From a few years ago before I got rid of the fairings.

didn't have a garage at the time, so I would just leave it at work sometimes.

I would advise against ever intentionally running the tank dry. Maybe someone with more engineering knowledge than me can chime in, but my understanding is that fuel pumps are designed to be immersed in fuel. The fuel also serves as lubrication. Running them dry can cause damage to the pump.

Read a sample chapter of my book, The Ride So Far, published by Whitehorse Press, or check out my motorcycle blog, including the story of my Daytona.

I suggested to the wife that my STR would be best stored in the dining room, as you my have assumed that didn't work it is in the corner of my garage.

Personally I would drain the fuel if the bike is going to be stored indoors.
