Winterization: how to prepare you bike for winter

Got this in my e-mail and I though I would share. What else do you do to winterize your bike?

Kinda adding to the above---In your neck of the woods, I think a couple of the best things you can do is keep the tank full of non ethanol gas (some just add SeaFoam), and go out and crank it up and let it run a couple or three minutes every 3-4 wks., or better yet take'r for a short spin, weather permiting... If you can leave a trickle charger on the battery... I used to park mine in the shed on the center stand, so I could put it in 1st gear and let the lubes spin around a bit, and warm'r up...
Beware---If you are in a closed area, CARBON MONXIDE, you don't want to go into a permant sleep...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Give them a good wipe down, lubricate all the cables, throw a couple mothballs in the breather housings (don't want anything taking up residency in there), full tank with K-100mg, put the Armorall to the tires to avoid weather cracking, and put the cover on it. I start them up about 1 or 2 times a month to keep them juiced up.
