I'm having brunch in Santa Barbara this weekend, and then driving back to Los Angeles where I live.

Security is not an issue but in general what maintenance and precautions do I need to take, if any, before it goes away? FYI: I have a 2008 Kona Cinder Cone (linky) and the bike is currently in a reasonably clean state (but not spotless).
