Safely Storing Your Motorcycle in an Oregon Winter

When winter threatens Canby, OR with below-freezing temperatures and freezing precipitation, you need to bring your bike inside and park it in the garage. But wait, what if you have no garage? Will a bike cover work?

Your Home’s Garage

Oliver Insurance wants you to avoid damage to your motorcycle, so we recommend parking it in a storage facility or garage for winter. If you have a garage – attached or detached – park it inside. Double-check your garage for insulation and set up a heater if it doesn’t already receive heat from your home’s central heat and air.

Your Storage Unit

Perhaps you already rent a storage unit, or your condo association provides a storage unit for you. As long as you have a climate-controlled unit, you can safely store your bike in it for the winter. The term climate-controlled means that the storage complex heats and cools the facility. In winter, these facilities typically maintain a temperature of 56F to 66F in the interior. During the summer, they usually maintain a temperature of 70F to 80F. This offers a suitable temperature for your motorcycle to remain safe.

Rented Garage Space

You have another option, too. Rent a space in a parking garage. Although most people do this for cars or trucks, these spaces also work great for motorcycles and trikes. Choose a covered garage that’s heated.
