Lots of differing views on storage... Some say keep the tank full to avoid condensation, others say to empty it. Fuel stabilizer is a good idea, as is changing the oil. I used to shut the petcock off on my Shadow and then idle it till it stalled... No fuel in the bowls to varnish up was my thinking. Never had a problem with the bike in the spring. Battery should be maintained during the winter months with either a battery tender or trickle charge it once a month or so. I think the owners manual has a section on storage, I would have a boo at that as well.
