Re: BMW and snow

Both very unique circumstances.
First we have a side car meet. Not so unusual.
Then this guy was out hunting and ran into a herd of buffalo. He did a pretty good job of getting the skin off.
ride safe

Re: BMW and snow

The #12 pic was interesting. First time I have seen snow chains for a m/c.
I think I'd need some bigger gonads w/ electric warmers and plenty of that schnapps to get me two wheeling in those conditions. Though the sidecars look doable. I do like the fur coat for that bike.
I wonder if he just shampoos it and rinses?

Re: BMW and snow

That's crazy! But it looks like a lot of fun, once you get past the cold. The hybrid track and m/c vehicle looks neat. I guess he doesn't worry about slippery routes. Unfortunately, I also noticed the local nudist colony was represented. Why can't they send females?

I'm thinking that takes years of getting climatized.
