Oh, I didnt ask:
Is it truly gonna be stuck away for 4-5-6 months?
Or..... do you intend to get it out on occassional nice days?
If do get it out on nice days: Be aware that even if road looks clean and dry, there is likley salt dust that will get on bike and corrode it (especailly engine cases, aluminum wheels) unless you hose it down after the ride. ANd when get back from ride on nice winter day (meaning 38 or 42 dgreess you may not be to intersted in getting out a hose and splashing around cold water).
With bike in basement, maybe not be intending to get it out on occassion.
Battery in basement better than battery sitting outside, but still would be better to have a battery maintgence charger (Battery Tender) even in basement or garage.
