The first thing you should do is lose the goofy rim stripes. Then fill your tank, and add 2 1/2 oz of Stabil, and run the bike for 5 minutes to get in the injectors. Put clean oil in it, and put the battery on a tender. And your good until spring.

Keep the rim stripes :-D

I want a house big enough to keep my motorcycle in.

I remember seein' a pitcher o' some dude who had a Ducati over his mantle. Now that's some money.

So what have you been up to? Practicin' wheelies on a snowmobile? Haven't heard from you in a while.

Pulled the battery out, put stabil in and ran it, and then drained all of the gas out of the tank, and then changed the oil. I've got a 69 AMX I have had for 15 years and go through the same thing every year.... Unfortunately I know how to store my toys :(

I would just keep it in the garage next to that lovely mustang and ride it once a week on the driveway and street.

Just kidding man. You can always tell the single guy, right? :razz:

Before I moved to SC I interviewed with Mercury Marine in Fondulac WI. It was 20 degrees below zero. The next day I flew to Greenville SC and it was 50 degrees above zero with mountains. Not a difficult choice.

What is that white stuff all over your living area?

I like rim strips too. Keep em.

Does anybody remember Zach Reynolds? The RJ Reynolds tobacco heir. He had a fuel dragster H-D in his mansion's entrance foyer and a Vincent in the fireplace pls a bunch of really trick bikes all over the house. He also had a torture chamber in there somewhere. I met him at Daytona one time many years ago and he was riding a personalized Kaw 1000 I think. When you hav eth ebucks you can do whatever you want!

I'm so jealous! But you must have a lot of faith in that kickstand :)

A question: if I leave my black S3 in a dark, cold garage from Oct to Apr (necessary in these parts), when I uncover it will it have lost its tan and turned white?
