Winter Tips: How to Winterize and Store a Motorcycle

Well, it’s quickly becoming that time of year. You know what I’m talking about: winter: and I know most of you want to try and turn a blind eye to it. But pretending that it’s not coming is not actually going to prevent it from happening. While there are some lucky riders in some lucky states that won’t have to deal with this heartache, most of you know it all too well.

For some, winter means getting your fill during Thanksgiving, planning fun holiday trips with the family, and listening to catchy Christmas tunes on repeat while riding on your iron horse. It means more crisp weather and beautiful landscapes. But, for others, winter means end-of-the-world snowstorms, icy roads, and a coldness that will give your frostbite in five minutes.

While you might argue otherwise, riding a motorcycle in winter isn’t the best decision for most of you, and it's definitely not the best thing for your bike. Rust is the mortal enemy of a motorcycle, and winter is full of opportunities for it to wreak havoc on your bike. Your priority right now should be correct motorcycle storage, so that when you can finally bring your bike back out to ride, it’s ready to roll.

Here’s a video on how to winterize a motorcycle, and how to store your motorcycle for winter. I know, I know, you’re not happy having to think about putting your motorcycle into hibernation, but some good things must come to an end. So, in order to make sure our bike is ready for warm-weather riding, let's do this the right way!
