Mike and others with studded tires, if you have any chance to try, go ahead! I know how I'll be spending saturday!

I would love to, but all our lakes are snow covered. It is anowing today again. I will remember to try it next year before the snow coveres the lakes.
Good to hear your having fun!

Well, that leaves me a lot of trails to ride and now the lakes too. So I'm not complaining. Besides riding in snow this deep takes a lot of fuel! I usually get about 5.7 liter/100 km consumption and now it takes about 7.2 litres.
Also too much snow makes riding difficult, there's hardly any grip in the rear, the wheel just spins.
So in my opinion, the weather's fine. I hope some more snow though, since I live in a small city and can't avoid asphalt and have lost already some studs from my rear tire.
Check out these pictures of studs of ice use only. I've once tried a CR500 with such tires. Pulling wheelies at 4th gear on ice require a lot of grip. http://www.iceroadra...pg&cat=1&page=1 http://www.iceroadra...pg&cat=1&page=1 http://www.iceroadra...pg&cat=1&page=1

The pictures weren't from my bike. I don't know about sizes.
