Used to go see the motorcycle ice races at various locations each winter when I lived in Michigan. Two basic types indoor and outdoor . Indoor tires are fitted with #10 hex head aircraft screws dirven into the tire knobs. Outdoor uses 1 inch stainless spikes and makes a truly greusome looking wheel. Monster nads required for outdoor motorcycle ice racing.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...nnmotorrad.jpg You guys up Montana way might want to look into this for winter riding

Last winter someone had plowed a course on top of the local lake for bikes! I had to stop and watch, and took a little video with my phone. Looks like fun to me!! Here's a link to the video:

Yes it is fun...thanks for the clip!!

We use to have the Alberta 500....from Fort Normandeau(west of Red Deer) to Drumheller and back on the Red Deer river.
They quit doing it..I don't know why..shyte we use to have over 200 entries every year.I think they couldn't make any $$ at it...hard to control the crowds on the river banks(charging admission)
