Gas additive for winter

Ok, so I put the bike down for the winter. I should:
A. Fill gas tank all the way and add stabile?
B. Leave as little gas in the tank as possible?
C. Other

Can someone help a brother out?

I put seafoam in the tank with the last premium unleaded ethanol free fuel available around here. Drive home and park it. New plugs in the spring and I am off. No problems in 12 seasons.

Yep, fill to top to leave as little room for condensation in the tank as possible. If you like, Stabil or Seafoam do not hurt anything. I ride mine all winter, we get a few days here and there.

C, Make sure the tires are inflated to max PSI
D, Change oils unless just recently done.
E, Put the battery on a battery tender especially if you have the security system installed.
F, Cover with a breathable bike cover.
That's all I have on long term storage.
