    Snow isn't just for skiing

    After a great street ride on Saturday it was time to go check out the snow on Sunday. My brother and I headed up to Herring Creek to go ride in soe snow. Let me tell you riding in the snow is awesome. Anyways here's a few pics of the ride.

    Mole...

    I am puzzled here...are those motorcycles with training outriggers on one side (and, if so, which side) or two motorcycles welded together, side by side?

    Inquiring minds want to know

    Found out this weekend that the TW 200 does ok in the snow too! Didn't do anything too deep, but I think it might have been able to handle it with those big wheels!

    Joel, Kimber - that's awesome! Quads can be really fun too, to ride one, I gotta go over to my brother's and steal my 10 yr old niece's.

    Btw Joel- do you guys ever run spikes in the tires for the snow? We useta have a Honda Odessay (many years ago), and we had two sets of tires, one spiked for running down the river in the middle of winter - worked great! Lotta fun doin' cookies!

    Stampede and Boca Reservoirs freeze over up here in Truckee. I see snowmobiles out every winter. You do have to be careful though. They lose one now & then! I'll stick to tying off to the shore & ice fishing!

    Ya offroad toys are great for when the weather is to crappy to take out the street toys, plus you can go see places your street toys can't get to.

    No we run regular knobbies, its gets pretty slick in some areas but that makes it that much better.

    Now that looks like fun!! I'm not a skier (too spaztic) but I could get into the snow-quad thing for some winter playtime.

    Quads in the snow... Now that really brings back memories of my teen years... I had an '85 Suzuki 230 QuadSport.... Man did I have a lot of fun back then...
