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
