End of season? WTF? We've got plenty of time left, don't we?


I plan to avoid the question of winterizing altogether - sure, it won't be my daily commuter in January, but as long as I can get it out every couple weeks, I should be good. Who says you can't ride in the winter?

The key to successful winter riding: Pam cooking spray. Liberally cover everything that might rust/corrode/oxidize before you go riding (obviously keep it away from tires). It's really great for motors since it was designed for high heat applications (duh!)
I coated my K bike's motor last winter and the shit works. Had salt streaks running down the sides of the bike, but the metal bits didn't rust.
Only downside: will give off the odor of a hot pan when the motor's warmed up....

Ok, I've been thinking about it all day and I just now realized it was a SQUIRREL.

I couldn't come up with a substitute for squire that made sense. I was seriously wondering how one would kill a squire in this day and age.
