Should I bring my bike in from the cold ?

Hi all,


What with weather lately ( -12 last night here ), I was thinking of bringing my Triumph in from the garage and sitting it in the hallway for a week or so until the temperature raises a bit. 

Or should I leave it where it is ?. Opinions please ?

Cheers :-)

If your not using it leave it where it is,hopefully prepared for storage. Any case your house/bike insurance will be void if brought into the house.

Cover it.

There's loads of people on here with advice on spraying it with ACF50, emptying carbs and tank, take battery off etc. Dig through previous posts for more info. Personally, I've never had a problem leaving mine outside under cover. They are machines that are made for being outside so I'd try not to worry about it too much. Having said all that I wish I had a garage or a shed.

Hmm

We've just had about 8" of snow dumped on us here. I've decided to wrap the bike up even more with some old duvets. I'm going to put a low wattage heater in the garage to help the temperature.


Interesting theory about your house insurance being invalid should you have your bike inside ?... I recall I've heard this before as well. I'll see how long this cold spell is going to last I guess.... 

Thanks everyone.
