There is a very detailed winterizing prodcedure in the GL1100 DIY articles. If the link below doesn't take you to the article just go to the GL1100 DIY page and look for it.

I put stabilizer in the gas, I installed a plug on my bike so I can plug in the battery tender without removing the battery, cover it with a blanket, give it a kiss and say see you in the spring. I change the oil in the spring so I am running on fresh oil. Same routine for 40 years with all my gas toys and so far no problem. I tend to keep my toys for way more years then most.
