We are getting a nice bit of snow today so I thought I would try my Gear Up in the snow for the first time.

yeehaw! one of the first times I took mine out into the snow I came around a corner and slid into a brick mailbox! found out turning the front wheel is just a very small suggestion in deciding the rigs direction. That snow missed us entirely, I'm bummed.
past afflictions include TR motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65, MGs, and a Citroen.
Now a 2012 FF GU and an 87 K75s
dual K&N cones on PVC intake, 40/137.5
Raceway needles
Modtop exhaust
$29 VW Hydraulic steering dampener

Yes I learned that turning the front wheel has very little to do with witch way the bike is going to go. That's why I made a short ride. I hit a few snow banks and just missed the wife and some trees.
