Default Winter Is Coming

Change your oil
Put your tires up on blocks of wood
Fill gas as full as possible
Clean bike
Hook up battery tender
Put cover on bike that breathes
Do Nut Run Bike unless your going for hundred mile ride
Give it a kiss good bye till spring

Let's not forget to put stabilizer of some kind in the tank when you fill up.

Fall checklist:
Do I know what I did with my jacket liner? Is it cleaned and ready for another season?
Are my gloves still in good shape?
How badly worn are the lined jeans?
Are the seat and grip heaters still working?
What did you do with that cover? You will need to find it before a snowstorm.
Are your boots going to be OK for another season?
Where did you put the scarf that keeps air from blowing up under your helmet?
