First Snow in NYC

  • We got our first snow today and I was admittedly sceptical about how my XR would handle the snow and slush on my evening commute.

    Sure—I’ve read the reviews from people saying that it scoffs at the snow. But, I’ve also read a fair share of reviews saying that it just wheel-slips endlessly.

    Well, this 6’2” 250lb guy was able to navigate the streets of NYC without issue on my stock Vega at about 15psi.

    Was the ride looser than the usual? Sure.
    Was I riding 5mph slower than usual? Definitely.

    But I can say that the XR can at least take a light snowfall.

    Float on. Stay safe.
