Put a cover on it and make sure your antifreeze is at least 2-3 years old.
Keep it out of direct wind.

I did the same thing for my apt when people would block the handicap ramp. 20 minutes of your time and no more than $3.

Are you seriously this lazy and decrepid? For the entire life of my 250 (and still sometimes with my RC) I would ride the bike up 3 curbs to get it into my patio. You just have one curb, lazy.
Just slowly let the clutch out while to gas, to roll it up it.

just get a piece of plywood from the dumpster at a contruction site and use that......get something thick though, 3/4" or 1" should probably do if its not too long, you could even scam some 2x4's or something to stick under the ply to give it some support for the weight of the bike. You could probably find this stuff for 'free' if you drive through a neighborhood where there are some houses being built. Just make sure you take from the trash pile or dumpster and not their new stuff so if the cops come by you can just say you were taking scraps.
