More than just weather! If the bike was inside all night, then weather doesn't matter so much.

When it gets really cold out (I store my bike outside) I have a heat lamp overnight pointed at the oil tank and underside of the engine. Two days ago, when it was in the mid-30's, I didn't even need ANY choke. Usually in that temp I'd need at least half-choke and it would take a while to run without choke.

So, leave the bike outside. Tell me where it is, and leave the keys in the ignition. I'll make sure it's safe.
