What Bikers Can Do In The Winter


During the winter months, motorcycle riders who live in colder climates will more than likely store their bikes for the season. Unlike motorists who live in warmer climates, riders who live in colder temperatures don't have the luxury of riding their bike year-round. However, that doesn't mean those specific individuals can't engage and be active within the motorcycle community during those months. While riders can choose to ride their bike in the wintertime, there are other various options to choose from as well. Below are different ways for riders to stay active during the winter months. 


  1. Upgrade Your Bike: The closest you can come to riding your bike is to upgrade you bike. Upgrading your bike over the winter months is a great way to not only pass the time, but also ensures you will be ready to hit the road as soon as spring comes back around.
  2. Subscribe To A Motorcycle Newsletter: Joining a motorcycle newsletter is a great way to stay connected to the community, while staying updated on the latest news and events. They can provide many benefits for riders, such as tips relevant to your interests, changes to regulations and even future events. Hupy and Abraham has it's own motorcycle newsletter that provides all of the above! Click HERE to subscribe now.
  3. Upgrade Your Closet: Similar to upgrading your bike over the winter, why not upgrade your closet gear as well? With the holidays in full effect during the winter months, spoiling yourself with new equipment isn't such a bad idea for when you're eventually back on the road again.
  4. Clean Your Bike: There's nothing like a spick-and-span bike. Cleaning your motorcycle periodically throughout winter is not only essential for upkeep, it is also a great way to stay actively working on your bike.
  5. Ride: For those who can't resist the urge to wait until winter passes for motorcycle season, there is the option of riding in the winter. While this is possible, riding in the winter is more dangerous and should be considered with extra caution. Research weather conditions, having the proper gear and making sure your bike is winter-ready will ensure an enjoyable ride. 


While motorcycle riding isn't as prevalent in the winter, the above tips can help you stay involved with everything that revolves around being an active rider through the winter seasons.
