Todays bikes have (mostly) waterproof connectors....so electrical issues are less prevalent.
Lubing the ignition and gas cap key (not soaking, but enough to displace moisture), lubing cables, keeping the chain clean and lubed...I see brake lever pivots already came up too.
A bike getting wet isn't the end of the world...its staying soaked all the time is bad. If you are in an area that salts roads, I'd keep your bike indoors....the platings on motorcycles are not up to the task of resisting road salt, and it gets in everywhere, even when the roads are dry...
