I usually store mine for 6 months in a damp, cold UK during the end of autumn, winter and early spring.

I put it up in the air on axle stands to avoid tyre flat spots, i always run the fuel tank really low before storage, then after storage put a fuel additive in to disperse any moisture then fill it up with the highest octane fuel i can get. I never run the engine during the lay-up period as i feel it causes unneccessary wear with cold starts, and i always do an oil and filter change AFTER it's been laid up as oil and fuel are hydroscopic and attract moisture in damp conditions. I also leave a trickle charger on to keep the battery in good shape.

Touch always starts first turn of the key in spring time.
