Sorry No LT rated Snow Tires

There are no snow tires "load rated" for the LT.

Just use CHAINS

I've been fortunate, very little Parked Motorcycle Syndrome (Maybe we can get it recognized as a disease ) this winter.

It'll pass, but, don't forget you'll need to "blow the carbon out" of the engine when the weather clears

Scurrie: Greetings. I'll trade you weather. 10 more inches of the white stuff overnight. About 36 inches deep here. More snowplowing and LT polishing today!

God, please make it melt soon.

We don't get much snow and ice here in Waco, but I'm prepared to mount a set of these on the LT . . . should the opportunity present.

Snow and Ice.

Snow is what we put in a little white cone with some flavoring, ( cherry is nice) I agree it is difficult to drive with a snow cone in hand.

Ice... I still don't understand why you all keep it outside where you can't ride instead of in the freezer where it belongs.

PMS here stands for Pure Midday Sun.

Sorry guys...you only harass those you love.

Scurrie,
I feel your pain as I sit not too far north of you watching the snow turn to slush as I write. And there's not even any motorsicycle road racing to watch on the speed channel! There must be a bug or two left on the bike from last year's riding that needs to be removed to make room for the 2008 hatchlings. Ho-hummm. Let's hope for an early spring.

Let It Snow

Lots of snow up here in the Great White North and cold. I put my baby away for the winter and downhill ski til the white stuff disappears.
