Well I would tell ya to put a heavy coat on you and yer ride and rinse both after a ride but. Anyway, if the oil gets to freezing point it's will gather all the moister into little drops. Every time it freezes and thaws, the same thing. Then in the spring when you fire that thing up, you will have water in your oil. I guess it will depend on the humidity in the area where it is as to how much water collects. You can burn off a little by getting it hot, but all that crap will be going all over your motor. And the more there is, the worse it is. But for a couple bucks I'd say change that shiit. Idle for 25 mins??? Idle doesn't do any good. You can't reach op temp by idle and you will do more harm than good. And don't ya just cream yer jeans when a nice day comes in the mitts of winter and you hear that familiar distant sound, the roar of my V-TWIN in the distance. And I'm on that f-en thang laughen my ass off at all you fair weather fisherman wit the cold breeze hitten my knees. YYYAAAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Hey Fourhour,
"but most important to me is a bandana to keep the cold off my face."
I use a leather bandana on my face (chin) to cover my neck, top that wit a full face helmet, 2 pairs of jeans, leather and gloves and I'll ride as long as my bike keeps go-en. Got on the highway last year when it was about 25 degrees or so and after 20 mins it didn't want to go anymore. Roll the gas on and PUTT PUTT PUTT. Pulled over and I guess the rest of the engine warmed what ever froze up (maybe gas in line). She started back up, I kept on riden. Hard to straighten out yer legs to hold the bike up after that. And my big balls where the sizes of pea's, but I'll be doing it again, that for sure.
Hey how do ya get it to say that QUOTE: ORIGINALLY POSTED BY thing?

I cover my bike every night wit a old car cover my sister gave me. It's silky like and what a diff in clean up. When I did not cover her up in the garage, dust and crap would be all over it all the time. Now wit the cover it seems to stay looking bright & shiny longer. And do ya know about HAND WARMERS. The kind ya use fer hunting and outdoor stuff. You just open the package and shake. I put um all over, yep even there. Under 40 today when I left my house, put 1 in each pocket of my pants. MMMMMM nice and warm. And my junk was still a good size when I made it to work.
