    I agree with the prior feedback; all the oil changes, a full fuel tank with stabil, a battery tender and a cover after using WD 40. Prior to that, I would wash the bike real good and get all the dirt and grime off off it; if you want wax all the paint. One of the reasons I live in the south, so that I don't have to worry about that issue...
    Keep the rubber side down!!

    Great link! He doesn't over do it like some of the threads I've seen, such as
    fresh air in the tires, Vaseline all electrical connections, or read it "goodnight moon"
    from your Kermit chair and then cover it with it's favorite blanky.

    Don't forget to top up the taillight fluid and check the tension on your muffler springs...
