Sounds like fun! Was wondering if the bike had a thermostat. With the FI and a T-Stat in place, the engine is running perfect. Must make good power in all that cold.

The suspension probably was stiff in the little hacky stuff as it has MX valving and the oil thick as molasses. I would just dial the compression adjusters all the way out

Very cool! Years ago I'd go up to Mineola Bay on Fox Lake in Fox Lake, Illinois and sit in the tavern and watch the ice races on the bay. Can you say hammered?! Good fun!

By "nuts," do you mean "cool and adventuresome"? Or just nuts...?

Just nuts.

Keep in mind I've never lived in a climate with an average temperature lower than the mid-80's. The idea of deliberately riding a motorcycle on solid-state water makes about as much sense to me as...well...it makes no sense at all. But I'm glad they like it.

Well, consider the situation of riders who live in snowy climes and are unable to ride for several months of the year. The limited opportunities to ride force some enthusiasts to venture out on the ice. Not only are they riding, they're having a blast!

An excellent point. It's easy to forget that winter closes out riding for people who don't live in warmer climates.
