I normally put Sta-bil and fresh gas in my bike in December and then ride it when I am able to do so long enough to get everything up to normal operating temp. That, plus a battery maintainer, have kept my bike in good shape through the winter. But this past winter was so mild that I was able to ride regularly and keep the gas turned over. First time in over forty winters of riding that I've never had to use Sta-bil.
