Does anyone ride their F8 in the snow?
 
Just curious. My bike should be finished at the dealer soon. There isn't too much snow in Spokane, but I would like to see how often other people do. Going to try TKC 80s for the first time.

I do, just be careful. I run the same tires also. Ice on the other hand:eek1

I would, afraid of the salt though. It ruins everything.

Your already trying to put your bike back into the shop, and it hasn't even left yet.:D

My main goal is to just head south and then I don't have to deal with snow at all!

For those of you who do ride in the snow, what tires do you feel work best? I'm thinking the K60s but I'd like to hear if there is a better winter tire.

Thanks.

TKC80 - can't think of anything better. I ride them year-long, and the only down-side is the 3,500 or so miles on the rear tire. It gives me the best edge off-road (and in the snow), and I don't feel compromised on the road - even when it rains.

TKC's in the snow and slush work great. TKCs on hard packed snow and ice will kill you. Stay frosty!

I had a karoo T worn out with 3500 miles on it in the video above... Now rides a K60, in 18 inch... Life is good.

You need to get some sheet metal screws or snow rivets in those tires! That was funny watching you slide backwards!

Exactly. Here in Michigan they dump tons of salt when it snows. It destroys everything. But being "The Motor City", they want the cars to fall apart so they can sell more.
