    So the missus told me to get out there and clear the driveway...so I made a donut for her





    my neighbor has big side yard with a small hill/jump. I made a hot lap flat track and circled it until my fingers went numb.





    So fun, just when I realized I could get some screws to put in the tires...the snow started melting.

    Anyone know where to get some studs for motorcycle tires?

    Googled "ice studs for tires" and got a lot of hits. "Dennis Kirk" has a lot of choices, along with a couple of other cycle sites, and Amazon too.

    Don't know much about studs, but when I snowmobiled in Wisconsin, I watched some races on ice. Seems the cheap version of studs was sheet metal screws in to the knobs.



    Some of the guys that had more money had a bought version to put on the tires. Been 10 years since I saw that.

    I put a tire chain on last night and turned the back yard into a little MX track. Got about 6" of sugary snow with a layer of hard crust in the middle, and a layer of ice on the ground underneath...



    The chain on the rear helped a lot but I want to buy some of these screws or similar for the front tire:

    When I took it out on the road (thin layer of slippery packed snow on top of ice) the front tire made it downright dangerous. Braking, turning, anything having to do with the front end was tip-er-over material

    I think the screws would help a lot in that situation. If you do end up screwing your front tire you have to post pictures, cause I'm thinking of doing the same thing and would like to know how it works.

    I have a kenda k270 front tire with voids in the lugs, need to find a tire with solid lugs for the screws so it won't happen this year. Will try hard to wear out the k270 enough to justify a new tire ASAP
