To ride or not to ride. In the colder months, that is the question.
Traditionally, in regions where the winter thermometer dips below freezing, many riders would prep and store their motorcycles, not wanting to brave sub-zero wind chill.
That made a lot of sense in times past, but now more than ever, a plethora of winter riding suits, windproof gloves, headgear – and best of all: electrically heated head-to-toe gear – can make cold weather riding a do-able proposition.
On the other hand, if you don't want to go through the effort, that's fine, too. Perhaps you're already sure the cold season is better spent doing something else.
In this case you'll want to properly put away your bike so it's ready when you are come spring.
Since either riding or not in cold months is now a more viable choice than ever, we'll give you some pointers for which ever way you decide to go.
