Glad you're ok. Got caught in snow riding from work last Friday. 20 mile ride. Pucker factor was high and I knew I'd have trouble on the secondary roads after the interstate. Sliding, but holding on until I got to the entrance to my neighborhood. Stopped and after the traffic cleared, gave a little throttle and the bike, GL500 Interstate,slid out from under me. No damage and not hurt until I tried picking up the bike. No footing and a sliding bike made it difficult but I finally got it up and walked it into the 'hood. Got back on and rode it home. Sore as hell Saturday from the lifting. I'll never ride in snow again. I ride every day to work rain or shine, hot or cold but, if there is any chance of snow at all, I'll drive in from now on. My wife just shakes her head in dismay and say something about "can't fix stupid".
