Believe it or not, it was easier to slide my 950 around in the snow than my 530. The weight is and feels so low. Worst that happened was I had to put my foot down a few times. Might be because the tires (conti's) were not as agressive as the tires on my 530, making it easier to slide. At least that's how it felt. I was able to do complete donuts like those stunters you see doing burn outs on pavement.

This is what happened trying the same thing on my 530.
