    Montana BMWs?

    Any sport tourers out there? Where can I buy studded snow tires? Have electric liner, need to ride!

    Ha ha ha ha! That's funny! Oh, wait, are you serious? I've chipped the ice down the long driveway to make a small path and get to the plowed road but I've never ridden with studded tires. I would say it's either sidecar rigs or small dualsport bikes that ride in these conditions.

    What frustrates me is that the road can be 90% clear of snow and ice, but that other 10% is 3-4" thick ice with a layer of water on top and strategically placed to turn a bike into a sled.
