    Riding in snow is not bad, leave plenty of room for stopping and between you and other vehicles. Ice on the other hand is bad news! Be cautious and dress appropriately!

    Get a better front tire than the stock. A Shinko SR422 would do. If you're getting on ice, get a spare set of tires and stud them. Hippo hands or (my preference) brush guards would be nice. Roll starts stop being a good option in the snow, so a kickstart is helpful, especially for the random dead battery.



    I'm a big fan of having two or three sets of wheels with different tires for different situations.

    You might also look into the Shinko SR244. The 244 is the replacement for the obsolete SR422. I think the only place you can still get the SR422 is at dyslexictiresareus.com

    You can 'try' something like this to get a 'feel' for the effectiveness of studs. A box or two of these at the local hardware store should run about $12 and likely last a season. Should you end up feeling comfortable riding through the Winter, then you can invest in a second set of wheels and officially stud them. This made a big difference for me when walking on icy sidewalks. The screws were easy to put in and take out. Suspect the knobs on your tires are thick enough that penetration to the tube is unlikely as would be any significant issues with balance (all my opinion). Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    Ah you're right. I always get those numbers backwards.

    Aw being in the woods while it's snowing is great. The way snow drowns out noise, you just hone in on your surroundings. Then you go fishtail on stuff.
