Sorry, but as much as I would love to ride. I just won't get on the bike anytime there might be ice on the roads... It's just too dangerous...

That front wheel can come out on you in a split second and you're down.

Too many stories on face plant for an old fart like me to take the chance...

Good luck though....

Raining here for hours and then well above freezing. Parts of the road were actually dry! Most were not. I used to ride year round and am VERY aware of shaded spots etc. The sand etc on the roads around here is worse than the roads were today.. Old fart could be thought of as "experianced"

DEVO song.....
