    Parking the bike up for winter?
    Cold season just means I put another layer on and occasionally turn my heated grips on.

    Not a bad video for weak willed fair weather riders though.

    Well, cold is a state of mind; how do you cowboy up when the roads are more ice/snow than asphalt?

    Howdy ozmoses,

    Well..............ya just have to have the right bike, er rig. But even with the right rig and two wheel drive if you work at it you can still find snow that will in time stop you.

    Hey-have you ever seen the factory ski kit for an old Indian? Fit the Scout, I think.

    It's great, I mean they were actually encouraging you to get out & ride in the snow!

    ' Course, they didn't have 2-wheel drive...
