If you have to store it outside, cover it up, remove the battery and bring it indoors, make sure your antifreeze is at least -40 and plug up any places where mice can get in, especially the air box. You might also want to cover up the seat with something like a heavy duty visqueen, in a couple layers as cat preventative. Cats like to get in places like that, and pee on it. You can wash the cat urine off the metal parts of the bike, but if it soaks into the seat, you might as well get a new seat come springtime. In fact, you might even want to remove the seat before you cover the bike up and just wrap a bunch of visqueen sheeting around that section of the bike and call it good.
