This is called downhill biking....I guess there are many youtube videos, but you need a special bike and equipment for the falls...otherwise speed alone is a nice feeling especially if there's a lot of traffic and the tracks narrow... :wacko:

speed biking in traffic and narrow tracks <_< so who's the junkie now? But I bet you can't do it these days...like I said, nature has a way to neutralise or strike back....:lol:...

Yup that's true, either you freeze because you drive too slow or you don't freeze but fall, because of the ice... should change to a tricycle :lol:

:D...and with fur-covered upholstery and snow chains around the tyres.....and don't forget the sleigh bells too....

and some huskys for pulling... :D

but shldn't it have a german engine- you won't be needing the huskies then...a gps too- with all that snow, it's soo easy to lose orientation..not that it has ever happened to us canucks...:D...

yes they were selected out in the early years. :lol:

of course, we're well-equipped...um...I mean, well-adapted to this snowy environment...otoh, after a few rounds of heavy snowfall, you will be going around the neighborhood 10 times, before you'd eventually find your house :wacko:....not that it has ever happened to me....:P...

we can't do any of these crazy extreme snowboarding in the city, BB-san....there are a lot of these x-treme monster snow plows for clearing and collecting the snow and giant snow-blowers to move your pile of snow to the neighbor's lawn....;)...but you can probably get the adrenaline rush engaging in a fierce snowball fight....

:(.....outside, in the snow at subzero temperatures.....well, by the time he takes off his thinsulate gloves, opens his down winter coat (or is the gun tucked in his heavy winter boot), takes out the gun and removes the safety catch then removes the scarf covering half of his face and identifies himself as an off-duty cop...yup, the adrenaline would've already made three round trips in everyone's circulation..... :lol:...seriously, was this in the news, MD?

Seems so, but I guess the Mounties are cooler and more professional...hopefully

hmmm...a cop driving a hummer....I guess he didn't want his hummer pelted with snow...and the Mounties are of course much cooler and more professional but sometimes: this kind of sh*t happens and they have to answer for it..... :lol: ....excessive use of force- a real adrenaline rush, eh?

:) Definitely not worth the adrenaline rush, BB-san. Besides, if one needs crampons to walk this kind of streets or get in and out of the car, how could a two-tonne vehicle without tire chains fare any better?

OTOH, one can’t really boast of a full winter driving experience unless they’ve braved a snow storm and skidded on black ice or have done a graceful 360 degree pirouette on frozen roads. And instead of driving, I’d rather be relaxing here :):
