I did it back in my condo days, never drained any fluids, If your bike doesn't leak anything just pull it in. If it leaks something, get it fixed then pull it in.

Depending on the apt complex, they probably would not allow that to happen. It's a fire hazard with fuel/oil in it. A lot of places these days won't even allow a gas grill on the patio, let alone a vehicle inside the unit. Even if the fluids are drained properly, they may not allow it. Best ask the apt complex about it cause you may get crap if caught with it inside.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I pull mine into the dining room every winter, just do the usual winter maintenance and she's good to go.

I keep both, the 10 and the 6 in my house on a permanent bases.
As long ad it doesn't leak anything, your fine.
Hell, at one point I had 3 bikes in the house.
