Iíve often felt that the real reason many motorcyclists donít winterize their motorcycles is that they keep holding off in hopes to squeeze in one more ride. Although the MO Towers are located in Southern California, many of us ventured from colder climes to the Great American West in an effort to enjoy year-Ďround riding. The journalism gig is just something we managed to weasel our way into as a means of supporting our habit.
In an effort to help dedicated riders in places that have real winter, the following list contains sure-fire signals that it is time to winterize your motorcycle rather than continue riding it or letting it sit unprepared developing the mechanical manifestations of Parked Motorcycle Syndrome.
I must say, I'm one of the hold outs. Maybe this weekend I'll give in.

You guys be quiet with your nice year round weather. It's crappy cold rain here in the Seattle area.
But when I was young down in Southern California that was fine ridin'. And the pretty young blond beach bunnies.
Never mind !
