I finally finished "spiking" my tires. I used about 170 elevator bolts (1/4 inch in dia. 1 1/2 inch long) nuts and washers. To drill the holes, I used a 5/16 drill bit. A liner is recommended so I used some reinforced polypropelene ( 50 mils thick with string) from work. I kinda made my own pattern so I don't know how well they will work. I will try and get some pictures in a day or two. :aj: :aj: :aj:

Tom how much of the screw sticks out of the knobby? Also how many screws per knob did you use?

woodsy,
A good farm boy would grab the bull closer to the other end to make him move faster. You had the right concept anyway.

The bolts are sticking out about 3/4". Only 1 per knobby and they are spread apart. I think I have 86 in the back and 94 in the front.

Inca: I havent seen any "good farm boys" around for years - perhaps this is why :) Is that where all those real deap furrows around the perimeter of the farm fields used to come from?
Tom, you have GOT to take a shot of those tires for us..... Might be the anwser to all my lack of traction problems! This DEEP power really makes life interesting...

Got the pics Tom, and posted them for you. Pretty innovative technique. I don't know much about studding up tires, but I'm sure you'll be giving Woodsy a run for his money with these mounted up.

-> Front Studs

-> Rear Studs

Pretty good Smitty!!! At first I looked and though "Oh - my - God, what was Tom thinking??""

It'll be easy to give Woodsy a run for his money. Last time he and I rode he was spitting off the knobs from his tire, let alone the screws that were in them. The roost from an open class two stroke is an awesome thing!

YOU PIKER SMITDOG!! :) :) You have earned a closeup demo of the "awesomeness" of an open class 2 stroke roost....
CONGRATS!!!!
Oh, by the way, I just ordered a new Dunlop 752 for this "memorable occasion". Like Mark said, "Kadie" has thrown off most of the knobs and screws from the new Michelin I just put on and you deserve better then only getting roosted from the side knobs. :) :)
On a much more serious note:
Bill (or anyone for that matter), I noticed on your "slide show" of pics for the Trailfest you had one of a "shrine" that, I am assuming, was meant to honor one of ours (fellow rider). Do you know the story behind that?
Just curious..

That one was for you Woodsy! :debil:

And before you can roost me, you have to pass me! :eek:

Alrighty then, here are the awesome studs Tommy D put together:

-> Snow Ripper Rear

-> Snow Ripper Front/Rear

I sure wouldn't want to get run over by this guy. But next spring when my lawn needs aerating, I'll know who to call...
