I bet ICE riding has a whole different meaning along the border?

I'm close to you in Mineral Ridge. I don't get to ride as often as I would like and most of my riding is in the dirt. There a couple of off road racing clubs in the area but ADV is about as good of a adventure riding club as you'll find. Welcome.

Sorry but you missed a good one! Tell Zach that today's ice was nicer than anything we had two years ago. Great track was plowed off and the weather couldn't be better. It was smooooooooth! Awesome.

A few pics: Bikes prepped for ice and ready to go.




Only Bob Ramsay showed up to take my offer to ride. He said it had been 20 years since he rode on ice but he quickly looked good.

Here's Bob after only one or two laps





Kirk and Mike gettin' after it







There were a few other fast guys there too







A neat old Yamaha TT500 showed up



It was really cool old bike





Kirk's new Husqvarna 449 was fast and sounds awesome



The best lookin' bikes out there today ...



I took a few pics while riding ... one-handed on the ice leaned in the corners was tricky!





I like this one





One more of Kirk backin' it in to the corner. What a great ride!



Later,
M

Good shots Mike. Let me know when you start to get the feeling back in your toes.

It was warm! So much so that the top of the ice was getting soft and some water was leaking through cracks in the ice.

That was so much fun it probably outta be illegal ... but the local Sheriff and the Millersport Police both stopped by to watch us for a while. No drama as everyone was being cool, we were all riding the same direction and being safe getting on and off the track. So they left.

Later,
M

Cool pics. Any idea how thick the ice is? If it stays cold in Feb I'm seriously considering clearing the snow off our pond and getting it.

Today there at Liebs Island it was 4.5 inches thick. Safe for the bikes and smaller quads.

I figured 4-5 inches was where it needed to be. I haven't driven on ice in over 10 years, and that was a Jeep on Lake Erie, seems like it was near 10" at the fishin' hole I drove out to.

Our pond is shallow (like 4 feet most of the way across) so it freezes pretty well.
