Excellent article. I've had my 1996 GL1500 SE for 14 years and have never seen the steps laid out so succinctly. I have done many of the things listed to do and some of the things listed as definitely not to do! Thanks for the great advice.

I just winterized my 2014 Valkyrie 1800. Changed oil, Filter and rear drive fluid. Also air up tires and filled tank with non Ethanol 91 octane fuel and treated it.
Then it goes in the shed and into it's pup tent. I bought a storage tent from Pep Boys a couple of years ago for less than $100.00. It has a vinyl florr and a soft cotton upper. I put desicant that you can buy at Dollar tree and check it after a month. If there is any water in the cup put a new on in.
Best part is if you put it away clean and dry it will be the same in the spring.
