    Alaskan winter ride

    Pics from a WInter ride near Wasilla alaska. Two feet of snow on the ground so I'm riding on packed snomachine trails on a tw modified with ATV tires front and rear. I have a build thread on the forum if you're interested in details. This trip goes toward the talkeetna mountains from my house.

    Oh and a few quick winter riding tips. Your kickstand needs a pice of plywood attacked to the bottom to be of any use. You need to dress really warm and dry as it really freezes your legs especially even going slow at negative ten degrees. You need studs. It will improve your skills as a rider. You actually need ATV tires with deep tread to do this in most cases.

    Well done. Looks beautiful and cold. Thanks for the pics.
    Tires looks perfect for the conditions. Do you have much power to spare when pushing those through the snow?

    Power is rarely an issue in the winter. It's always traction especially in loose snow. If it's on ice or hard pack it's the opposite. Theres not really enough power to break the tires loose if the studs have something to hook up with. Been 2 years since I've rode that bike miss riding so much.

    You and Mr. Bigwheel should get together for a ride! I'm sure you've seen his videos riding up there in the snowy months on his BW.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    A winter wonderland! Looks like fun. But....I'll bet its incredible in the summer when it is sweatshirt weather instead of Kanook the long haired Husky weather!

    Hey I see you're in AK. Where are you at? I split my time between Anchorage and Wasilla.
