    No snow yet in the city but I'm sure I'll hit some on the way home.

    My technique:

    Ride slow
    Keep your distance
    Ride straight on metal plates/manhole covers
    Be alert
    Be alert
    Be alert
    Did I mention to Be Alert???
    Assume every cabbie is out to hit you

    Ok, I'll bite. Snow wasn't really sticking, but I liked the above post with the scooter...we can be just as badass as we twist our little automatics :D

    Yeah, there's a wee bit of snow on the seat.

    On topic, 'bout the best I have done it 50 miles when it was 8 degrees. Around here the sand and salt at the first snowflake so I do not ride in the winter.

    Does woods riding on an XR count?
