Been almost a month!!!!!

It's been about 4 weeks since my bike has been used. I didn't store the bike to sit around in my garage I just haven't been able to use it cause of this crazy Texas weather.. its 34 F nowadays...my question is.. can I fire it up for couple of minutes to keep it alive or it ain't good for it?
I can't wait till it warms up man its killin me!!!!

It's not good for it. Don't start it unless you're going to ride it for a while. The battery doesn't charge unless it's at 3500+ rpms anyway.

Yup, and the condensation won't burn off unless you run it for awhile at operating temperature.

Re: Been almost a month!!!!!

because I know whereof jamil speaks!

The best thing you can do is purchase a Battery Tender and don't worry about the rest.

I have -9*F with wind chill -30*F right now. Do you even have windchill in Texas????

Yeah I saw that on the news this AM. My ex wanted me to come up there. All I could was.... The fact that I was standin' in shorts on my back deck drinking a cold one didn't help the situation any. Oh well...

Re: Been almost a month!!!!!

Kahrma dude! That's all I have to say. You never know. The next Ice Age may happen next week or next year on your back porch!

Be afraid...be very afraid....
because when I retire, I'm going to be your next door neighbor...










j/k a kidder. When I have perfect riding weather, you can't go outside without a respirator and airconditioning! It's so hot that your butt in your shorts sounds like sizzling bacon on Sunday morning when you hit the seat. You pray for something you've only heard about on the internet called 'wind chill'. You have to keep an eye on the bike temp and suck water from your camelback that is warmer than body temp. You have to buy touring tires because the road temp melts them to where they are equivalent to regular street/track DOTS.

And...YOUR AIRCONDITIONING utility bill each month sucks!!!!!

Right?

Re: Been almost a month!!!!!

Stop being so weak. Get that bike out and take it around the block. There's no reason to let the fuel gel in the lines.

I've been riding all year in GA. We've had some cold days, but hey, it's better sometimes to keep warm than have to continuously wring the sweat out of your clothes.

In fact, I rode all day yesterday as well as last night. Bring on the weather.

Again - I'll ride in the cold, and I'll ride in the rain, I just don't like to ride in cold rain.

Re: Been almost a month!!!!!

Hell, the weather here has been so screwed up it isn't funny. It was 71 on Thursday, almost 60 yeaterday and we have about 3 inches of snow in my front yard right now with snow expected for the next two days... And then back in the 50's by Tuesday... I luckily haven't had to let the bike sit for more than 2-3 weeks all winter before a nice day peeked out but I haven't been riding to work in the 20's-30's as much as I used to this year...

I just want summer to get here. if it wasn't for fukkin hurricanes(and their flat straight boring roads) I would move to Southern Florida.

Re: Been almost a month!!!!!

Here's me crying you a river

Just kidding, if it got back to 39 and theroads cleared I'd be out on my old 500 in a minute.

Heres me hoping its only another 2 months before I can ride again.
