I guess that my problem is that motorcycles have often been my sole means of transportation and even now are the preferred mode of travel. When living in Butte, Montana, the bike (a CT110) was used for at least 2500 miles per year; those shopping trips and commuting to work add up.

Consequently, I am in agreement about the dangers of disuse. The bike was filled up and stabilizer was added to the gas, it was then ridden home and given an oil change, and the battery was taken into the house for the winter. The bike was stored in a separate, unheated garage with a yearly minimum temp of -35 to -40 F. I want to emphasize the fuel stabilization and the annual oil change at the end of the riding season.

Oh wow, that's just like mine. If I had the funds to throw at it, I'd have snatched that right up. I put 1200 miles on my little 250 in a month... Bought in 2014, last ABS version available and rode it for 3 months before I went on to a 1200GS. 6500 on the odometer in that 3 months LOL
