Snow is so unusual for us, that we decided to stay there for a while.

We don't often get snow in the South of England but it's a real treat when it happens, even if it was only a few inches There was plenty of ice underneath though after 2 weeks of sub zero temps.

There's a short slideshow here

I ride my dirtbike all winter long... the snow and ice can give you better traction than dirt if everything is good...nice and icey over a good snow base....I always laugh when you hear people around here yeah I will work ot [nothing else to do around here in the winter]...considering it could be nasty for months thats allot of waiting..and then you get some people saying isn't it cold on a bike..Uh yeah about as cold as it is skiing,snowmobiling,ice scatting...etc..etc..go get some good dirtbike riding pants over your jeans and then you will have them for some off roading this summer.

Since all I have right now is a 2008 FZ1 I restrict my riding to days that there is no (or very little) snow and ice on the road. Barring that, temp doesn't matter. It was 30F when I left for work this AM and the only problem I encountered was poor visibility due to ice buildup on my visor. I do however look forward to getting a dualsport so I can ride through the snowy times and off road. Anyone interested in trading a dualsport for a 95' Yamaha YZF600?

Thumb CoLd.

I just got back from a Geology research trip from Africa, Malawi to be exact, and now I am battling the cold on the dirtbike everyday to school. It is quite a change from 100 plus to -10, a bit shocking on the body.

So far I have had numerous problems with the motorcycle, including someone kicking my bike over and ruining both the kickstarter (already worn out) and my clutch handle. This week will hopefully be my first full week of riding the bike everyday to school, although not the first time!!!

Nice pictures everyone, makes me want to just go ride around for hours, but then I get on my dirtbike without handlebar heaters and realize why I don't just go ride around for hours when its - 10 or -20 degrees, maybe when it hits above the 0 F mark. I think I found some better gloves, but still only lasts about 20 minutes in really cold weather. Does anyone know if those handlebar covers work very well, I thought they might because they are wind and water proof?

Keep ridin'!

Nice pics odonnks. Too bad we don't know where that is.

How about a location in your avatar or profile? Don't be afraid, we're all friends here.

Warmest regards from the far and frosty north, Mark H.

Yes, the Hippo Hands do work nicely. I am able to use summer weight gloves year round with the hippo hands and grip heaters. Without the grip heaters, I imagine a nice pair of cold weather gloves would be needed. Though the covers are not waterproof, they do keep your hands fairly dry. Wind does not get to the hands, so even thin winter gloves should be good.
