I like to have the bike cleaned and waxed ( I still haven't got all the bugs off yet), the oil and filter changed, and fuel stabilizer in the tank. Oh ya, taking the battery out is a good idea, I'll have to do that sometimes. In addition, I have no idea what temp the antifreeze is rated to, especially since I added water to it last summer. In Edmonton it's gotta be rated to -40, just to be safe.
Basically, if we get a couple nice days in Feb, I want to be ready to ride.
