It would be even better with some trail tyres but I cant find any in the UK. ( might convert to 10" wheels ) The centrifugal clutch is a bit sudden on ice /snow but you can kick it upright easily if it goes pear shaped !!

I got along quite nicely until I hit a good stretch of packed snow. Let me say simply that Metzler Tourances are NOT snow tires! I had very little control. Like I said, next year it's knobbies and studs.

That being said, it was still great to great to get on two wheels for a little while.
I am in TC quite often; my mom and dad live there. I am in Brighton. My son and I both ride up on our Stroms. Keep in touch and lets to a ride this year.
