When do you start getting your SSR ready for winter storage?

I usually start in November.

How many of you drive it all year round? (Californians don't have to participate) :)

First part of November sounds about right. It won't be out"playing" in the snow.

As it happens, my license tags expire in November and my insurance renewal is October 31st, so she's off the road from then until May 1st.

C'mon Down

Instead of storing it for the winter, just bring it to Phoenix.

My wife and I use ours to carpool back and forth to work daily. This is the first week that we have actually been able to enjoy the afternoon drive home topless without roasting.

I expect to put about 1500 miles per month on ours between now and the first of May. Between May and September, our Tahoe has the dual a/c and is the ride of choice for commuting.

I'm still trying to find a way to be in the northern tier in the summer and the southwest in the winter............ and have a job too.

If you are planning a trip to Phoenix, let me know........ I'll throw some steaks and shrimp on the BBQ.

A little Motorcycle trick, when you let your insurance go for those winter months make sure you don't cancel the whole policy because if not you won't be insured for theft or fire or accidents that may happen inside the garage provided that's where it will be kept. I know too many Harley budies that don't insure during winter months and have had them stolen, or otherwise damaged inside there own garage only to find themseklves uninsured.

Me, I'm in Phoenix so we have 350 severly sunny days a year, this here is top down season in the Valley of the Sun.

I bought mine the 8th of November, last year, and drove it daily until I could start alternating with my motorcycle. Most generally doesn't sit for more than three days at a time during summer, but will definitly be driven all winter, again.

I have to get approval from GMAC before putting it in storage for the winter months. My AAA insurance then decreases to storage for the months dropping the payment down for the months it's put away. I have fire and theft at that point.

I have talked to some of the other texans, and you can store you SSR's in North Texas. We promise to watch out after them and to take them out from time to time to make sure the oil is moved around the parts, and the gas, does not become stagnant. not to mention blowing out that excess carbon build up.

The people in texas, stepped up when it came to taking in evacuees from Louisiana, and we are willing to step up for all those who want to be able to store their SSR's in a healthy condition.

I am sure the rest of the Texans will agree, " When it comes to taking care of people and things, we pull out all the stops." :thumbs :flag
