Re: Tips for putting the bike away for winter...
No way! Heat + gas = vapors + ignition source (pilot light, candles, smokes, etc) = kaboom. You also might want to ask the landlord and consult your rental agreement - best to be straightup and alive and un-sued. Maybe the landlord will let you stick it in a corner somewhere - in the garage, utility shed, etc? Otherwise I'd find/pay a friend/coworker/stranger to let you store it, at front of their sheltered/inside parking spot, in a corner of their garage, whatever. But I wouldn't leave a bike I liked outside. Period. But I live in Canada where you'd lose it under the snow for months at a time.
