Every time this happens.
I have shelved the motorcycle idea and as soon as I did someone reminded me of another bike. He turned me on to an Ural Patrol or an Ural Gear up.
So much for the Royal Enfield with a sidecar. These pretty much come stock with a sidecar and the sidecar wheel is a driving wheel. We're talking about a 2 wheel drive motorcycle here.
Great in the snow.
Now who in the name of Sam Hill ever heard of a motorcycle that was good in the snow?
Urals are made in Russia. Leave it to a country that couldn't even catch Rocky and Bullwinkle to come up with a motorcycle that is good in the snow.
Yet I have scouted around and found more than one person talking about using one as a 365 day a year mode of transportation. I also read where someone took one across a pass in the Cascades during a blizzard and made out OK.
I am not going to get a bike but I am going to at least check one of these out.
