For some riders, December 1st is the cutoff date for the riding season. While others will battle the cold and wind during January and February, many consider winter to be off-season.
If you plan on waiting for the return of warm weather before riding again, you have a decision to make regarding bike storage. Unless you have a garage or basement with room for your cruiser or street bike, you’ll have to find a way to keep your bike safe from the hazards of winter weather.
Here are a few ideas for motorcycle storage this winter.
It can be costly, but a covered garage space is ideal. Winter in Connecticut often includes blizzards, ice and sleet storms and heavy winds that can harm your motorcycle. With a reserved spot in a well-maintained and secure parking garage, your bike will be protected from the elements.
If a garage is too expensive or not available in your area, another solid option is an all-weather motorcycle cover. These durable covers are often made of heavy duty polyethylene and are resistant to wet weather conditions. Available in several sizes, these covers can be used when blizzard warnings arise in the forecast and easily removed if you feel like revving the engine when the first warm day arrives.
