Agreed; my old 550 with snow tires could go just about anywhere in the Montana winter. Last year we did a 750 ED in December/January with Jon's snow rubber and I was amazed how much traction we had, including trips through the alps and ski locations. No problem with real winter tires.

UPDATE: Clear skies this morning... the efficient München road crews worked their magic with salt and plows overnight; the roads are clear
'18 440xi Vert Individual - ED #17 planned for 10-28-17
'16 550xi - alpine white over Amaro brown • every freaking option
'11 Z4 - mojave over beige • 6 speed manual • Münich delivery

...and a bunch of old English motorcycles
