Winter Storage 2011

Posted on 18 Oct 2011 in Shop News, Specials | 0 comments

With highs struggling to edge into the 50s, it’s hard not to feel fatalistic about the Minnesota winter. It’s coming. There’s no stopping it. We’re headed away from the sun at some tangential portion of 66,000 mph. So while riding season isn’t over yet, it’s drying up quick. That has us thinking about the exciting prospect of winter projects, and the boring necessity of winter storage. As of this week, we’re taking in motorcycles, scooters and mopeds for winter storage here at BlueCat Motors, all for only $300.

Here’s what you get for $300:

  • Climate-controlled, secure storage for your machine
  • Full winterization — keep those carbs clean, gas stable and the battery tended
  • Free oil change, including filter and oil (additional charge for synthetic oil)
  • Free spring inspection and check ride to make sure your bike is safe and ready to go

Pick up or drop off services are also available for $89/trip.

So why winter storage?
It’s not just about space. Sure, having more room in your garage for your winter projects is a great thing, but it’s more than that. Without proper winterization, any carbureted two-wheeler can go from perfect running order to running like crap just from sitting over the winter. Bad gas falls apart into gunk, the inside of the tank can rust, and all of it conspires to take the growl out of your bike. Spring will show up and your motorcycle will end up on a trailer headed for the shop rather than under your butt where it belongs. Save the space. Save the hassle. Store your bike here and let us winterize it for you properly and wake it up properly come spring.

Why BlueCat?
We have the space, but more importantly we have the know how. We’re mechanics, not salesmen. We understand your bike. We’re here to take care of the machine, whether broken, sickly or simply hibernating. Storing your bike with us this winter also opens up the opportunity to get some work done while the snow falls. Take advantage of our Winter Service program and hell, you might not have to pay for Winter Storage at all. Then when spring comes, not only is your bike clean and ready to ride, but that big fix you’ve been putting off finally got done and there’s nothing left but loud pipes, blacktop and the only truly modern sensation: speed. While that’s no guarantee that the weather will be any good come March or April, it’s our promise that you’re motorcycle, scooter or moped will be good to go when the earth does finally head back towards the sun.
