You didn't look very hard.

2008 Studded Tire Thread - Rounders Bulletin Board
Baby It's Cold Outside - Rounders Bulletin Board
First snow ride - Rounders Bulletin Board
More snow - Rounders Bulletin Board
First Ride '09 - Rounders Bulletin Board

There are others.

No one is going to do something that isn't safe, given their skill and equipment. LR (typically) overreacted and I had some fun with him. The point remains, however, that if you want to ride in the winter and are going nuts without your two-wheel fix, snow and ice don't need to stop you.

Ummmmm yes they are. People come here for advice, and you gave him bad advice. If making you look stupid is having fun with me, have at it. I'm enjoying it immensely.

"Well I don't want to get in the middle of a Sachi/LR pissing match, but the idea of riding a street bike on public roads in ice and snow is ridiculous. Yes, I'm in FL,..."

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that fire is hot, knives are sharp, and snow and motorcycles don't mix. It doesn't matter if you are in Florida, because common sense can be found all over the country. No experience necessary to tell you some things are just stupid. I am in no pissing match, but for someone to flippantly tell anyone to go out and ride in snow and ice on the roads in a major US city is not only stupid, but dangerous. That isn't pissing, that is fact.

Perhaps "contest of urination" would have been a better phrase?

Yes, I'm in FL, but I've traveled a lot, and even with 4 wheels those conditions are dangerous. The Rounders site clearly does not support the conclusion that people are operating bikes in those conditions, except for putzing around on dirt bikes in snowy fields.
After driving on your wet sea shell infused pavement I wouldnt want to ride in the wet in south florida. None the less the blue hair factor, at least when they are weaving all over they are only doing about 15mph. But they may not stop if your in front of them...

I think I'm seeing a niche motorcycle market opportunity. A true winter bike. Light, not too much torque, say, under 500cc, designed with riding in sloppy condition in mind, yet with high levels of rider comfort/protections (heated seat & grips, electric outlet, very protective faring system). And a good enough protection package that the bike can fall over without damage.

OK, who's making that?
