i got my fourwheeler out earlier on about 2 inches of solid ice, but it broke through and i flipped the damn thing over. got a good sized gash on my side and bent handlebars now. anyone ever ride their 426's on solid ice? im wondering how stupid i am for thinking about it.

Your not stupid, just inexperienced, and maybe a little wacky. I would look for at least 4 inches of ice, and thats because it is not neccessarily uniform. We ride up here all winter (Manitoba) and as long as your safe, it's a blast. You should try some 1/2 inch Kold Kutters in your tires, you won't believe the traction...

Do it all the time here in WI. What a blast. A lot like road racing only on ice. Setup the cones and go!:lol:

inexperienced, very, wacky, definitely. well here in missouri we havent had ice like this for years and it usually only sticks around for a couple days, so i was curious how insane it would be. im definitely going to have to get out tomorrow and try it out.

so yea, not a great plan... rode around the neighborhood in 1st gear where its been cleared, not so bad. as soon as i hit my backyard the front end washed out and im down. so i pick the bike back up and im stuck there for a couple minutes. so i pushed it out to the road, drove around and put her up. ill try again when theres a little snow on top.

Try to stay a gear high without stalling. It is fun around here in the snow and ice. Just have to watch turns and for stuff to slide into. Las ttime I rode in the ice was years ago on hte trails. It was a challenge.:lol:

yea lots, try the aeira.com . 6 hr indurance and the worlds longest ice race the 24 hr numb bum. it's in Canada though. also check out a ice thickness table before you head onto the ice it might keep you dryier. have fun ice is cool.
