Well here's my story of the ATL ice fiasco: Left work at noon shortly after the snow started coming down. Didn't think much of it, ridden in snow before so how bad could it get right? It was still pretty clear on the roads and went a few miles with no issues, but got into a total standstill halfway home. Kept trying different roads to get around but the amount of ice on the side roads was a little unnerving. I could ride on it but not really well. Slipped it pretty bad in some black ice in my best Garry Mccoy impression on a side road, thought for sure I was going down... I kept it up... but accidentally bumped the rear brake at the wrong time while riding over the ice and stalled the bike. Bike wouldn't start, dead battery. Usually the heated gear isn't a problem but I guess sitting still for so long I just didn't think about it. Thought I was screwed because no way I was getting a tow at this point with so many wrecks around. Good samaritan helped me bump start the bike (he insisted). Dropped the tire pressures as much as I could since it didn't look like we were going over 5mph the rest of the day. Kept idling up the road, traffic wasn't moving, going just a few car length every 10 minutes. Thought about turning around but there was gravel in my lane which was a huge help, there was none going back the other way so I just stayed with it. Thought if Hwy 140 looked a lot better than Arnold Mill Rd I'd stay on that and park the bike at the first decent parking lot. They both looked bad so I just went for Arnold Mill Rd to get home. Went up the first hill trying to stay on the drier part but slipped it anyways, went down only going ~10mph. Was weird, felt like the whole bike just slid out from under me before I could even register anything was happening. Probably for the best because if I slipped going down the following hill it could have been sketchy. Good samaritan #2 helped me get the bike up and put it next to the guardrail, coincidentally he lives 5 houses down from me and said he was on his way home, I took it as a sign and rode back with him. Wife was only 5 minutes behind me, fortunately I was able to call her right before she got there so she got warned what was ahead: Last night the wife and I walked the mile to the bike to check on it after the snow stopped: I was afraid since I was near the bottom of a hill my bike got hit by someone but it was safe. There were about 15 or so cars stuck near me at this point. Tiff had fun w/ by bike: BIG THANKS to Tam and Chas for helping me with the recovery of the bike after the roads started clearing up, they've been helping people yesterday and all day today in Woodstock: Back home safe and sound: Some minor rash on the crash bars, only because I've been lazy lately and not re-installing the sliders in them after maintenance: ...and a broken turn signal (but it still works!): The ice caught the fairing a bit but this was the only spot: But nothing major. Bike still started right up even after sitting overnight in the cold on a weak battery. We had to de-thaw my ignition with a hand warmer packet to get the key in and I had a crazy amount of icicles on my bike by the time it got back to the garage.
