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

What is winterizing thing. I guess it is the difference where I can't ride in the summer because it is 110 here it is in the mid 80 to 90 for the week.

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

Also stick stabilizer into my tank....
