The Slide fenders look slick, especially the rear setup.
What C2 has is similar to what I'm thinking, though without the formed plate on the swingarm, probably just a rod that runs up 6" and gets clamped on each side.



happy to report the ice tires are mounted.
I know this because the shop called and told me so

Mine (rear especially) are probably overbuilt. You can pick the bike up by the rear.
The fronts cracked until I put a brace to the fork on.

Last I heard it was Wendt's. I haven't had time to go out and drill, and Pete's was really rough. The fishermen are reporting 5-7 inches in southern Winnebago and that hardly any ice was made the past week. Need a little more ice for trucks I think.

Swiss is coming up Saturday and dragging Fredette with him.

There is 5" of good ice at wendts as of Tuesday when we rode there and wendts has a fair amount of parking just make sure to go in and support there buisness before you leave just like supporting your plow guys. Currently there is a TT course there that is usable but saw a lot of ride time over the holiday weekend/week and its beat up and will need to modify a few corners or plow a new one.

I plan on being out Sunday too. All I have is the banana to use, and there isn't enough ice for that yet.

Rain next Thursday, then back into the teens for lows. That should smooth Pete's out

It's easy keepin up with you!
You said you plan on being out Sunday too. Which could mean, you are going out sunday as well as saturday, or you will be going sunday along with whoever else is going sunday.

Whatever the case, we need Saturday riders
