    Should a bike be parked on a mat or plywood of some sort or can it be parked, long term, on the bare concrete of a garage ?? Should it be stored jacked up ?? I'm looking at storing it for 5 -6 months. Thanks

    I recommend getting the wheels off the ground if possible. I don't have a lift so I use a piece of old carpet when I store my scooter for the winter.

    I use a foot 10 carpet runner with a rubber backing. Anything that works as a vapor barrier should be ok.
