    First ride of the season...quick question

    Hey guys,

    It is 79 degrees here today and I am itching to get out...2012 VXR was winterized properly, battery all charged ready to go...my question is this it has 30 hrs on machine oil change and filter done at 9 hrs so 21 hrs on this oil and filter and sat through winter for 6 months underground heated. I plan on changing oil and filter this weekend because I had to order oil filter because of course they did not have any yet...imagine no filters and it is the start of the season...anyway am I okay to ride today on the oil from last season? Still a nice gold color if that makes any difference.

    Thanks all.

    There shouldn't be a problem. You don't need an oil change for quite a few more hours, and thats if you are being ultra conservative. Go ride that sucker!

    You are not crazy unless you live in Hudson bay, I've been riding since April.
