Wait, are winterizing and storage the same thing? Do you have to prepare the bike in anyway so it runs better/safer in cooler weather?

Ah, sorry, I assumed by winterizing the poster meant putting it in storage. I'm not sure what (if anything) you really need to do to your bike if you're going to ride it year-round, other than to maybe put thinner oil in it if you live in a really cold climate.

The owner's manual will tell you what oil to use over our typical temperature range. Most likely it's still 10-40 all winter long as well as summer. Our climate isn't that harsh out here.

Of course this would be a lot easier if Antkur would come back and say something... :D

Do the motorcycle tires get really hard in the winter, like the summer tires of cars?

are there "all season" or "snow" tires for bikes?

Alright. I've been meaning to ask this question too. Having traded my car for a bike I'll be riding my bike until the Lower Mainland freezes over or Hell which ever comes first.

I do have to get my fluids changed because it's that time. Are there any other adjustments I should be doing?
