    riding in the snow

    went to work tonight and it was epic. You have to have rain gloves on with he wipers on the thumbs or you can't see in about 30 seconds of riding.

    that looks like fun, cold, but fun
    does the engine in the front provide some heat?

    Riding in wet snow until your fingers are ready to commit suicide. Nice.

    Yeah, no, I read you. I used to go out riding my ATV in the wet snow, in the bush, by myself, until my hands were so cold I wouldn't be able to undo my zippers. I'd also ride my dirtbike in the winter when all the sleds had packed the snow solid enough to ride on top of it. It's the shizzle.

    I am no one's hero bud, I got hurt riding so I am suck like this for the time being.

    if it had the traction control turned off it would be hella fun on dirt roads, in real snow and ice the traction control goes batshit, shuts down, it also as only about 4'' of clearence in the front so you can't go crazy with the cheezewiz but it does ok, I have 18,500 miles on it this year and I want to hit 20k before I have to stop riding.
