When the first snow of this winter fell, Kenny went out to see what it felt like to ride in it. Being that neither of our DRZs have studs in their tires, it was just a quick run around the neighborhood. You know – for scientific purposes.

As an observer there was something beautiful about seeing the orange glow of his headlight slowly making it’s way through the whirling snowflakes. While the snow started to accumulate the world outside had a very flat, muffled sound. There was no noise except for the gentle thump of his engine.

He would be the first to admit that riding on the snow without studs is, well.. probably not a great idea. Your mileage may vary.

ADVrider has a winter riding picture thread you should check out. There are some great photos of motorcycles in the snow. Enjoy!
