I've ridden regular bikes in the snow and it's difficult to peddle and just wore me out. Would anything bad happen if I added a motor to the mix.
Wow! that is a great thought!! I was thinking of trying small screws from inside the tire with points out. Like this wire idea big time. easy install/removal. With a criss cross pattern... thinking this is a winner.You can wrap the tire with bailing wire and they will go pretty good on the snow and ice. But you will still fall down......................
You didn't try hard enough or ride long enough then.Ive been driving in the snow all day with skinny 1 3/8 tires and i didnt fall once but if i wasnt careful i probably could of.
If your wondering what the magneto cover is doing off my engine, Its because there's no peddles so its push start which doesn't work too well in winter.. So I use a drill on the nut that holds the magnet on to start it. works pretty good. The cloth is to soak up the gas that leaks out of the rivets. I never though of that when I used rivets to hold on the chain. As for driving in winter, I want to drive my MBs all winter long. My Dad is planning on driving his '05 Honda Jazz To work all winter long. Mbs work better than mopeds in winter because of the skinny tires.
In my short experience with engine powered bikes...It's obvious... it's a cobblers delight I love the rag around the fuel tank, totally ingenious!Wait a minute, wait a minute...You're not telling us you drilled holes in your fuel tank...Please don't say you did. I see a chain up there on the tank. Is that to lock up your bike? An anti-theft device? Have you ever considered the possibility of fire with gasoline dripping down on that exposed mag? Holy Moly, guy.
I said i "rode all day" is that long enough? There was a couple close calls but other then that it was fine. Im a very experienced rider so dont tell me its because i didn't try hard enough or ride long enough.You didn't try hard enough or ride long enough then.
Take a deep breath...Today you have been there done that! Keep going and be the guru of snow riding...teach others.I said i "rode all day" is that long enough?
