Oh for heaven's sake, LR. No one is suggesting that he take stupid risks. The guys (and women) who ride through the winter choose bikes (usually small dp bikes) and tires to handle the snow and ice. They also stud their tires, so they have decent grip. They choose their routes so they don't have to worry much about traffic. And I should add that several of the riders who live in the northeast and midwest -- not exactly out in the stick -- are still riding."Seriously - we have guys up in Alaska and Canada who are still riding."
Fine, as long as they are riding in the middle of nowhere. John there lives in Cleveland. I said it before and it is worth repeating that anyone that rides on snow and ice in an urban area is a complete idiot. ShingleJohn, it is much better to be depressed than run over by a truck that can't stop. DO NOT listen to people that say it is safe. It isn't. Wait until the roads are dry and then ride. Don't be an idiot.
You are too easy to bait.First, you are suggesting he take stupid risks by riding on snow and ice in an urban area. . . . .
Did you even check the Rounders site? I thought not.Sorry, but your stupid advice is just stupid advice. Calling me names doesn't change that fact.
Translation: I couldn't take going to the Rounders' website and find out she was right.Believe me on this one, I don't need to check a stupid website to know what's up in Chicago when it comes to motorcycles and riding here. I've only been doing it for 40 years, so spare me the 'speaking from ignorance' bullshyt counselor.
