In Chicago, we ride for as long as we can. Due to the damage salt can do to a bike and the danger frozen roads pose, we tend to tuck our sassy rides away as soon as it starts to snow. Depending on your tolerance for cold, you can ride somewhere from March 1st all the way through the first weekend of Dec (the Toys for Tots Ride). When it’s time to put your ride to bed, you can sometimes pay a flat rate to your mechanic for basic winterizing and winter storage. Motorcycle Mania offers this service. Visit their site here.
