bring it inside your house and thaw it, I would be sure to check that your coolant isn't frozen before you try and start it up

Absolutely, you'll want to make sure it's out of direct wind if possible and that your anti freeze is in good shape.

no one said any reason why to not leave it outside, which i was looking forward to seeing, since this is something i've wondered about before. what does leaving the bike out in the rain or snow do to it, assuming the anti freeze is fine. Is it the electronics/gauges that are affected, because those seem kind of vulnerable to me.
