Totally agree with keeping it and throwing it in storage. Boot camp for any branch isn't very long anyways. School will take the longest depending on the job you choose.
I am for instance an AT in the Navy. I did 9 weeks in boot camp, 8 weeks in Apprentice Technical Training (ATT), then 16 weeks in Pensacola for A-school then went and did another 8 weeks of school in Whidbey Island for my C-school. Some schooling for different jobs take longer and some are way shorter.
I don't know about the other branches but I believe the Navy covers moving all your stuff to your final destination.
Deployments will be different with everyone. I for instance was in Afghanistan for 6 months. Some of the Army folks said they were to be there for 18 months.
I would honestly give it a deployment if you do join to see if you really feel like you should sell it. For all you know you may get stationed somewhere that has year round riding weather and it maybe completely worth it to keep the bike even if you do deploy.
