1. New Tires

As the snow builds up outside and you’re spending time wrenching on your bike in the garage, take a look at the condition of your tires. If the wear bars are close to showing, now would be a good time to spoon on some new rubber. Yes, you could probably get a few more miles out of them, but losing half of a day changing tires right at the beginning of riding season seems like a fool’s economy. Plus, you’ll get to wrench more on your bike and get to visit your local bike shop to buy the tires and wait while they are mounted on your rims. Even if you change your own tires, you should still visit the shop because you never pass up on the opportunity to spend some time commiserating with fellow PMS sufferers.

How To Change Your Motorcycle Tires

When the snow melts and the new grass starts to poke its tender blades above the ground, you can charge into your riding season, knowing that nothing stands between you and amassing as many riding miles as possible while others are just beginning to shake off their winter dust.
