I suppose it depends on how many miles you have on your oil now. My dealer told me that if I have less than half life left in the oil when I park it for the winter, I should have the oil changed before storage. If there is more than half life left it should be good for the spring to ride.
As the dealer put it, it is mainly due to the amount of contaminants in the oil and they will start to seep into the metal as it sits during storage.
The other thing to consider is if the bike was heated and cooled many times over winter. That can cause alot of condensation in the crankcase, in that case, I would not drive it at all.
