Well our summer seems to be coming to a screaming halt. So I thought I would start up a thread about winter storage. So I don't have a garage and this is my first winter with my bike. We don't get a lot of snow here in fact none last year but not sure how good it is for my bike to be outside covered up. First question would you store it outside covered well or rent a storage container? Other than remove the battery and fuel stabilizer any suggestions?

Put a battery tender on your battery, change oil and filter before parking for winter, make sure your coolant is up to snuff. Don't know how cold it gets where you are, but if you have no garage I would sure look into finding a secure and weather proof indoor storage location. It's just better for your bike to be inside and ideally away from rodents, pests, etc.

I ride year round now here in Texas but when I lived up in the Pacific NorthWET I left my bike outside with a cover on it for the winters. I was pretty hard on the poor thing. I would also suggest a storage place of some kind.

No garage meet the Cycleshell !

Fabulous cycleshell.

cycleshell.com

See my write up here on the forum. Was waiting for nearer to winter but went ahead and bought since rain has been a problem this summer.

No moisture ever gets to the bike. Not even morning dew. I also don't have a garage. I usually add fuel stabilizer to tank and use waterproof battery tender.
