As the chill of winter blankets Oklahoma, it's essential to think about your Harley-Davidson's wellbeing. At Myers-Duren Harley-Davidson, we understand the bond between you and your motorcycle, and we're here to guide you through winterizing your beloved Harley.
Resist the Urge: Why Starting Your Harley in Winter Isn't Ideal
It's tempting to hear your Harley's engine roar during the colder months, but this could be detrimental to your bike's health:
Moisture Risks: Just like how a snowman doesn't fare well indoors, starting your Harley in the cold can lead to moisture buildup. This unwanted moisture can cause rust and damage to your bike’s chrome and paint, compromising its integrity and appearance.
Battery Care Misconceptions: A common misconception is that a quick start will keep your Harley's battery charged. However, for a healthy battery, your bike needs more than a short engine run. Idle starts can deplete the battery's charge, reducing its lifespan and performance.

To keep your Harley in prime condition, consider the Harley-Davidson Battery Tender, available at Myers-Duren Harley-Davidson. This tool is essential for maintaining your battery's charge throughout the winter, ensuring your bike is ready for the first ride of spring.
