We, in my experience, here in the Denver Metro Area, don't usually get our first snow fall till about the third week in October.
Today we woke to rain which turned to wet snow. It was melting almost immediately as it hit the streets of my neighborhood but in areas with heavier snow fall, it was collecting on the road, as slush.
Needless to say, I rode out on Yoshie, my Suzuki V-Strom/Dauntless Sidecar Rig to see how she'd do in the stuff!
I layered up and rode into pretty heavy snow falling, it was melting fast but still caused me vision issues as I'd forgotten to swap in my visor with the fog shield.
Still, quite the enjoyable ride. I got onto Quincy Road and rode it out east to the road which leads one to the Youth Correctional Facility.
As you can see, not much accumulation so not much of a test of the tires and the rig itself. I am hoping more snow will come throughout the day and actually build up as snow, not slush.
I now have the fogshield visor on my helmet, a fresh coat of pledge on the outside of said visor. My cold weather gloves are drying and it's 34°F outside. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
