Hi all, it looks like this weekend I'll be picking up my new toy \/ :newb: . I'm very much tempted to ride it home [-o< , about 20k of back roads, with my missus in a cage giving me a nudge from behind. There is a but, however :-k . The bike is almost new (3.5k on the clock) but it spent most of its life in the garage. It only had one service and it was over a year ago. So the oil is pretty old by now, blackish in colour. I can see the following options: * trailer * change the oil then ride * change the oil/filter then ride - not very keen to do it away from home * just ride it What do you guys think I should do? Am I going to risk unnecessary wear/damage by riding it on old oil/petrol? Is anybody living in the area (Beaconsfield, VIC) who could offer some assistance/garage for half an hour this saturday to help with oil/filter change before I ride it home (Glen Waverley)? Is there anything else that could go wrong (apart from me stacking it) with a rarely used bike? I appologise for so many questions in one batch, but this forum seems to be the exceptionally good source of answers! Cheers, -Wojtek.
