How was the ride. The snow looks a little sticky, maybe your bike gained 20 lbs.

Here's some video from yesterdays snow ride. The last one I venture out onto the streets for awhile. So it's a true DS ride.

Can't seem to embed the rest of the videos, so I have to do it this way. Click on the photo to run the vids. When the page loads, then click Small or Medium at the top and it will run smoother and faster. Damn computers....

Cool vid, looks like some great riding over there, snow, or no snow. Those studs look like they help quite a bit, doesn't riding on the road tear them up? You had to be getting some looks riding down the road on the bike in the snow.

Yes, riding on hard surfaces dulls the screws in a hurry. Spin your tire a few times and they are shot. I was trying to take it easy on the road and these screws aren't that fresh. I wouldn't do it with a new set.

How often do they let you out, so you can ride?

Park any closer, I would be breaking a law. They don't want get away vehicles too close but then again who would want to ride in these temps(only the mentally insane).

My winter beater, 95 KLR 250 I picked up cheap. I added heated grips, homemade wind deflectors, a modified tall windshield from a KLR 650, and a set of Trackmasters studded with the Aerostitch screw in studs. It's my daily commuter when temps are above 15 degrees, below that it's just to damn cold.
I like the 250 for winter riding as it's relatively light and easy to handle and the low power output works well in slippery conditions.

Nice video. Riding the creek bed is a great idea for a new place to ride in winter. Encourages me more to get my wr studded for next year.
Is it hard to kickstart a bike in the winter? Will the kickstart be slippery?
The last minute of the video was the best. I enjoyed seeing the bike plow through the snow.
