For those of us that live up north, ol' man winter is on his way. I particularly want to know about synth. oils in the winter. I know how to winterize my bikes, but synth. oil is new to me. I'll be changing it this weekend. After I let it sit all winter, does it deteriorate like dino oil? I change the dino oil in my Shadow in the fall and then again in the spring before I run it even though it's essentially new. I know there will be moisture in the oil, but that will burn off when the bike gets to op. temp. right? Can I just run the synth. in the spring or should I just change it?

For those of you with an alarm... I usually remove the batteries from my toys and keep them in the basement during the winter months. (No garage)This way they don't freeze and I can trickle charge them. Should I leave it in and just run it from time to time? I won't actually get to ride untill AFTER the first good rain in the spring, they use way too much salt up here. It'll have to idle for 15 or 20 minutes. Whaddya think?

:D HAAAAAaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa....

I was gonna ask ya if ya had just left the pub !!! Funny how I understood that as drunkspeak:D

Now, could someone answer my question? As I said they put down too much salt here in the winter. If you live up here you know what it does to a car. I'm not going to do that to my bike. I ride up 'till the first layer of salt, then I'm done. Besides, why do you think I keep the Shadow around?
