I live in Georgia, so when it's around that time of the year, I do not ride for safety reasons. Right before winter arrives, I make sure I complete a few things to my bike to assure it'll be in full working condition when spring time come's around. The first thing I do, and the most important thing that can be done, is to drain out all of your bikes fluids, such as the gasoline, oil, radiator fluid, and any other fluids your bike may have inside of it. Another thing I like to do, is give it one last, good wash. After all that if finished, I'll cover it up with my motorcycle cover and store it in my garage where it'll be safe from the harsh, winter conditions, except for the coldness.
