I'd drain the gas for sure. Charging the battery will be required, and it's possible it may need replacement.
Check the tire pressure, but also check the tires. At this point if they are original they need to be replaced - no matter how they look or how many miles are on them.
There's also the basic maintenance items like oil/filter, coolant, brake fluid, chain lube/adjust, etc. that should be looked into.
You can do all that yourself with basic tools, a place to work, and patience, but you could take it to a shop. Be aware that good shops and technicians are few and far between these days, and getting good work done at a fair price is difficult.
I always feel it's best to learn how to do all the basic maintenance on your vehicles, especially cycles. You can't be running to the dealer every time you need to adjust the chain or check/change the oil.
I know it isn't possible for some, but the more involved you are in regular maintenance the safer you and your cycle will be on the road.
