I did the Stabil thing, but I just hooked the Battery Tender up with the battery in the bike (in the garage). It's got an adapter that mounts to the battery and I mounted the other end so it sticks out just under the seat. That way if it gets warm enough I can just take the bike cover off, disconnect the charger and go!
I also took the saddlebags and Corbin seat off and put the stock seat back on. I conditioned the seat and bags and put them in the basement.
I noticed both of the earlier posters are in MN, where a warm spell is less likely and colder temps would mean that bringing the battery inside might be a good idea. I'm in Omaha and it's not unusual to get a nice indian summer somewhere along the line.
The plywood under the tires is a good idea. I'll have to do that.
My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
