Ice speedway has been popular in Northern Europe for years. You wouldn't want to be run over by one of those tyres though.

Here's my winter weapon, 1967ish 350 Benelli/Monkey Ward, waiting for our next race.

And tire changes would suck!

A buddy used to have one, I rode it a couple times, scary! skinny track and ski, and no gyroscopic effect from wheels makes it quite an adventure.
