Top 10 Signs Itís Time To Winterize Your Bike

Iíve often felt that the real reason many motorcyclists donít winterize their motorcycles is that they keep holding off in hopes to squeeze in one more ride. Although the MO Towers are located in Southern California, many of us ventured from colder climes to the Great American West in an effort to enjoy year-Ďround riding. The journalism gig is just something we managed to weasel our way into as a means of supporting our habit.

In an effort to help dedicated riders in places that have real winter, the following list contains sure-fire signals that it is time to winterize your motorcycle rather than continue riding it or letting it sit unprepared developing the mechanical manifestations of Parked Motorcycle Syndrome.

Thanks for the link. I never do well riding when it's 40F and below.

Never have winterized my bikes, I live in southern Indiana and you just have to wait for the roads to clear. Last time I was out it was 25 F which was OK for my Connie because she has heated grips. I ride my vulcan 800 into the mid 30's. Have fun be safe.

Not me! Cold riding, that is. Less than 40-45*F and I'd rather drive.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.
