The secret to winter riding is to wait till it rains and clears the salt, or the temperature is above 35 degrees, so that wet is wet, not black ice. As far as "grit" is concerned, just watch for "alternate" traction in the corners. Staying in the tire tracks usually is the ticket.
Yes, the salt can hurt the pretty bikes. That's why everyone should have a "beater" like that one you have with the stickers!
p.s., drove up to Blue Mountain this morning, and the roads were fine!
