    Thinking ahead for next winter, which studs did you use, do you have the install gun for the non threaded type and how did they hold up?
    I was thinking of studding a set of trials tires and mounting em on the gasgas. Theres no problem with using a tube is there?
    thanks

    Next year? This year isn't over.
    We have 18" of the best ice we've had all year. You can ride everywhere on the lake!

    Long but over down here. I got a set of used Fourniers from kijiji for mine this year. I also got a change to try a couple of bikes with George jones tires on them. There is also a guy in Sarnia area that builds them. Or you can try it yourself. Personally. I'm buying a new set of Fourniers for next year and maybe try rebuilding the set for the mini mini bike. I got royal distributing studs for that one and just sat down with my impact gun and gaver hell one night. It worked fine for anyone just learning ride or anyone not into leaning them over. But I proved you can crash a mini mini bike too

    The difference between the studs was night and day, and I don't have the skillz to push the limits. I also put the mini bike down. I had to earn a membership into some group... :D

    Well the season is fast approaching again. I'm going to Barrie in the morning to pick up a set of tires for the little dr. Good chance there is also going to be a news teed in the stable within the next week or two in need of a new pair of boots.

    I've been keeping my eyes on kijiji for an inexpensive bike for this winter. No luck yet, but that is giving me a bit more time to increase my budget.

    I also recently met someone with lots of motocross experience who has never ridden on ice, but is interested in trying it out.

    Is it wrong to want the ice to come in early? :wink:

    So I had the pleasure of a trip into whit by last weekend and a visit to George Jones. Learned quite a bit of history and stories from him. Left my wheels there to get the new ice tires on for this winter. The new ride should be ready to go real soon. Who's gonna join us the year?

    I thought I had a ice bike :( Drove to Peterborough to look at a 1976 Suzuki RM 125. Wasted 100 bucks in gas and 6 hours. Too bad people don't tell the truth before you drive so much.

    The search continues....
