    Those enduro tires will hold a shitload of screws, don't know if you have trails or ice near you, but you can put a bunch of ice screws, or even sheet metal screws in those tires and have a lot more fun.
    Then take 'em back out in the spring and the tires won't be any worse, in fact they may have better grip. # 8 screws, 1/2" long, about 1,000 of 'em will be a good start.

    I raced a modified one of those in Enduro's around 1979.
    Actually got a second place in Open Class at one event (entered on 400 Yamaha but sold it few days before event then broke my other bike so had nothing else to ride)
    Pretty indestructible motor.
    It was still running 5+ yrs after I sold it to a farmer who beat the hell out of it around his fields and severely neglected it.
    Probably still running somewhere around Stratford-on-Avon 30yrs later

    PJ
    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me
