    When all you have are lemons you make lemonade. A trike won't fall over on slick ice or snow, so slap on some studded tires on that puppy and let her rip! From pictures I've seen, that's what the folks in Minnesota do.
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all.

    When we get snow he first thing I do is go out in it, its great fun and really makes you ride much more smoothly
    Otherwise you fall on your arse.

    Its not the snow, I ride in the snow. It's the SO that wants to keep the bike nice and shinny.
