Default Storing/moving motor bike

I am starting work in Houston in 2010, but my family and toys will not move until my house in AZ sells.
I anticipate storing the china girl bike for 90 days or so, as my kids think that it is too much trouble to ride it. Here is the plan. I'm open to suggestions.
Drain the fuel tank (defueling is req'd by the mover)
Drain the float bowl
Spray oil in spark plug hole and turn it over a few times
Remove motor chain, so movers will not have to deal with the clutch

Should I run the motor with some fuel stabilizer additive before defueling to help preserve the gaskets?
I will be pedalling my mountain bike in Houston until my house sells.
