Ideas for Winter Activities for Motorcyclists

If you live in a place where the winter months get cold and snowy, you more than likely will have your bike stored away until spring. This can be a boring time for riders who are used to being out on the open road. Even if you’re bikeless for the winter, you still have options for motorcycle-related activities. Here are a few things you can do to pass the time until you and your bike are back on the road.

Shop for Bike Upgrades: If you can’t ride your bike, do the next best thing – shop for upgrades. It’s the perfect time to install new accessories and parts on your bike. It will also give you a way to pass the time if you plan on working on the bike yourself.

Upgrade Your Riding Gear: Over the holidays, there are a lot of great deals on rider gear. If you’ve been thinking of getting a new jacket, upgrading your helmet or other apparel, now is the perfect time.

Clean Your Bike: Now that your motorcycle is stored away, it’s the perfect time to clean it. Since you won’t have it out on the road, you’ll be able to clean every nook and cranny. Cleaning your motorcycle guarantees that the paint or finish won’t degrade while the bike is sitting in storage.

Look for Winter Events: Even though there aren’t a lot of bikes on the road in winter, there are still a ton of motorcycle events you can pass the time at. From custom bike shows to ice racing, there’s something for everyone. To stay up to date with the latest motorcycle events, visit our event calendar here.
