New Utah rider.

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 2015 FZ-07 as my first bike and I'm hooked!!
 
Being a new rider I'd love to hear some tips on regular maintenance type things that I should be doing. Being in northern Utah it will be snowing in a month. How should I go about storing my bike for the winter? What should I do to the bike? Suggestions on where to put the bike?
 
Pretty much any tips are welcome being a novice...
 
I'd love to hear from some people. Thanks!
 
Here's a pic from my ride today up Guardsman Pass. Can't complain when this is 20 minutes away....

Welcome! I live in CA but hubs and I are in Perry, UT with our bikes. Utah is a beautiful state! We are riding to Bear Lake today.
 
I don't have any tips, our chains already have some rust.

There are several of us Utah riders on here. I'm down in Orem. Guardsman is really pretty right now, I agree!
 
I have ridden pretty much every month of the year here. When we get a nice sunny day during the winter with ice free roads....bundle up and ride! :)

Welcome! Beautiful photo! You can add the images in here instead of via a link.
 
Anyway, check our the search and look under something like "Winterize your bike"
 
I like in CA, so I don't have to do that... haha.
 
But just keep searching under maintenance stuff. There are tons of threads. Learn to clean, lube, and adjust your chain... That's pretty basic.
