Thanks guys! One thing I’ve learned is to avoid ice unless you have the proper tires. Falling wasn’t so bad, it was trying to pick the bike up and slipping all over the place while doing so, and boy the super T is a heavy bike or maybe I need to get stronger.

I have also had to experience picking up a bike on the ice by myself, a friend actually carry’s a set of ice cleats that strap to boots for such a situation, I’ve been wanting to get a set as well but so far haven’t , hopefully your reminder will motivate me a little more. Thankfully you didn’t get hurt !
Where did you buy your windshield spoiler and what brand of windshield are you using ? Your windshield looks very similar to the VStream sport touring I’m using.

Enjoyed the video.

Tenere on packed snow is way too much of a crap shoot for me regardless of my tires. Good for you eventually getting out of that stuff.

Ice cleats sound like a good suggestion. The windshield is a Vstream Touring (largest one they sell), with the madstad bracket and an MRA windshield extender.
