I'm trying to hold out as long as I can. I pulled the battery in when the snow started, and put it on the tender in the basement. I'm leaving the bike out front for now under the tarp. I filled the tank, and put in stabil. Also, in the case it doesn't get ridden any time soon, I fogged the cylinders. I'm going to try and ride it once a week or so, but I'm also going to treat it as being stored. I bought a nice tarp (vented and weather-proof), but I have one last concern. My tires. I worry if I don't ride it should I be concerned about the tires resting on the side-stand. I have no center-stand and wonder if I should take the time (and money) to suspend the tires.
