    Such a sad sight Guy! Snow kinda sucks for riding. Being a Texas resident I don't have to contend with it, but I have on occasion. Couple of times, on long tours, I got into snowy/icy conditions--Wyoming in late September was just poor planning. Growing up in Missouri we had real winters. Home one day on a snow day, I decided to goof around the farm on my little Kawi 100. It was comical. I dropped that thing more times inside of 10 minutes than all other drops in the 30 years since. Fun, but I wouldn't do it with the bikes (or the bones) I have now.

    Snow and bikes. Memories of pulling the snow covered tarp off my bikes, and slowly running down an icy road with feet down. Memories of riding down a hill, realising I was on ice and a busy road cross ways the bottom. Just got off. 550 lbs of Kwaka and me sliding to the bottom, but not into the traffic. Memories of riding through snow storms, slow. Walking into the stops and the ice falling from the front of my jacket. Memories I treasure. Guess you had to be there, or been there.

    Its not what difficulties life throws at us, but how we face them that defines us....

    Sounds like that bike needed tracks and a ski Tranteruk!
