I am considering a new tactic for combating the winter blahs.
Rather than garaging the bike for four months during winter I want to be able to take it out once in a while on a warmer Winter day.
While it does snow occasionally in Rhode Island, the snow usually melts in a day or two. Winters in RI are usually pretty mild, wet and damp yes but hardly snows more that a few inches at a time.... I saw folks riding through much of the winter last year....why not me?

The main concern would be road salt and sand that make the roads slippery and can cause rust.>:)

Just wondering if anyone out there has advice on winter tires for the G310GS.
I would imagine the stock tires or not quite adequate. Feel free to try to talk me out of this crazy idea.

It occasionally snows here in the wintertime where I live in southern Oregon too, but I still ride whenever I can, and on the same tires that I use in the summer. That said, I won't ride over any of the nearby passes until spring, and I try not to be stupid. Just take it easy and you should be OK.
