I'd love to try that. Cycle Canada had an article a few years ago about motorcycle ice racing using Hayabusas. Looks wild. Low siding wouldn't be bad as long as the snowbanks were soft. Can you say heated grips?

You can say that this guy might be "crazy"! But I wouldn't go to the extent as to calling him a "squid"!

Whats crazy about it? You can ice race with cars, why not bikes. They do it with dirtbikes all the time. My dad used to ice race cars and the pro classes used to use hopped up 351 Ford motors in Opals. Those things flew.

That's why I said "might". And that's a statement for some! Some people think us bikers are crazy in the 1st place!

I rode mine on packed snow last year trying to get up my girlfriends driveway to the garage. It was a slight grade up to the garage and I didn't go anywhere. I needed a set of those gixxer tires.

That would be a blast. Snowmobiles are even better. Just wish we got snow around here. A little snow and a lot of cold makes for a long winter.
