    do i have to put my bike away in winter

    Post  sugarbear on Fri Nov 27, 2009 1:33 am

    Hey people, I haven't been riding my r6 lately. And winter is here it does get very cold here in wales, well maybe during end of December and start of jan or sometimes. Can I just leave my bike outside under the porch covered ? or do I have to keep it in a shed or something. I can take it to this little shed I have but it's 10 mins drive from my home and I think the bike is more secure outside my house than inside that shed.
    Can leaving a bike outside fully covered damage it somehow?
    Also..
    Do you guys ride during the winter?

    HOWDY DOODY " SUGARBEAR " .. if ya gonna store it over winter ( and ya wanna leave it at your house , locked & covered with a QUALITY cover ) use liberal amounts of ACF50 , on fairings , frame , well EVERYTHING really . lasts for abserlute AGES ( will remain on even after a wash ) designed for the aircraft industry ( jet fighters and stuff ) ya cant go wrong . EXPENSIVE for sure , but BY FAR the BEST .
