    Hey guys,

    Winter is fast aproaching in the land of oz, and I was wondering if anyone had any winterization tips?

    I've been noticing especially on very cold mornings its been having some difficulty starting- anything I can do to help this? I was thinking about oil and spark plugs specifically, no idea if that is related.

    What about waterproofing? anything I need to look out for for the occasional drop of rain? Can't think of anything worse than getting stuck in a rain storm and breaking down.

    Anything else you guys have experienced in your winter riding!
