    Glad to see you are out there again this year. Keep the pictures and vids coming. We haven't had any snow at all here and the temps are around 40-50F every week. I'll be riding to work this week.

    You see all kinds of pictures of these different super bikes all studded up, a few videos here and there, but they all seem to have one thing in common, these bikes in this configuration only seem to go straight. Are these bikes not designed to be ridden hard into corners and harder out of corners? Why is it that our ice bikes can get so low into corners that the handle bars scrape the ground and yet all these super bikes do is zoom around on a wide open flat lake? This pattern and style of stud is not designed for cornering applications. Please someone show me a super bike tire configuration that will compare to what we have available to us in a 21x18 wheel combo. I'd be all over it for my buell.

    I think they draw their inspiration from the speedway style ice racing more common in europe.



    I think our style of tires or more specific to North America, and yes I do think the corner better than the spikes, although I think they are significantly heavier.
