I started an thread on the RT forum joking about "time to put on the knobbies" due to all the snow we've been having in the midwest.

Anyone in GS land strap on the knobbies and ride in the snow? I know the 1200 GS would be a serious handful on snow because of it's weight, but just curious.

Because of it's weight, or lack of weight? 1200GS at about 500lb is not very much weight.
I had a GS850 Suzuki that I rode all year back in the 80's. I lived in Tacoma WA and we had snow serveral times that winter. I rode on the snow with no problems. I did grow up in North Dakota. As a kid I put a homemade ski on the front tire of my Schwin bike and chains on the rear. I rode on top of the snow banks. :histerica
