I will be a no show due to flu. Enjoy the grub and tall tails of riding finesse. Would love to join you but would not wish this flu on my worst enemy.

I would think the ice would be OK. I was up to Riverton first week of Jan. on my sled. 2' of ice already at that time.
Just stay south of Black Island as the currant is pretty strong between it and Hecla.
When we cross to the east side we leave from Hecla village and stay south of B.I. till we get to it.
Should be good snow up there by now but lots of wind so could be rough.

By the way, I haven't had internet for 2 weeks so I'm way out of touch with everyone. Good to be back!

Jerome is a neat old hippy town. Some very nice scenery and great roads around Jerome.
Also if you get down to Tucson area the palms to pines highway is memorable.

Is this an organized race or just a bunch of guys getting together?

St.Malo ice racing

Is there races until the ice melts? My buds and I are thinking of riding sleds down there to watch. Two of them are thinking of studding DTs for next year. Is there a web site,location map,admission cost?


I'll GOOGLE it,I forgot it's 2013.

We'll be out there till the ice goes .....what a blast today, perfect weather and about 40 bikes rippin it up in the sun...what a way to celebrate my 59th BD with my son and all the great people that make it happen

DT's are great ice bikes... there were a few out there today

You can check out all the latest poop on facebook...just type in Manitoba Ice-Racing and ask to join the group

See you next weekend!

Sorry Mark, I think snowmobiles are better suited for winter riding than motorcycles!
