Tips For Storing My Bike?

Basically it's time to store my bike in the garage. What should I do to my bike so it's safe from winter cold?

I heard to fill the gas tank, should I add any fuel stabilizer?

I never stored anything before, I drove my Camaro every winter.

Thanks.

You put a chain with lock around it in your garage so noone will steal it. You could prolly also take the pedals off a bike would be hard to steal with no pedals
