The announcers are going mental, so you might want to lower the volume a bit. The last comment it great though.

I haven't ridden it since December 23, but right now, I think you'd need some tires with the spikes in them (AKA friction studs).

If you all are bored, head up to the Jday this weekend to spectate. You can pretty much spectate from any part on the track, though the expert's hill is the most exciting spot...



Motogo1 actually raced it last weekend and took 3rd in his class.

Sunday the 24th in Greenfield, MA... the flyer can be found at this link... http://jdayoffroad.com/next-race/

Starts early, 8AM, but there are two motos and the pros ride last. We got there around 10 AM and didn't leave until around 3PM. We caught the end of the C class moto 1 and all the remaining races. Well worth the $10 per person admission IMO. And better than sitting at home wishing you could ride. :)

Of course, after the race I wanted to ride more than ever. :(

You are my new best friend. Unless you have an A on your report card and a pair of big ones, you won't be riding like these guys. I agree. Fun spectating. It was better in person.

Someday I will be able to kick ass like you did on your husky...




And thanks for the studded tire offer but I will destroy them.
