that have them, on the strights maybe.

Yes, there are some special Ice Cutters that some of the motorcycle shops carry. It takes around an hour or two per tire and you're set to go. Just make sure you get the correct length of screw for your tire.

Electric drill and a specific sized adapter to hold the screw and you're set. Riding on the ice is a blast!

I know alot of you are not interested in this kind of racing but I thought I'd post the pictures up for the people who are.

I was pretty drunk Saturday night so the pictures are not the best, but they're better then nothing.

It was a fun trip and I'd like to set the XR up next winter with some ice tires.

It was crazy, you pull into this bar and before you know it you're driving down this boat dock ramp. Let me tell you, there was at least 100 cars parked out on this lake. So us Illinois boys are like holy shit we're going to park on the fukin lake. We're in a full size Chevy conversion Van with 6 full grown adults. I'm thinking man, if anything is going to set off a chain reaction it's going to be us.

It was pretty cold out that night (like 8 degrees). But I kept warm by continuously slamming beers. If you didn't drink your beer fast enough the damn thing would freeze.

They had some pretty cool bikes set up and some old vintage ones to. All in all it was a good time, at least I can say I went and saw it once.

The racing is almost exactly like Flat Tracking. They also have a supermoto track for ice racing set up but they weren't racing those until Sunday.

Check out the picture.

Oh yea,

Hey Kim, I ran into to Deen from LCR. I think he was racing, I'm not sure though. I saw him for a minute talked to him but then lost him. I was rip roarin drunk! I hope I didn't say anything stupid.
