I'm in Maine and it seems to snow every day. I keep my bikes in a heated garage now, so I just charge the battery, stabilize the gas, clean and cover. I rely on snowmobiling to satisfy my urge to ride. The big issue in the spring is not the cold but the sand that's still on the roads. Picture this. The roads all have atleast 1/4 inch of sand and the only bare spots are where the cagers' tires go through it. Corners are worse because that's where they put the most sand. Alot of riders go down in the spring here not because they are rusty from sitting all winter but because the roads still suck. Its usually Memorial Day before they are really good.
Anyone going to the Vanson Open House this spring?
