must really hurt when you crash....

The only thing that really hurts is the impact, after that you just slide. My grandfather grew up in St.Clair Michigan, racing full sized motorcycles on the St.Clair river. I'd never try that in AZ but, I got the opportunity to run my sportster on a frozen pond in Baker Oregon, fun stuff.

I kind of remember some years ago a kit to turn a motorcycle kit into a snow mobile, you bolted the back to a rear assembly wit a fat belt, and it has a Ski for a front wheel.

That would be for snow, not ice, but then again about the only ice I ever see is in little cubes ;-}

On that glare ice it is just "PLUNK" and slide, and slide, and slide!

We use #8 x 1/4" hardened hex head sheet metal screws into the tread blocks.
This one is on a KTM and has sipes cut into the treadblocks for wet rocks and logs. The tread is actually backward because it came off my Husaberg (right drive) onto the KTM (left drive).


The limited number of screws on this tire are just to provide a bit of traction and grip on wet ice in winter trail riding.

If you want to run the lakes, throw more screws into it!
