1- Cover and secure
2 - Protect your wiring, how ? You can put a very small dab or Di-eletric ( sorry about spelling, Im a public schol guy, hehe)grease on your battery posts and an even smaller dab in your connections. the connections is probally over kill, but, do the battery at least
3 - Check you tire air pressures evey time you ride - with tke constant temprature changes, your tires will loose pressure alot. This practice will ensure you are safe and that your tires will last.
4- As stated above, keep on top of your lube - chain,cables - all that stuff ?
5 - Wax, is your friend ! Keep you bike really celan to make sure you dont have any finish issues - a clean bike is a happy one !
