New Year's Day ride. It was pretty nice out with the fresh snow.

Wife and I have fished that lake many a time over the years.It is a gem of a state park.The old stone lodge still fascinates me.

Using the rear brake had to be a little interesting.

No, but there is a heated grip switch.

And what rear brake? That's the nice thing about riding around in the snow, not much need for brakes.
