Hi and welcome to ADVrider.

I moved your posts here (from Ask Baldy, Blame MaddBrit) so other GS riders might get a look at it.

Paf that is a really clever structure that you have made, excellent very elegant execution and also looks like a ton of fun..

Let me ask you something, did you ever explore the possibility of using a "Omnidirectional shape" something like the bottom of a bowl, so the Outrigger can slide on any direction, or do you just think the straight blades of the ski's serve a better purpose

Please explain if you can.

Ps: this is my first year in the snow and I'm dyeing to ride my bike

You asked many questions.
Let I the time(weather) answer you because I have difficulty with English.
While waiting for look at this link on my forum french
http://www.freebiker.net/FichesPratiques/moto_skis/

You can tried to translate with this site that I use
http://www.reverso.net/text_translat...=FR&action=new

The second escape is false, it is to tidy up skis

A video embarked by the last winter when I managed to run(drive) to 70 kilometers per hour on the snow
