The question is, how many people are going to be on the Team NunBus Race Team?

Does Freddette make NunBus tires? That could get scary - I have a mental image of a crossed-up NunBus scattering bikes like skittles as it slides by the apex.

Pipe down Lemmy!!

Somehow, I was volunteered at the Central Rally.

It couldn't be much worse that the abuse it took up in Wabeno!

Yah I got that the first time!

Couple things to consider:

1. Our 'race pace' wouldn't be so abusive as people who actually look like they should be out there (we could probably pace the bloke that kept cheering for himself coming through our corner tho!)

2. The sooner it breaks, the sooner the team can rehash events of the day over beer while watching everyone else circulate.

3. It'd probly be the only one out there, so as to give spectators the ultimate underdog to root for

You can, but ice screws work more bettah, IMO.
They look like sheet metal screws, but they are concave on the top with a sharp edge.

What Roy said, also to include a slighty raised edge and they are hardened. The Pro-golds (which are really black) have been the screw of choice lately withthe regular Kold Kutters falling out of favor. Canadian screws have seen a rise in popularity, but are not AMA legal for competition. They have an even taller head profile for better traction in the fluff.

Sheet metal screws are for sheet metal. Don't put them in a tire.

Being concave, they would have a raised edge on top, wouldn't they?


I did forget hardened though.

Actually, I don't. You have had way more motorcycle problems than I have, but I only have 4.
