Bugs are great in the snow. I ran into a group of imbibed teens on eyear at the bottom of an icy hill in January. We tried to pull them out with the Jeep, but they couldn't drive. I hopped in the Bug, feathered the clutch, and climbed right out, unassisted.

The enxt year, we rolled the same car flattracking on the lake. Waaay cool.

Scud, you're a closet Nazi!

Kettenkrads rule. I actually drove one when I was stationed in D. Not a lot of fun.

Wait a minute!!!!! I know, a Ural Patrol.....I'd like to have one for a beater myself, just fill up the sidecar with beets and cabbage for ballast, a few bottles of Stoli for courage and off you go across the tundra.

You've got a few gems of advice here. I'd look for a bike with a good sized main fairing, sufficient alternator to power heated clothes and some auxillary lights, not too much horsepower (all the better to lose the rear wheel with), and wear something that's very visible (most of us commute at night during the winter).
I have six bikes but in Winter in the Pacific Northwest the Concours gets the most mileage, followed by the V-Strom. The rest wait for warmer winter days and sit on a battery tender.
