Wow! It's 31 degrees right now.

Looks like we got our first frost tonight.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Need to find some space in the family room, or dining room to keep my bike till Atlanta.

Could i fill it 50/50 water and antifreeze, and still have a functioning cooling system?

You already have antifreeze in there. You are fine leaving it outside or in the garage. My bike has Water Wetter in it, not antifreeze, so it can freeze (bad for engine blocks). No worries, your bike is fine in the brrrr....

Your fine with water wetter until your garage gets to below 32, if your garage is attached to the house, it will not get below 32 in there until it's 10 outside, or at least it's the case in my garage, just checked the temp in there, 60 right now.

Makes sense Rick. Bike is already in the basement though... Looks nice in the work out area... LOL! But, I am planning on switching out of Water Wetter as soon as RoadAtlanta sessions are over. Then I dont have to worry, because we all know it will get colder than 10... later this winter. But thanks, I forgot about the requirement for it to get that low before I have to worry.
