Heck yes, its a good ole time! Thats what I have my old yami for, just throw some studded tires on her! Hasnt gotten cold enough this winter for any ice otherwise a bunch of people around here go racing on the Mississsippi River. I must admit though, Ive never seen a "sportbike" on the ice.

I have spike for my WR450 - it's a blast!
I live on a lake and everyone thinks I'm crazy..
It's not as crazy as it looks if you are running the right spikes....


I like to wheelie the entire length of the lake to really show people how crazy I am....

I've ridden (gingerly!) over mountain passes with snow and ice, but it's not something I enjoy.
I'm with you Curmudgeon!

We don't get much snow or very often here in Sydney, but this was 2 years ago on a dirt road about 250k north of Sydney. ***** hard work sliding at 5-10kph with the clutch in and the feet down!

The worst was the [email protected]#dy 4wdrives coming the other way. 1) they take up a lot of room on narrow road 2) they have no idea about speed in these conditions and 3) they have no idea about sharing the road.
