Thanks brah! It's quite the hobby! I am in a pretty high level of competition with the dirt oval track racing scene. People go nuts, just like with a track bike. Costs can actually be pretty similar as track riding I do a good amount of state and regional level races, some events have some pretty good pay when you finish well

I try to stay more under the radar on a lower budget. It gives you a great and unforgettable feeling beating people spending 5x as much cash as you every weekend! Anyhow, way of topic.

I feel sorry for all my snowmobile buddies here at the moment. Those suckers bought new sleds two and three years ago, and they haven't even seen snow since. Warm and dry winters have been sick up here, pushes the R6 season between 7-9 months easy.

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

You have no idea. West Michigan has been rocking some weak winters. Maybe four, five years ago we had snow covering entire city blocks. These days my buddy just got a sled last year and I said, "Great, you know... for next year right?"

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

Ryan Suchanek made his own ice tires and stunted with his Kawi.

He also set the record for fastest wheelie on ice @ 95mph in 2011. I don't know if that still stands

This was a post of his from back in January 2011:
.this pond is right in my back yard so i plow it every day and keep the ice perfect for riding motorcycles on....but i've been building tires for the past 7 years now, really have a setup that works great now!!! i'm still struggling with a front setup that works, i tried building this new tire exactly like a dirtbike tire and it actually worked worse than my previous method, i know a death tire (snowmobile spikes) would stoppie great, but i don't want to design a tire that WILL kill somebody, your still gonna get hurt if you mouse trap on one of my tires, but your not going to bleed out as fast

Re: Custom Studded Tires For Winter

We have posted this on our facebook as we are trying to organize a ride up to old forge. We've got two 700+cc ATV's with 5&6 foot plows already lined for duty.

Who's comin with me??? Will be ordering the snowmobile studs soon. Group buy? LOL

Seriously though, this needs to happen and I'm willing to make it happen. Who's down? It's been zero up there more than a handful of times. The lakes will be frozen more than enough REAL soon too...

AND I got a set of Q2's with like 150 miles on em I'd love to ruin on principle.

How much is gas on the east coast? Sounds like a trip, man.
