Awesome idea. Proud to have such sharpminded folks as part of this community. One dumb question. Do the shocks help to provide a progressive feel when weight is being transferred from the bike to the outrigger skis? My only concern is that I might transfer weight from bike to ski too quickly and low side as tho I had forgotten to put my kickstand up.

Just a couple tips:
pots d'echappement = muffler
temps ( sur un horloge) = time
temps (la meteo) = weather

Paf, a couple questions:
Where did you find those composite tire chains? Did you make them?

What happens if you touch down with the ski where the snow has melted away?
Why not use shocks off an old jap bike? Metric and gotta be cheaper!

J'essaye en francais (ne rire pas!):
Ou as-tu trouvé les chaines de matériaux composite? As tu les construie tu-mème?
Qu'èst-ce qui ce passe si le ski touche le macadam ou le niege a fondreé?
Pourquois n'utilise pas les amortisseurs d'un vieux moto Japonese? Ils sont metrique et moins cher sans doute.

What happens if you touch down with the ski where the snow has melted away?

I fixed 2 skates in stainless steel to every ski.
The ski is tilted, it touches in the first one behind

Why not use shocks off an old jap bike? Metric and gotta be cheaper!

I took the shock absorbers and correct technically and cheap.
And they are beautiful

How behaves the motorcycle?

The motorcycle behaves as a motorcycle without ski.
The ski avoids falling.
The ski allows to take support in bend.
You should postpone(put back) the weight only on the ski. Otherwise the front wheel slides.
It is necessary to measure gases to make slide a little the back wheel.



If my English is bad, you can correct me.
Thank you

The idea is good but I think that a bike with this type of material is much more easier to drive in the snow than the heavy GS1150 with skis...

Have a look on the Youtube subject

Its good for the grip.

But nails are forbidden on road in France.
The purpose of my system is to drive on tarred road and then on road with some snow.
I transform my motorcycle in 12 minutes:
Assembly of skis.
Deflate tires.
Take up the chaine on the back wheel.

Moi aussi je peux aider à la traduction.
Ça me fera plaisir.
Sans vouloir vous offenser, il y a eu quelques phrases traduites qui étaient franchement hilarantes.
La meilleure que j'ai vue était celle-ci:

" I quickly notice that my idea was the maid " Celle que tu mentionnes que ton idée était la bonne mais c'est traduit comme si tu parlais de la " bonne " comme pour une " servante "

Pour ce qui en est de l'idée et de l'application, eh bien c'est Génial

Au Québec, tout véhicules doit être muni de pneus d'hiver. On nous a coupé le sifflet en tant que transport en moto.

paf la bm,
I am interested in the Easy Grip composite tire chains and looked at the Freebiker.net posting but didn't see a size. What tire size did you select when you bought them?
