    Well its that time to get the bike ready for the week long Winter Storage, cant wait to get back on the road. Honestly I'm from Texas and we ride year round. What is the average time your bike sits in storage?

    Depends on where you live, here in Colorado we can ride during the winter months if you're a hardy sole.

    That's a lot of down time. I think you all need to do what the winter tourists do,,get a RV and come on down y'all and ride, ride, ride...

    I live in northern Illinois and the bike gets put up from December to March depending on the salt on the roads.

    Do you all remove the battery or keep a charger on it? Never thought about the salt, that will definitely be corrosive to the bike.

    Not a charger!!!!!!!!!!!! A battery tender/maintainer that works automatically. No need to remove battery from bike, and have never done that it 30 years of riding..........
