I rode one winter in Nebraska getting around in small towns where maybe studs might not have totally sucked, but in a city like Omaha you should be spending well over half your time on mostly clear pavement. I don't know how it would be, never tried them, but I think they would make me unhappy in town. I'd love to get a place out of town and a stud gun.

This is my second winter here in Nebraksa. The first one I rode everyday except the entire month of January. This year there is already snow on the ground and it is only December. I have to get some studed tires and give this a shot before I go crazy. When I was younger I used to ride an XR600 on the snowy streets of Reno with just knobbies. I crashed a few times but at that age it did not bother me. I don't heal as fast as I used to these days.
