BMW 12GSA pour la neige (GSA in the snow)

J'ai récidivé avec une toute nouvelle moto acheté en août 2013.
J'ai réalisé cette équipement en octobre et novembre 2013.

Nice picture indeed! Congratulations man, that's awesome.

No French here, but that looks very interesting.

I'm curious about the effectiveness of those skis? It seems that they would have the tendency to force your wheels to skip in the snow if you get down to low. This would force you into a low side every time you put too much weight on them.

Well I think that's the same guy. He mentions that the previous system was rigid, without a suspension, as it is now, and that it's better for control now as you can gradually apply pressure without the weight transfer being all sudden.
