Lightbulb Bonneville Winter Storage

Had a scary moment the other day on my bike. Headed out to visit a freind around 9pm, all was well. On the way home at midnight some ice and frost had appeared. Very nearly lost it on a corner. Figured it was a sign that I was chancing an expensive accident so decided to put the bike away for the winter. The Winter tire law comes into effect in a couple of weeks here in Quebec so I can't legally ride it from mid December until mid March anyway.

As I don't have a garage though I'm storing it in my lounge. It was a tight fit getting the handlebars through the doorway, but just managed it.

Well played. Guessing from the last pic that there will be no mice nesting in your pipes.
