Riding on ice is a total blast. Kyle you are going to have fun. A few years ago a buddy of mine had 2 KTMs set up with ice tires. A guy up in Quebec built the wheels. There is quite an art to installing the carbide studs and they can be tuned to the type of race you might be riding. Our wheels were set up for left turn oval so there were more studs on the left and center of the tires. Right side, not so much. There is virtually no wheel spin and the traction and lean angles you can achieve is nuts. When you first go out on the ice it is hard to get your head around that your not going to instantly crash. But you won't, coming out of the corners you can whack the throttle and lift the front wheel. Be sure to wear ALL your body armor and face protection even under a full face helmet. Ice chip roost stings. One last caution; motocross boots on ice are super slippery on ice, so be careful dismounting your bike. It is so easy to slip and drop your bike. Have fun!! It's like no other motorcycle experience.
