Harley Riding Temp

Q: I am new to Harley motorcycles. I purchased a 2005 883 custom bike and my question is; Can you start it and let it idle without riding it. I live in Tennessee and some days it is too cold to ride it right away.

A: It’s always good to let your bike warm up. At least for a couple of minutes, while you are getting ready to ride. When thinking about Harley riding temp, you should not allow the m/c to idle for an extended period of time, if it it warm outside. You will be at risk of over heating the air cooled motor.
