>Anyone here ride in snow?
Not recently. In the winter of 1981-82, I was riding on ice and snow all the way from Texas to Virginia. When I got to the Naval Air Station at Virginia Beach, the base was closed because of the snow and they wouldn't let me in, so I had to get a hotel for another couple days and wait for them to decide the roads were clear enough to open the base again.
Normally, I wouldn't travel in those conditions, but I was up against a deadline that time. It really slows you down. In good weather I would do however many consecutive 800 mile days it took to get wherever, but that trip I didn't make 300 miles on my best day.
