Things To do Before Summer :)

lubricate control cables and periodically operate all controls.
check (and, if necessary, adjust) chain/belt tension.
lubricate chain, or lube driveshaft.
check brake pads and rotors.
change fluids (brake, clutch, etc).
inspect/replace/clean air filter
check all bolts to make sure nothing is loosening
inspect tires (for cuts, uneven wear, dry-rot, tread depth, images of the Virgin Mary, etc).
inspect swingarm and steering head bearings
lube suspension, pivot points, grease fittings, etc

Have a merry Xmass and Happy new year :)
