    Winter bike storage?

    So its starting to get cold here in MI and I dont plan riding much in the winter.

    What does everyone do with there bikes if they dont use it over the winter?

    Empty sealant out of tires?
    Take them inside?

    I ride my bike hard even during the winter months.

    I think you are fine. The stans will evaporate out slower in the winter months than the summer months. I think just keeping it out of the elements and above freezing and you are good to go.

    My bikes Stay inside all year but if you have the room to spare I would definitely bring it in for the winter. The cold and dampness of winter plays hell on stuff. If I had the room my Harley would come on for the winter as well. I have considered installing a larger back door just for that

    I keep all min inside all the time, I don't need them stolen. The winter is the upgrade season, time to strip them down, clean, upgrade and what not. You need to have a winter beater so the good bikes see no salt. I was thinking of getting a fat tire for the winter but I just ordered a new 2014 29er FS so I am not sure if I can aford both this year.
