My winter storage is very easy. I ride down to about 25F as long as there is no snow on the road. That means there are only a few days in January that I don't ride. Kick stand and a cover gets me through the winter with no problems. No need for any special storage configuration such as specialty stands, battery tender or similar issues. Last year it sat for all of about 2 days at a time.
If you decide to ride when its cold, get the right gear. I ride with an FXRG jacket, lined jeans and heavy gloves when it gets cold. The right gear makes all the difference in the world. My shark is far more forgiving on a cold morning than my old bat wing was. My hands were icicles on that bat wing.
Added equipment was a stage 1 HD air cleaner, a Cee Baileys windshield and a turn out boot heel guard. I also went with the BAL1 tail light MOD. You can never be too safe with lighting. Now I am riding a Vision with minor mods to give me this.
