There is a liner in the front but the rear looks like its double lined? These are screws that seem to have maybe gone thru the liner? Ill try to get a pic tonight. Might need a road trip to one of you experts before I mount them up.

Rode ice for the first time last winter and was instantly hooked. What a blast. I'm getting a set of used George Jones tires for my WR290F. Got an set of almost new wheels cheap on Thumper Talk. Almost too nice to mount ice tires on. I will be riding mostly on Rice Lake but may get up the ride with the ADV guys once or twice if I get an invite. Still over a month of trail riding before I switch the bike over.

How's the ice? Must be getting close to ice riding.
My buddy went done to our ice riding spot on Rice Lake today to drill some holes to check the ice. I got my tires from George Jones yesterday and the bike should be ready for the ice tomorrow. Getting pumped.

I've got one more fork leg to fill, then put tires back on for a New Year's Day ride the. I need to put the ice tires on and try out my wraps. Then I sit patiently waiting for a call or text.

Hurry up -20 overnights.

Cool! I'm getting ready to head out today for the first time since early December. Track is plowed, new tire built, and we are going to freeze our butts off, but it's oh so worth it!

Our ice is almost gone after the rain in the past few days.

Outstanding photos, Kelsow.

Those guys look to be genuinely fast.

Road trip..........I still haven't put the studs on the bike yet for fear of jinxing it. But looks like somebody must have near me.
