As the winter approaches, I am considering purchasing a motorcycle jack/lift to raise my Fury as it's stored in my garage. I did this with my sportbikes each winter season and I am assuming it's the same for cruisers/choppers. Anyone else keeping their bike raised or is there another alternative you guys follow - or do most of you just let it sit as is.
I was always told it can lead to bubbling of the tires in the area that it's parked on. Some people move it periodically to reduce the weight in one position too I guess.

Thanks ..... Got about 4 - 6 weeks left of riding in New York.

STORAGE? Why would you store it???? RIDE IT! LOL!!!
Yeah I'd love to ride all winter. I try to get into November each year. Tonight it will drop down into the 40's. Shit - if I lived in some town named Rincon in the state of Georgia I might be rockin' it like you. LOL .... By the way, are you from Brooklyn with the Brooklynboy member name?

Lived in New York (Brooklyn) for 40 years... Had to move south to get more time in the saddle.... If it's a BAD winter down here, I might get a few (5 -10) nights when it gets down into the 40's....

Don't hate me for it.... LOL

And if you do use a motorcycle stand, don't take all the weight of the suspension...

Personally, I think you should exercise the front forks, so the seals don't dry out...

Things have changed in Brooklyn (Crooklyn) ........ Glad you made it out! LOL Enjoy your riding. I still need some advice for the stand/lift.

Take care,
Larry

I use the Pepsx stand on my VTX, haven't tried it on the Fury yet, but should work fine, I plan on pulling the wheels and final drive off this winter so my Fury will probably be on it a few monthes

LL, you would be welcome any time you are in the Land of Fruits and Nuts! Two beautiful daughters eh? You my friend are a lucky man!
Well a car does come in handy when it rains those fifteen to twenty days a year... lol
I just had a great idea -- you can park your Fury in the living room. Set up some rollers and run the pipe flumes out the window and ride all winter -- best of all you can do it in your Bugs Bunny PJ's!! :D

460,
Whats a "zuit suit?"
T
My guess would be a snow mobile suit?
My dealer will store mine for "free" if I spend $350.00 on things like parts and accessories, labor, etc. I will let them have it, so I can add extended forward controls, chrome wheels, grips and levers, and anything else that might come out and catches my eye.

I have rubber mats on my garage floor and i always park my bikes there
for the winter-no blocks,no jacks,ect.seems to do alright. We get really cold temps (50 below zero is not unheard of)for weeks at a time. I trickle charge
every couple of weeks, but this is the first winter for the Fury so time will tell

My Dad told me he once tried to ride in the snow with his Indian Chief by putting a home made ski strapped to the front tire and rapping rope around the rear tire through the spokes for traction. He said it worked fine for a mile or so before the rope broke and got into the chain
