Itís not so much a bike ban as a requirement to have winter tires.
I know they make winter tires for motorcycles donít know if thereís a size that would fit Rhonda though,  mostly they seem to be sizes for larger touring motorcycles

Ah I gotcha. that makes sense.

A friend of a friend claims that he bought winter motorcycle tires that are impregnated with ceramic material for grip on ice.

The idea sounds neat, but I haven't found anywhere that sells what he is claiming that he bought.

Toyo makes winters for cars with walnut shells in them, probably the same sort of concept

Ceramic? Silica is added in the rubber mix for winter tires in arctic conditions. Guess you can call it ceramic.. I would know, i live in that shit climate!

Silica is used in all tire compounds.  It has the amazing ability to give tire rubber low hysteresis at low frequency distortion and high hysteresis at high frequency distortion.  This is why we have tires nowadays with 80k warranties.

There are some with the proper stamp but sized for the big GS rides. Some people have bought them and are still getting pulled over and hassled. They are going to re-word the law to just ban bikes period from what I read. They really don't want bikes on the roads in winter in that province at all.

The old bill hide behind parked cars on my street with speed cameras, doling out speeding tickets to anyone doing 31kph on our 30kph street.  Judging by the look on their faces when they pull someone over you'd think they'd just thwarted the escape attempt of a major felon.

Can't see them being too friendly to a biker in winter, no matter what tires they're on.

Thereís a fellow who uses them over on the quebec m4e forum.

you can still get a ticket for reckless driving if you take it out with snow or ice on the roads, but for a feb day at +5, 6, 7, itís usually not a problem.

As long as the stamp is there.

Youíd think theyíd want lighter vehicles like motorcycles used more often here, easier on the roads. Letís face it, our roads need all the help they can get.

You'd think but QC hates motorcycles, don't know why but they do. I've been hassled there just because I had aftermarket signals on my bike, if it were QC plated they would have ticket me. Hell I don't even need signals here.
