Useful and informative article. I've never changed the oil unless it were due but I may this year?

I've done the same store in the garage for the winter routine for over 35 years.....one last wash and wax, top off tank, a splash of star tron in the tank, trickle charger, cover and viola! I'm screwed for 4-5 months......

OR -
You can always come out this way and check out my little slice of paradise. This time of the year is cold for us but it's probably like a spring day to anyone that gets snow or ice.

The west coast is the best coast. :icon_mrgreen:

NO Hurricanes out here!!

Well Eddie,
winter is when the sun heads south and the northern part of the world experiences what happens as a result... Think Polar Bears.... um, better think quick tho - I hear they might not be around for much longer... maybe this... think Ice Road Truckers - yeah, they'll outlast the polar bears no problem...Hahaha

Anyway, so, back to winter. Since there is no more sun's heat the landscape freezes over and rain turns into snow. For those in the snow belt, several feet at once is a common occurrence. We all know that motorcycles need to have pavement contact to work as designed. So those souls with motorcycles in the winter must - winterize their bikes. So sad.... :icon_bang:

As for lucky fellows like us - we enjoy the sun year round so winterizing is something we only have to hear about... kinda of like polar bears... :icon_mrgreen:

Okay back to riding, later. :icon_laughing:

Hey now EddieB!

Its this way crappy thing that occurs in a 4-5 month regular cycle bringing marginally and at times unsafe motorcycle riding roads. If you have an old motorcycle its a great time to refurb for the next season?
