Took a video near my house around Yankee Springs/Gun Lake. Beautiful area.

I've been down that way lately checking out houses for sale. Found some nice roads while I was at it.

Midland here.
 
Question: This is my first bike, and I was wondering is there anything I should be doing for my bike when storing it for the winter - battery tender, etc.? Any info or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Best thing is a garage or storage unit, cover bike with blanket to keep dust off, I plug the exhaust with old shop rag and pull the seat to plug the airbox intake, fresh oil change if you want, I try to keep a full tank of gas with some fuel stabilizer, take the battery out and store it inside your house, chain is coated with chain wax at the last moment..some ppl use bike stands or place carpet under tires for what ever reason they think the cold concrete is gonna make the tires unusable (?)after winter storage...and if you have plans for mods or suspension upgrades do them just as winter hits or you are gonna get stressed out if you wait till last min to do mods or suspension upgrades ( Feb thru may/June is a super super busy time to try to get suspension upgrades done, just a fair warning)....

Put a few hundred miles on the bike this past week around Yankee Springs and NE of grand rapids. Roads were reasonably clean and it feels great to ride in February. Passed a few fz's, any of you been riding in the West Michigan area?

I took mine to work one day this last week, from Hastings area to GR via M37.  The weekend before I took it in to Hastings to grab a sandwich.

Every time I commute to work i put on 120 miles. I work in Dearborn. Road to work twice last week. All in all, I bought my fz-07 on March 8th and now I have 11,000+ miles on it.
 
On another note, I just got back from a trip to Texas (trailered down there 25.5 hrs.) where me and 7 others rode 750 miles over two days, which included the Three Sisters.

Nope, but my power just came on from being out since yesterday morning, so that's cool.

That sucks! I was lucky and didn't lose power at all. Some people are supposed to be out until Sunday or Monday....

Haha that's a throwback to the days when writing that was enough to shield you from the police when filming yourself breaking traffic laws.

Also if anyone is interested Fox Powersports just opened registration for their customer trackdays at Grattan and gingerman. I signed up for both. I've driven thousands of laps at both tracks in cars, but never on a bike. Extremely excited, I'll probably have a dedicated track bike soon lol

Gotcha. Lol I almost left some nasty youtube comment for hijacking a video and then giving false info in the description, but then I saw the username was the same as yours.
