Haven't been on in a couple days, so haven't posted about it, but did my first riding in snow/ice a couple days ago. Especially with it being pre-dawn riding (my normal), it was incredibly peaceful and quite for much of the ride. Lots of fun (at least until the cold fingers set in, and even that wasn't terrible).
No particular point, just thought I'd share. Well, and say thanks for the odd bits of preparatory information I've quietly gleaned here (the most important being the pointers I've seen to info about studded tires).
