How can I make my engine last longer?

Be cool, you're air cooled

If you are stuck in traffic and sitting at a standstill, don't rev up your engine for no reason.
Harleys are air-cooled. When you're not moving, they get no air. By revving up the motor, you increase the engine heat and break down your oil. Just idle while you sit there and stay cool! Do more-frequent oil changes in the hot months.
