It has never once threatened to lose grip. The front Fredette I have has an overkill amount of screws at all kinds on fancy angles, which is grippy, but overkill.

Got my Fournier tire ready to mount. I bought a 21"/19" cheap wheel set just for the ice tires. I'm all new this season. New (50 hour) 530, new tank, and faded orange rims. Now if I only lived 1500 miles closer to you guys.

Managed to get out riding today. We got a friend out for his first time on ice, and his KTM 350 EXC is a bit of an ice weapon! It is so easy to go fast on. Just have to keep the revs up. I currently loading a few lap rip on it. Stay tuned. In the video, it is the end of the day, and we are tired. I didn't know I was being followed, but I was riding my friend's bike with a moderately fecked rear tire. It is super fun and easy to set up in a bit of a drift, so I was just doing circles around the bottom end of the pond. The owner of the bike is very fast, despite the tire. That said, he's very lucky he was wearing elbow pads. He was doing about 50 km/h tight circles, when he thought he'd try to climb up and ride the bike side-saddle (yup). It didn't work, and he fell. All I heard was the giant ripping sound as the tire just about ate the sleeve off his jacket.



The Fournier tire is amazing!!! The 350 has Fournier's 18", which is a fraction squirlier than the 19" (18" Bridgestone M102 vs 19" Pirelli MT44), but it's really difficult to measure, since the 19" MT44 NEVER looses grip. . . . .ever! Not snow, not rough ice, nothing.

Not many pics, but it was a good day. It's amazing how much fun you can have on a 40 acre pond.

This is a tire I built last year, and I built it despite receiving the wrong tire, and run at very high pressure (on bad advice), thus it was never really that good, but it's predictable drifting makes it fun all the same.

First Ice ride of the season, sweet.

I'm not sure I envy you yet though.

Winter must be 9 months out of the year up there.

Getting the itch now If the 350 worked that well, my 500 should be even better!

It snowed twice last winter, and the ice was always thin enough to send a wave as a bike went by, and it was wet all but two times we rode. I live in an area that is regularly hit by chinooks. It was raining last night, but now it is -7 C again. Boo. That's a bit cold for me.

Your 500 would be insane on the ice, but there is something about wringing the neck of a smaller bike that makes you pick up the speed. The suspension is very nice on the ice. My 530 is an '09, which is quite a bit softer than the '08, but the '13 is really nice on the rough bits.

Smugmug keeps screwing with the 350 video. I sort of want you to see how fast it is!

Here it is. Youtube ruins the video.

Drove by the Pond today and its open water so unless there is a hugh change in temperature between now and January 1st, it will be postponed to a later date when the ice is thick enough. Just for clarification, "Ice Box" is an invitational event put on by MVTR for it's members and guests. It is not open to the public.



Nice Helmet.



















One year it was a bit warm.
