Tuesday is was dry and 35 degrees in Connecticut, so I went riding. Yesterday, major Ice storm. Today, in the past hour we've already had snow, ice, and sun.

Connecticut doesn't allow snowmobiles on public roads, and allows studded tires from November 1 to March 31, so, if you want to ride on snowy roads, a carefully spec'ed winter bike is a viable way to go. If I had the extra bucks, I'd seriously consider it.

I think I'm seeing a niche motorcycle market opportunity. A true winter bike. Light, not too much torque, say, under 500cc, designed with riding in sloppy condition in mind, yet with high levels of rider comfort/protections (heated seat & grips, electric outlet, very protective faring system). And a good enough protection package that the bike can fall over without damage.

OK, who's making that?
