I changed the oil after the fogging, I don't need to run the engine if it is going to be stored for long periods. I also took the battery out and put in on my bench, it is in a better location plus I can keep a good eye on the charger. Been doing this for five years with no problems. Make sure to check the tires before covering, if at all possible put the bike on a stand to get the tires off the floor. Make sure you have a good breathable cover. I had a friend in Hawaii who covered his long storage metal item (after coating with WD-40) with terry cloth. It lets the metal breath and absorbs the humidly. His wife did this all the time with her sewing machine after use and it never rusted.
