Hello Iowegians! My wife and I are planning on moving back up north, and towards the Iowa City area. She really wants to be closer to her Minnesota family, and I am looking at doing postgraduate studies at U of I.
I lived in Iowa City about 15 years ago, but I wasn't into riding then. So, my question to you guys is this, what do you do during the winter months? I ride year round down here in Central Texas, and I am pretty sure that ain't gonna happen up there!
We're still planning a year or so out, so there's no hurry. But some pointers would be great so I can start planning for how to take care of my machine when storing it.
I own an '07 R12R, very high mileage (over 161k), and was wondering if storage during the winter months was going to be real hard on the bike. I thought I'd turn to you professional winter weather riders to send me some knowledge on how to handle the storing, the battery and fluids, etc.
