Red face The right way to winterize your bike

Yep , really! You're looking at my post as I can provide you with some advise.
I LIVE IN FL. we ride all year long around here. Still t shirt and shorts.
There you go . I rubbed it in . I feel much better now. Time for another brewski.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Hmmm, , , , some folks might have trouble commenting on your "rub" without saying something they'll regret.



My only comment is "you got NOTHING on me pal, , , I'm in California between the mountains and the oceans, , , ,best rides EVER". Not quite 365, , ,but DAM close.

Denver gets enough nice days thru the cold season that I've never bothered to "winterize", like as not will be another day in the 50's or 60's next week.... If we do get a long cold snap it's never more than a few weeks, the battery tender alone will hold things thru that.....

I just change to a lighter weight oil, use the battery tender more and keep on riding!

If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

Well, I wouldn't ride in a T-shirt and shorts anywhere, any time of the year. But, you ride your ride, and I'll ride mine. Stay safe.

The trick to riding safe in just a tee shirt and shorts is to also wear your steel-toed flip-flops.

I just moved to Southern UT from So Cal. I plan on riding all winter as long as there is no snow or ice on the roads. I was out on Sunday and it was sunny and 40 degrees. I dressed for it and had a very enjoyable ride. Heading out this morning. 32 degrees right now, heading into the 50's today.
