We in Kalamazoo gotten wicked lake-effect blizzards twice already. And we have at least three people still riding around in town. I just dug mine out of more than two inches of snow ... literaly. It snowed for more than 24 hrs and dropped more than two inches. My moped was inside a huge snowball from the snow and drift. I rode out in totally horrible road conditions just to get a cup of coffee. It's awesome.
I also use my feet like skiis and wear tons of stuff to bundle up. But it's all worth it. I love it and love the reaction from incredulous passersby and friends.
You know .... I think someone should find a way to get small skiis and fix them to the back wheel like training wheels. That would be so awesome for snow!
