Thumbs down Winter is coming...

Well. Its the middle of Nov and I finally decided to put the Duke away here in PA.
I cleaned her up nice.
Added fuel stabilizer.
Filled up the tank.
Plugged in the Battery Tender and covered her up in the garage. I'm hoping that it won't be too long until I can ride again and if there is a freak day or warmth you better believe I'll break her out for a run.

Just remember that part of proper winter storage is to sit on the bike at least once a week and make vroom vroom noises. It helps it stay in good running condition.

Only a motorcycle rider can understand why a dog sticks his head out of the window.

Oil was changed recently. I didn't count it as part of my "winterizing"
