    Default Have you winterized?

    I haven't but I think some things help with that, like heated gear.

    What say you?

    Not yet and I really wont do much. I'll add some seafoam to the tank but I usually get out once or twice a month over the winter and the bike is always on a tender anyways.

    My grandpa who keeps his bike in my garage over winter though already called it quits for the year.

    Stabil, Tender but only start if weather/salt permits a ride.
    I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.

    I will probably winterize the SuperGlide since I put it on storage only insurance. I keep the Ultra on a tender, and i will ride it when the salt is low and the roads are dry throughout the winter.
    My Favorite Rides:
    2016 Ultra Limited
    2010 Ultra Classic
    2003 Dyna SuperGlide
    1967 Bell UH-1 Iroquois(Huey)



    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    I put the Buell up for the winter. Fresh oil, gas (with stabil), tender and up on stands with a loose dust cover.

    The Sporty got an oil change too, but 'cause it was due. I will start to treat the gas just in case it has to stay in the garage longer than I like, but I have ridden a lot the last couple of winters. I keep it on the tender all year unless I am riding it to work. Sometimes it sits more in the summer than the winter having two bikes.

    Like most of the other posters, I pretty much get out once or twice a month all winter... Of course this appears to be a big bad winter coming up. A touch of Stabill and the Tender and its all good.

    Yeah, this.

    Even if you didnt get out 1x/mo, a bike sitting for three or four months really doesnt require mothballing.
