Salt Management!

;-)
Well it snowed a little this week and they again salted our roads. I am not worried about the pebbles and handling, but when this stuff is dry is there any risk to the bike itself? The weather will heat up a little next week and the roads should stay dry, and would like to get some riding in, but don't want the finish of the bike and rims getting messed up.
Salt "management" is a common sense issue for the most part.
So as you ask here, if you can rinse/wash the bike within a few days
or week of road salt then next to nothing is affected, relatively speaking.
Purists park their bikes. I ride mine year-round. That's what I bought
it for: not for pozing! Lol!

Meanie's own the road!

X2 on what he said. The best thing for your bike is to ride! And the best way to keep it looking brand new is to wash it!
Soap + Water + Elbow Grease = Beautiful Bike Forever:)
Hey, good to hear from your neck of the woods! Or should I write,
your section of the Asphalt?! So, how's your Meanie doing? Love mine,
big time: Consider it the Corvette of Cruisers...lol!

PS: Being new here, is there a "Meanie" Section on this blog site???
Thanks!:wink:

rust never sleeps!!!
True, yes, but again, like most things in our lives, it's mostly a
question of "management" of any given specific issue!

Experience points me in the direction of ignoring salt ramifications,
which I know about, as long as, as mentioned, I wash/hose the
bike either weekly at a minimum, or as frequently as time allows:
no damage at all then!

What is a Riding issue, is Black Ice: for that there is no substitute
solution, except awareness, care, and focused attention!
