Anyway Bostjan came in to town and decided he needed a couple of things for his trip to Prudhoe. I inquired about the studs he was using in his TKC's and what kind of luck he was having with them. Well I've been doggedly trying to run this sidecar rig all winter and the thing that I was shaky on was the control you have to have during a turn. As long as the road was plowed I was able to hit the bare pavement with the front tire and no problem. I ran up to Hatcher Pass via Wasilla Fishook @45 Mph. but if I wanted to turn into a driveway forget about it. So while we were in TMS I ended up buying a complete front wheel assembly along with a new TKC I already ordered the Grip Studs And I was ready to get started This is all you need I ended putting in 107 studs into the tire I ended up putting the pattern as three across, two across The road that I live on is a typical dirt road center crowned with 6 inches of ice on it I took the bike out on the road and got the speed up to about 30 and srarted turning the handle bars left and right. The rear of the bike along with the side car was sliding left and right, but the front wheel never lost it's grip and acted like it was attached to a rail Bostjan came back from Deadhorse He took a little time and got his gear squared away and dried out. We both went in to TMS and to Alaska Leather got a kick out of Barb telling us "it was to early because it was still winter"
