'09 KLR in today's snow

Got bored today...thought I'd try out my KLR in today's snowfall. We got 8".
I tried to back the KLR out of the garage...it's a 2' decline out of the garage. ..no go. As soon as it hit the drift, it stopped. Then I tried to pull it back into garage. No go . Just spun the wheels on the 2' incline back into garage. I was laughing the whole time. Wife took pics for my later embarassment, I am sure!!

Anyhow, I finally spun, and spun, kicking gravel everywhere...got it back into the garage. Cured my ennui, that's for sure!!

Well, it's back to work tomorrow...gotta drive 200 miles...hope the roads are clear. Gonna take the truck - the KLR stays in the garage, LOL!!

Y'all be careful out there!

And I have a snowmobile that's sitting because there's no snow.

Something's wrong here...

Two important words for riding on snow and ice............ Studded Knobbies. I may ride to the cabin this spring without them but I'll be real careful. The ride would be on the freight trails that the big wide track snowmachines and snow cats make all winter. 80 miles on frozen rivers and swamps with no automobiles. If there were cars i wouldn't think of trying.
