Drain oil and replace with only organic vegetable oil (not synthetic, its bad for it). Don't forget to pick up the elusive Super Tech Oil Filter. If you do not follow this advice your bike will self destruct in the matter of 2 months, 1 week, and 2.35 days on the nose. :D

No but for real. Fill up the gas tank dump in some sea foam or any other stabilizer. Run it, top off tank. Lift bike, change oil and filter, fog cylinders and wait for the sun to come out. Oh yeah and a good wash and wax is always a good thing too.

Try the search button. This has been discussed in the last week or so. Lot of different opinions on what to do.

Don't forget the battery tender and put plastic bags on the exhaust with rubber bands to keep the insects/spiderwebs out.

That's the worst part. It's not just the 'cold', it's the nasty road conditions when they are covered with sand, salt, cinders, etc.

Yeah and all of our coal trucks running around you get NASTY when it gets like this outside. I am not kidding you can't ride but a few miles with out having to clean face shield/winshield.

We don't have to invent it, just patent a design that way if some one gets the idea to make it we would have the patent. :D

Yep, i ride mine till they sand and salt, then the season is done ... i have had a very poor riding season this year due to family commitments, oh well, there is always next year to look forward to.
