Bikes in the wet

#1 Post by Ron LaDow » Sun Nov 05, 2017 1:26 am

For those of you who ride or used to, I'm going to bet that you will find this amazing. And I rode in the SNOW one winter when I didn't have a 4-wheel conveyance:

I was never that good but I did deliver my Yamaha Big Bear Scrambler to the new owner in 4 inches of wet heavy spring snow. May in North Dakota so that happened sometimes.

Hi Ron,
Nice video but just a little wimpy. Here is a whole other level of wet riding by the best in the world.

Too bad the Yamahas have had big traction problems in the wet this year so that Rossi can't play in the front in slippery conditions. Next year!
