Thanks for the advise on the not starting her. I'll just keep her on the tender and let her be.

What are u talking about condensation with a heated garage? Lol, I dont think so, Garage heated or non heated honestly I dont think it matters. My preference is heated, but like I said before I ride all year. Everyday she is taken out regardless of cold, rain, etc. if garage is heated, its not saying its 154 degrees in there its just not as cold as it would be. Bike is then started, motor gets warmed up and take off. Condensation will happen when motor is hot and hits the below freezing temps. Hence why u should ride more then 30min to allow it to vapor off. Lets not start this condensation in garage crap again lol

So, basically it's not actually put away for the winter. If a nice day appears I just pull the sheet off, disconnect the battery tender and go for ride.

Nice setup!
