Thats just poor clothing choice ....
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,

Not sure if that was a great bit riding or just f*g crazy? Just sat watching it gave me the eebie jeebies :lol:
I would say it's not as bad/difficult as people make out, but there are plenty who make a right pig's ear of it so.. I guess it's up to the rider? Having a small light bike really helps too, I wouldn't even try on the K100 or the TRX.

My NC has a kerb weight of 220Kg. I wouldn't fancy picking that up in the snow. When you lost steering in the video, I've had moments like that in the past, which luckily didn't come to grief, but still a butt clenching moment. :lol:

Glad to see 'nearly', It doesn't look it, but it's a hefty bit of kit for it's size.

Too many to list. All pale into insignificance compared to the joy of being on two wheels.

Merry Christmas, you lot :cheers:
