Concerned about a bike sitting that long. How do dealers ensure engine reliability?
The only thing I would warn you of is the tires. They are already 3 years old so you might be tempted to push them in a couple of years when they might still look like they have plenty of tread. But change them anyway. Don’t push it. That’s if you don’t wear them out before then. Other than that, go for it.
I'm with there Mike. But I read over and over where for some people a long ride is 20 miles. And there normal ride is less than 5 miles. I almost get that many just getting to paved roads. This time of year it takes 20 miles before the tires are warm enough to really work as designed.I’m so used to riding a zillion miles a year that I never even think about old tires.
I do. I have a friend that has TWO Goldwings. I don't think he's put 1000 miles on either of themDon't know any riders that consider 20 miles a solid ride for the day, certainly not 5 miles. Must grow then different in Texas. I do know guys that only 2 or 3 days a week and usually the weather here has much to do with it.. 5 miles, really?!?!
