    Striking, I agree, but motorcycling in only a straight line has little appeal.

    I would have liked to have seen him try a few turns.

    Very interesting but it really wouldn't help much here in Ontario as studded tires were outlawed several decades ago. Pity.

    I was a bit disappointed in it ! When Max does a video it's good - the tires looked good - got me all excited - then straigh line driving - a burnout on the ice.
    Big deal -
    this would of been better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czitk...eature=related

    I can't even walk on ICE...much less zip across it. He does seem to be rolling at a good clip at one popint. Howz about a Bonneville Ice Flats run!

    The guy who studded the tires did a beautiful job.




    As it turns out the pattern made the bike very difficult to turn. They'll be out on the ice again with new tires soon.

    Right now Team Max is at the Sandblast submarine rally. We race tomorrow and it is going to be cold and wet.
