You'll be getting an FS1E next, my mate does them concourse, £4000 a pop, a lot more than they were in the 70's, my midlife crisis IS having/using a dirtbike, without the room for a spare bike , never mind a classic,but if I did, it would be a YZ125G 1980...see I do have a soft spot for the past...but I would not be able to resist ragging the arse off it, just like the old days...ha,ha..incidentally, my mate who has ALL the classics, just keeps em clean, but does have a dehumidifier in his garage, he has several show winners and even has a Vincent Black Shadow, they are always 'ready to go' and always in tip top condition.I wouldn't sweat it too much,just keep em dry.

Joel is right

I just park them up and start them in Spring (GSA)

Never start them for 6 months over winter

Use a dehumidifier - you will be amazed at how much water you extract from a 'sealed' garage
