Paradise Ridge Ride, (video)

Hey folks,

Been a long time since I've been here. Hope you're all well. :D

I know some of you have been there (in fact, I was with a few of you once when we got turned back by snow).
Anyway,...

Only a few inches in the parts where the water is flowing and wearing a hole through the ice. Up to 5 feet or so in the pools where the ice is thickest.

Another way to have fun with your XR250

It took a bit of work to get the ice tires fitted so they wouldn't destroy the swingarm and muffler, but is it ever worth it!
