Agreed. One -can- ride in the snow with minimized risk.There's really no danger of riding in the snow if you use the correct tires and don't think that your 800 lbs bike sporting standard street tires will do. In the 80s I had a dedicated snow motorcycle for riding during the New England winters. It was an old Honda CB360 with knobbies. The real danger is the transition period when snow becomes hardpack or melts during the day and freezes at night. Studded tires worked on that but it wasn't really practical because once I hit cleared asphalt spots the chances of throwing studs increased and I'd have to refit studs after each day of riding.
The bike really does run nice. We didn't do a rebuild given the moderate mileage and super-good compression. But I did do a full tune-up, carb clean, new plugs, adjustments, flush and fluid-change, etc. If I didn't already have both a restored/vintage and a modern Sportie, I'd be tempted to adopt this one.Great video. Sounds like bike was running pretty good. It looked like you face shield was open, would have been too cold for me. By the way, might what to practice stopping at the stop signs. 😁
Thanks. It has cobra drag pipes, jetted and some other mild mods.road_slug, the bike sounds really good! What camera are you using and what's your audio setup? I probably need to upgrade from my 7 year old Contour Roams since they don't have a mic input (for a helmet mic) and the wind noise is usually dreadful at anything above 35mph.
Tanks mang! BTW, nice choice in the dissonant dirt metal intro. I was expecting a 'cop chase on a Kawasaki H2', 'hooligan supermoto wheelie on the highway' or 'mag dump on pumpkins with my AR' type of vid....I use a Gopro hero 3 with adjustable helmet mount and a condensing microphone going under and inside my helmet.
