Hi KLXj0nes, I live in Quebec... So I live where the snow is made:banghead:
I can tell you that the best way to play with your bike in winter is to wait for the snow to be solid... I mean almost like ice.
Then you'll need to put studs on every knobs of your tire. Don't use metal screws because after one ride they're gonna be destroyed. You'll need real screws made for it. You'll find it in your favorite motorcycle store. It's more expensive, but you will be able to use it for the entire winter... But never go on the road. They'll be destroyed after 1 minute or 2.
If you want to play in the snow after a winter storm, you will need a kit named Attrax. You'll find a demo at: www.attrax.net
Have a nice winter
