    This website says Casco, which I gather is on the north end of the lake.

    http://www.pinetreetrailriders.com/w...re_to_ride.htm

    I'd imagine that there will be beer there. How could there not be beer there?
    It also would appear that you may be able to ride without the typical full coverage soviet era fenders and tether kill switches, but call the info number to be sure. I was just looking at the photos section.
    Cheers,

    Very cool event and I didn't know they do road race courses as well as the oval. Is that normal?

    Yeah, I think so, maybe, which is to say that on the east coast it's not as common as it would be in the north-central states..Michigan and Illinois. There's an annual 3 hour enduro somewhere out there that is a road course. You enter a team, and it's a pretty big deal, a charity thing I think, but they didn't have ice this year.
    But I've talked to guys around here that build ice tires that turn both ways as well as just oval tires, in which case they usually shave them for a better left side profile.
    How many bikes were there? Did you ride? Was there enough light? Was there beer?

    I think there was around 30 guys and quite a few spectators. There was only a few people for the Adult Mini class but I entered that and I also entered the Road Race Main Event. I won the Adult Mini main event and then raced my XR100 against what seem to be very fast bikes. Once I got used to the whole thing and got up to speed I felt good but pretty much got my ass handed to me.

    I also realized that I was the only one with screws from Aubuchon hardware. Everyone else had real screws or spikes which you could easily tell that they hook up all that much better. All in all, it was very fun.

    the tragedies of thin ice photos at the bottom are priceless.

    Aaron, way to go dude. Nice way to start the '06 racing season. I'm going to put that race on the calender for next year for sure. You ought to buy some of the ice screws, you'll be impressed, although I guess if you won a race with the aubuchon brand I shouldn't be offering anymore advise...

    Joe, nice page, I'd seen that and forgot where.
    "I think I'll bring my $50,000 hauler on to the ice right by the shore, next to that semi..."
    Some baddass ice tires though.

    yeah, thats what i was thinking. aaron should invest eh??? those tires must take some time to put together. real pretty.

    all those haulers fauling through the ice must have been quite the sight.

    i want an xr.
