First real bit of snow today. Just some flurries really, but I figured it was a good time to test out little Blu. Tried the chest mount strap again, too see if it would be any better on the different bike.

Was not too cold, only around 35F, so the snow wasn’t really sticking to the road. But conditions were quite wet, and visibility was reduced a tad. Had to wipe the snow from my visor every few minutes.

The studs handled very well. I did not lose traction at any point and I was able to maintain normal operating speeds for the conditions. The video below shows some highlights from the trip. At about :40 you can hear the very unique sound my tires make with the studs installed. A quick check when I got home showed the studs to be in good condition, and none were missing.
