Antifreeze

It's getting to be that time of year.
So don't forget to check, add or renew the stuff if your bike has water cooling and is kept in a susceptible area of frost.
That would be a real pisser of an expensive mistake with the double kicker of knowing you only had yourself to blame.

And just because the guy you recently bought it off says its just been done does not mean it actually has. Check.!

I once had a Mini that didn't have enough antifreeze in and the water froze, fortunately it only popped a core plug out but still had me off the road for a few days whilst I sorted it out.

Another reason to buy a boxer engined bike before BMW wreck things with the new air/water cooled R12GS next year!

My tip would be to just move somewhere where there is never any frost.
