If you put seafoam in the tank and run it a few miles, I think it would still be a good idea to shut off the petcock and run the bike til it stops to remove the gas from the carb bowls. The little bit of gas that might still remain would still have seafoam in it to prevent it from gumming up, and there would be a lot less to gum up if it did. Probably is a good idea to store the bike with a full tank of seafoamed gas to reduce the chance of rust building up in the tank.
Also, if you know you're gonna be storing the bike for several months or more and you're gonna put your battery on a tender, it might be a good idea to remove the battery from the bike altogether if you have a wet cell, to eliminate the possibility of acid spillage. A maintenance fee bat shouldn't spill, but a wet cell certainly can, and the vent tubes could disconnect or dry up and crack, etc.. I've seen this happen and it ain't pretty!
