1 of 1

I’m just about to head off for my summer holiday and already I’m thinking of the weather turning and the nights drawing in.

I’m needing your help, tips and advice for prepping the Yamaha Fazer8 for winter riding. I usually resort to driving the car as soon as the weather changes but this year I’m planning to continue my daily commute on the bike.

Have you got one piece of kit you can’t live without or one top tip that will make winter riding more enjoyable? Send you ideas to me at (by the way you will get my out of office but I’ll reply on my return).

Thanks in advance for your help.
