Looking for some advice on where to start. I hadn't had my 1996 Honda Shadow VLX 600 very long before I had to put it away. I haven't started it in 2 years. The gas is in the tank, oil is as well, battery is still on it and connected. It sat under a thin cover outside during a winter in Portland, Maine, and has been in a garage for this winter. I just ordered a manual from Haynes. Any tips on things that folks think need checking would be appreciated. I'm new to the mechanics game. Also specifically:
-Will a trickle charger help or should I just get a new battery?
-Are there other things I should do besides drain and refill the gas tank and an oil change and possibly replace the battery?
-Are the wheels still ok?
