I am not an all year round rider. But, riding in Utah may come to a close for me on Sunday so mid or late October usually! Though I will pull the bike out on clear roads and +50 degrees in Nov and a freaky Dec and Feb. in Utah. If wrapping up the season I fill the tank to full, Put the bike on the center stand, disconnect the battery and only reconnect to fire up twice a month in winter to charge. When does everyone else put the bike to bed and what do you do to say winterize it?
