    28 degrees in Fl tonight need antifreeze?

    It's kept in the garage, blew water out pump, does it need antifreeze? I suspect the passages are not full like on a closed cooling engine, but should I fear anything? I'm guessing it will not actually get that cold that fast...and short term unlike up north where it's that cold for more than a night and long term cold (more than a few hours) am I thinking foolishly?

    you'll be fine, it takes sustained days of very cold weather for you even to need to be slightly concerned.
    inside your garage is likely not to get below 40 degrees even if it's 25 out side

    Quit your whining, my favourite riding area is under 2 feet of snow and the ice is 6 inches thick.
