+1 with nouse

the engine is basically a closed box as long as youre not running it with those temp swings you wont really get much if any condensation in it, putting it under a cover like a dowco would help to minimize this even more by limiting the amount of fresh air and thusly moisture getting near the bike but the opening at the bottom allows the moisture to not accumulate

flushing the gas tank is absurd but if youre going to do i can i have the waste gas after each? fill it up cover it up adn forget it

Meh the more you think the less you screw things up. Thanks though, you explained it pretty well. Well enough for me to go park it tomorrow after giving it a good ride, oil change, cleaning and waxing, plus fuel and stabilizer.

I would recommend getting the TES cover from TES Products online.
I bought one for bike in my garage and for one outside. This cover is incredible as it is a total enclosure system, you ride on zip it up and it has a port hole to run a trickle charger without anything getting in. 100% waterproof, dust proof, filtered vent holes, lined, lockable and easily stuffed into backpack or saddlebag. Best investment I have ever made!

Ride it if you want to ride it, just be more cautious about everything.
