At the Barber Vintage Motorcycle museum in Birmingham, there is a bike from the 30s or 40s that has skis on it. It was sold as an option, along with a funky rear tire (looks like a paddle tire used in sand).


I think its kinda stupid that their helmets are not camo.

I don't know. I've only ridden snowmobiles a couple of times in my life and the last time was in 1990.

For you guys who have ridden snowmobiles and motorcycles, what would be more fun, a dedicated snowmobile or one of these things? Maybe be hard to tell if you've never experienced this snow "conversion" thing.

I'm sure a snowmobile would be a lot faster and more comfortable, but not as maneuverable as one of these things.

And, no, I'm not looking at acquiring either one: just curious what you snowmobilers think.
