I went down last year at 10 mph and was amazed at how far I skidded with pedal end digging through the ice. I was taking it very easy cause I saw the ice but the very slight reverse bank on the turn did me in. I had trouble standing up on the ice with my neoprene soled booties to get the bike back up. Got off the paved trail into the dirt and walked/rode back home for the studded tire bike!

it's gonna be a monster. so psyched for you. wonder how long you'll be able to keep it on the bike path. you might as well drop onto 66 now. :twisted:

the old one has been quite a trooper tho, huh? did you have much salt damage? or did you wash it regularly? seems like one ride thru salt can start the destruction.

glad to hear the shoulder's coming around.

I think the heat is getting to people.
WTF?!?!? Never seen THAT before! :lol:

cresh, you do a fine job of containing "the powa" of your motor. I'd have a hard time keeping the speed down, until I had a bad accident, or worse....

Jeez, you know how to hit where it hurts!

Cresh, you are probably going to run studs year-round now, right? :lol:

How's the shoulder?

I will gladly invest in studded tires if it keeps 70 degrees and no snow for the winter :D
