First let me say I'm 55 years old and I'm a new Fat Bob owner. Had a couple bikes years ago and now the kids are gone, it was time to buy a new one. Back 30 years ago, I didn't care about winter care for my bike. Being honest, I don't remember what I did. First, I read were THE TENDER is what I should use to keep a charge on the bike during the winter. THE TENDER will NOT over charge the bike. Second, what is the best way to do this. If I'm not going to ride from November til say March or April, should I remove the battery or just put the charger on it. Thirdly, do I have to remove the seat to get the battery out or just the side cover. Also, any and all recommendations about winterizing your bike would be appricated greatly. I'd love to here what others do. I live in Michigan so our winters run from November til April.
