    No harm to be done by periodically starting your bike providing it is run up to temperature before shutting off.
    Run until fans kick in....let them cycle off....and let them kick in a second time.
    Done.

    I think there may be less issues with the starting regularly approach.

    Well due to personal issues and not wanting to sell the bike, it's been kept in the garage for just over 3 years.
    kept on a stand with reduced tyre pressures. Trickle charge left on and bike under breathable cover.
    I start it up and go through gears. Once cooling fan runs, then stops, it,s all turned off and covered back up.
    ..so far had no issues at all...even the petrol still good!

    Living in Texas I ride year round. Just got back from an 80 mile ride with temp at 33 F. I know this is impossible to do in other parts of the USA and abroad, so as others have said I would just roll her around a bit while letting her fans cycle a couple times and battery tender. I do this every winter to my 919 (no heated grips like cb100r) and it appreciates it! But what the heck do I know? Great ideas out here though.

    Hamehead, you suck! Unfair, while we soak in our misty drizzle, or stare blankly out the window at snowbanks, to complain about riding in above-freezing temps. We want more misery... as company...
    piling the mileage on...
