The important things are:
-change the oil if its close to its normal change time, old oil is more acidic then new oil
-either drain the tank or put fuel stabilizer in. Also run the carbs dry once you put the stabilizer in (turn off the fuel tap and run it until it stops. You can also drain the carbs if you dont mind taking the tank off)
-have it on stands, or at the least on plastic sheets. Cement will absorb moisture from the tires, drying them out
-disconnect the battery, remove it from the bike. Will need a trickle charger on it later since it will probobly go dead over the winter.
I also would take the plastics off, in the cold they are easier to crack, so I would keep them inside where it's warm
Also, it is a good idea to have your bike up on stands to prevent from getting flat spots on your tires. It's not a huge deal, but you might as well prevent from getting them if you can. Also, when you do store your battery, do not store it on a cement floor since it will cause your battery to drain much more rapidly.
