I have too much slushy snow to even get out of the garage... I did try to year things up some with the ATV, but still too slippery for 2 wheels:mad:

I find ice pretty sketchy on my EXR due to too much Regen braking. I wish it was lower or even non-existent in map1. There is no ability to pull the clutch and coast on super slick sections so I have found myself in the situation of having wheelspin on throttle and lock up off throttle trying desperately to hold my hand in that perfect position to coast. A couple of times I have had to hit the kill switch to get the bike back under control as that kills the Regen and lets it actually coast.

I find this exact same situation trail riding on very slippery ice or snowy conditions or on extremely muddy steep hills. It's a PITA trying to creep down a really steep muddy hill and the regen is too much then trying to add throttle to keep the rear wheel from skidding. For dry conditions it seems to work pretty good for me as is though.
