    Exactly. That stuff is really tough for me too. Big (>≈10 inches) and long piles of slush will take the momentum out too. Also, I rarely go out when wind gusts are >50 km/h.

    When I feel like a sweat I either go ride hard or have Da Bomb Ground Zero. Like mconlonx says, powerful stuff.

    I have about 2500 km with the new version of the headlamp and 500 km with the new version of the tail light and both are working as they should. Just a little rain--no snow yet.

    On long rides I send my course to my kids, tell them what time I should be back and use the "One Touch Location" Android app to publish my location to a web page every 10 minutes.

    The older version -- or rather, what I surmise to be an older version -- of the light I replaced had the same connectors as the new one. Maybe you have an even older version.

    From the light's packaging: "Connection of the ground cable is necessary, because the screw studs provide no ground connection."

    We already have rules to guide us on this issue. The first one that comes to mind is rule #25 and then, to determine total costs, we have rule #12.

    53 m/h (85 km/h) for me.

    I never consider myself safe at that sort of speed and can't say I stay psyched for very long.

    +1 on tubelesse tires, which I've been using for a few years for long distances. Way better than anything else. Less flats and 10-15 PSI lower pressure on 25cc so big difference in comfort, but...
