Winter ride....

....so I feel like I gave winter the finger today....warmest day in weeks...32deg...lots of packed snow on the mile of road to get to larger dry roads away from my house. I ride lots down to 20deg but snow on the road is harder to do on a 1200GS. It was only a 30mi ride today but it was much needed. (sad..but winter sucks ass)

At least you went out

You just using standard road tyres too? If you put tkc's or something on it would be a bit easier. I had to use my DRZ to go to work when we had bad snow here a couple years ago cause my other bike couldnt even get out of the street

Hmm. That must be why so many WI licence plates are in my 80 degree neck of the woods. It looks rather...harsh.

That's right.
To the winter.
