Hey BB we have exactly the same bike except mine's the RA! Mine sits out the central BC winter, minimum 5 months a year, in an unheated barn. If I'm lucky I get to put on 2,000 to 3,000km rest of the time. My brother is a HD mechanic/instructor from AB and on his advice, the Fall shutdown is: (1) get oil and filter changed in town, very best I can afford -- used to be AMSoil but now it's just the best synthetic I can get in a non-Honda dealership town (2) stuff tank with Chevron red handle gas -- 94 supreme plus, I think it's called (3) at home, top up gas tank with dose of stabilizer/fuel treat from dealership and a few extra Tbsp of red handle from this summer's jerry can (4) wash and dry bike (5) remove battery to put it in nice warm basement, trickle charge 30th of every month (6) stuff battery cavity with dryer sheets and bubble wrap because barn so mice, not kidding, eeeew (7) rock bike onto back stand and wrap it in a fitted sheet set and....Zzzzzz. So far, starts up sweet every Spring and runs all summer on the one oil change, despite living on a gravel road. Hope that's helpfulFair enough. I guess I should start changing the oil in Fall too.
