    Where does that path lead? Maybe somewhere south...

    Winter storage thread

    I started a thread the other day regarding a couple of ideas I use for winter storage, and of all the interesting comments I was pleased to read a terrific comment by Snowbum, basically draining all the fuel out for the winter. Most of us find some "junk" in the fuel tank and draining it annually is a good idea.

    Glad you got it sorted out.

    The bike is running great now. No problem starting or running. This picture was taken this morning at -8F with a couple of inches of fresh snow last night.

    And that was some new revelation? Many have been doing this for years. The only thing I (and others) would be that you spray some sort of oil in the tank to keep ANY moisture from adhering to the insides. The oil can be easily washed out in the spring, and any residue can run through the engine and get burned.
