Snow!!

Just yesterday I was out on a BMW s1000RR and this morning I wake up to take my sled for a rip around my yard. Welcome to northern WI

I use to, sold the sled few years ago when I couldnt find a snow bank high enough to load into my truck. The winters are crap up here now. If I got another winter toy, it would be a track kit for a MX bike. Was up at honda the other day and they were installing one on a 450R that they are going to demo this winter, I cant wait lol

Two stroke? What does that get? 2.5 miles to the gallon? I borrow my fathers old sled a few times a year, but ******************** I can burn $60 worth of gas in a few measly hours. For a cheap bastard like myself, that hurts!

Have you guys ever used ice screws on your off road bikes? I'm going to give it a try this winter on my XR400R. I've got an area of national forest nearby with great trails, that doesn't get too much snow... should be fun.

Yes this is a 2 stroke. The way they all should be . But this is my race sled and what hurts more is it needs a minium of 110 octane.

Ouch, on the 110 octane. I agree snowmobile is just not the same without that two stroke sound and smell.

Yes sir, had a set for my 450. It's a bit odd to get use too because you know its slick but they grip quite well. Just watch your knuckles when changing the tires, they become super stiff and if you slip... Make sure you put in a liner the tire to protect the tube from any screw tips that may come all the way through

I ride on the ice every year with my MX bikes. I don't make my own tires as I have never use a set of home made ice tires that were all that great. I use fredette ice tires. they are pricey but they last for ever as long as they stay on ice only.
Here's a few pics and vid
