    Justin B @ Butler Maps loaned him the bike. Notice the big BM sticker on the side. Justin is on a Ducati right now in AZ. Our Facebook page has all the visuals and info. Jamie has mad riding skills. Thanks Everyone!!!

    Cool video. Thanks for posting. You know it's slick when you're on flat terrain lifting the back of the bike and the front is sliding away from you :D What's Drive? Some Youtube magazine? I tried to click the Facebook link on their Youtube home page but link is bad.

    The bit at the end where he's pivoting the entire bike on the side stand had me cringing but he does indeed have mad skills. I hate riding in snow. Anyways, thanks again!

    I tried to ride in the snow once. Thaaaat didn't work out so well. Here's a shot of it upright just before the 15 or so crash. Gotta learn how to ride in that stuff one day.

    I want to know where that little place is in the video with all of the icicle lights strung up outside. Looks pretty cool.

    I'd rather be off-road in the snow than on the road most times!
