    Winter Riding 2017/2018

    After an overnight blizzard, I decided to take the TW out for a romp in the fresh snow.

    I said to myself, "self, stay out of the ruts". I didn't stay out of the ruts. Front wheel wanted to go one direction and the rear, well, it wanted to do it's own thing.


    It was about 25F (-4C) degree's out when I left and about 40F (+4C) degree's when I got back home a few hours later.


    Don't fight the ruts.

    Just like sand and mud, standing is a must in the snow.

    Fair day for riding it turned out to be.

    You got me thinking I should scramble and skip the numbers when I post the winter series. From 2 skip to 4 and make people go crazy looking for 3. However, it seems like I don't have to do it on purpose. #1 is Post #35 "Hey Little Buddy" in the XT200 Files of Other Bikes. https://tw200forum.com/forum/other-bi...tml#post762729

    Doesn't count Kris! For 2 reasons: one it is the XT and not the TW and two it say "XT200 Hey Little Buddy 17 Back 40 Winter Season Seris #1"

    So, I won't go down in history as being the best Title Writer Namerer!

    I was gonna ride the XT to see how it would do on the snow after the TW but I didn't want to go home and switch as the snow was melting. There is still a little left in the shade this morning but pretty much gone. Amazing out quickly 3 feet of snow can melt eh?

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
