I am having such a hard time trying to find the right answers to do with my bike. It was parked for 2 year in storage, And we forgot to take the gas out. I know i need a new battery cause It is dead. I know I need to drain the gas. What else should be done prior to riding it. Besides putting the new battery in and Fresh gas??? And If anyone is in Reno I need to know a good person to take it to that won't rip me off. Thank you for your help Much appreciated. 8)

I bet somebody will have to clean the carburetor(s). You need to closely examine all rubber pieces like tires and brake hoses for any sign of cracking or dry rot. You may need to clean and lubricate all the electrical connectors. Change out all fluids including the fork oil.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
