    Howdy North jet,; I'm greeting u from Edmonton...Ive got a rack mount Bridgestone Titan from Island Hopper...this is my second winter that Im ridding it.

    My motorized bike is just eats right through the winter-as a matter of fact I just got back tonight from a 5 mile ride durring a snow storm.

    The secret to winter ridding is all in the tires- treads of my back tire are just like snow mobile tracks.

    Oh great!
    Pretty stormy tonight!
    Not the only one who likes MBs and winter riding! I bet that Titan is great for winter riding with the wieght on the back tire. Is it a bmx or mountain bike? Are the there any other peeps with bike motors in Edmonton? Sure be fun if there were more folks riding motorized bikes.

    The ct 90 is a natural for winter riding, but its getting long in the tooth and needs insurance and registration. Starts easy up to-20. After that I take the plug out and warm it up and squirt some gas in, finger tighten and it fires up. Run it for a couple of minutes and snugg the plug up. and away i go! I use on of those neoprene masks. When cold.

    All my bikes are mountain bikes.
