    I would say no, your go to go. You changed it before storage so any grit or dirt would not settle during the storage months. With a nice clean filter and a full tank of gas. Safe riding. Hopefully in 3 weeks some of this dang snow will melt. I say my bike will be stored at least another month. Also on that first ride of the season, weather pending, I like to ride at least long enough to burn half a tank. Got to get some fresh food in her. I'll usually put a dab of stable in her every two tank fulls or so year round.

    I'm lucky enough not to have to store mine either. I would say you are ready to ride when the weather straightens up.

    No reason to change should be good to go

    Do you just change the oil or do you also put on a new filter. Now that to me might be overkill. But then again, it is our baby.
