    That brings back some good memories. It makes me actually wish the temperatures were consistently below freezing!

    Agree 100%! Drove by the res on route 2 in Plainfield and it was frozen but probably not enough just yet. Did a bunch of single track riding in Cabot though, felt good to be out on the bike again.

    Been lurking on the ice fishing sites looking for ice info and it looks like the ice is starting to build. Some spots are 5"+, so after the cold nights coming up, we should be riding in a week or so. Get your tires ready boys:lol3 I can't wait!!!!!!

    Sandbar has ice, it's covered. I'll test the depth after the next few cold days. Not much snow out there, thanks to the wind. Who wants to ride on the ice?

    4 snowmobiles lost through the ice at Rangeley Lake Maine and one in Rindge, NH already. Patience is key at this time of year.

    A couple of us are going to Lake desolation NY tomorrow with the bikes to mess around and set up a track layout. Probably be there just before noon. Anyone is welcome to join if they want. Ride at your own risk as I personally don't know the actual ice condition but I have a really good friend that have been riding on it for a couple of weeks now.

    Yeah i'll have to bring something....with the snow we had the ice is probably shity....more than likely we'll plow a track and flood it. We have a 12hp? water pump and cut a hole in the ice. Usually works pretty good.

    Crankshaft.- Whats IB stand for?

    There was a kid riding on a pond just around the corner from here earlier.

    I guess there was 5-6 inches of ice, I was surprised.
