Motorcyclists living in colder climates generally refrain from riding during the winter months. In the event that a bike needs to be stored for an extended period of time, particularly due to extreme weather, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, the bike should be kept in a dry location that is both heated and well ventilated. Limited exposure to the elements is ideal.

After settling on a place to store the motorcycle, the rider must prepare the bike for storage. A rider should first put new oil in the vehicle and run the engine to circulate oil. Riders should also apply lubrication wherever necessary, such as the various cables and the chain. Additional preparation steps include removing the battery, filling the gas tank and fuel stabilizer levels, and optimizing tire pressure. If applicable, motorcyclists should drain their carburetors. Riders can finalize preparations with a thorough cleaning and waxing.
