Are you still running 20/50 oil in your bike. All the other suggestions are
good. I'd try the simple stuff first. Put 10/40 regular or better yet,
synthetic, in you bike in winter. Avoid synthetic for first 12,000 miles

Keeping a trickle charger on will heat the battery somewhat in addition to
charging it, which is good.
If your 1150 is new, you'll need a battery tender made for gel type
batteries. Your BMW dealer has them for about $40,000 plus applicable
