Anybody do winter riding? The Ural crowd can do this im sure. We have some brave soul here. I haven't seen them yet. I'd think the driver would need a body safe to stay dry. Snow is ok but salt and slush im not sure....comments?
I rode my outfit for several years year around back in the seventies but don't do much these days. the big problem in those days was the salt. I used to rewire the bike twice each winter because the salt would "eat" the wires right off the bike, especially around the connections. These days I use a snowmobile suit sprayed with tent waterproofing to keep dry, and use trials universal tyres with hex head sheet metal screws in the knobs for traction. Even one wheel drive works well this way. My main concern is that the majority of cage drivers out there are brain dead with their phones and texting and this is really scarey in dry conditions without considering snow and ice. Luckily I live in the back country with lots of lightly travelled roads
Thane..i know that feeling seeing distracted drivers. Totally impaired. I was hit by one..fortunately i was in my van. I'm in tbe country too. I did one lap on my 1969 Harley Sidecar during first snow years ago. Wasn't all that squirrelly big heavy bike though.
I see at Petes Superbike they have winter tires!
Is it possible to insert pics here? In the buy and sell forum it's possible. That festure may not be available here...Doug
I ride year round , ski clothing to keep dry - i do make an attempt to stay off the roads
on the particularily wet and slushy days though - i dont NEED to be out on the bike on
the worst for days after all !
