Sad day..... Winterized the bike

Sorry to hear. This weekend is cold as shit, but it should be decent enough next weekend to justify putting the Under Armour cold gear stuff on under the leathers.

Same thing I do.

Jet ski I pull the battery, fog and hit all surfaces with a silicon spray. Flush it with a marine/RV anti-freeze too.

All these winterizing and putting bikes away just makes me sad... Although if we had to do it here, my bike would probably look different every season


Thanks Uncle P!

What is this winterizing you speak of?

If you have a real "tender" why not just leave it hooked up all the time? I do.

Also stick stabilizer into my tank....
