snow? You're braver than me; I used to ride offroad in the snow periodically until a few bad crashes on hidden ice underneath the snow convinced me of a few things; 1) there is no anticipating when you're going down. 2) everything hurts more in the cold and 3) I'm getting too old for this crap! LOL
No kidding. My buddy (same age as me) rides (rode but read on) a Ural saying it can go "anywhere, anyhow, anytime". So last winter he ended up upside down in a ditch and luckily a grader came along and helped him out. No damage to him, minor to the bike. This winter driving an icey back road an ATV driver came across his path and he couldn't stop so ended up hitting him. Didn’t fair as well this time. Shoulder, wrist and arm injuries and the bike was a write off as the frame bent where the steering passed through it.
I'm also too old for it. Takes too long to heal and my wife is a nurse and I can't bear the "cure", just let me moan in peace please.
But I digress. Welcome to the forum adv_nb. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that you are in New Brunswick. Hope to get out that way some time.
