I had the $50 Cruiser on a trailer, at 75mph, for about five hours, with an ambient temp of between -10 and +20. Wind chill... you do the math I didn't even chip the ice off, and three pulls later it was running. (I use about an ounce of SeaFoam in every gallon of mogas.)
That is an excellent point you make. I don't worry about my snow blower or weed eater so I dont know why I thought the bike would be any different haha
