Went for my third ride of the season today. It wasn't the best ride, but it sure was fun. The lakes around here are frozen solid with at least 6 inches of ice. Not much snow has fallen, but we did have a dusting. So, I went out and bought 96 studs and installed all of them in an hour and a half. To it to the lake and ripped around for a few hours. The little snow that did fall, all blew to the east side of the lake. So, there was a foot of snow on that side of the lake. The ice had buckled up a couple of feet in one spot. Which made for a great jump to goof around on. All in all, not a bad ride. I'm just glad I got it out!
