Hey Deno , Welcome. The only thing I would keep my eye on always is the speedometer, it has a tendency to run away on you. Other than that keep the maintenance schedule in mind. Enjoy, you only have a few weeks of riding left before the white stuff starts flying.
On a serious note, check your tires, change the oil and filter: at least you'll know the oil is fresh, change the coolant when you have spare time. If the brakes are a concern, check the pads and you may want to change the brake fluid down the road.
However, if you have no immediate concerns after your checks, I'd ride for the few weeks that are left in the season and do the complicated stuff during down time, and you'll have a few months of that for sure !

Hello Deno. Welcome to the forum.
Oh, and when you do tuck it in for that long winter nap be sure to have the tank full and to add some fuel stabilizer as well.

Sometimes my left foot still wants to downshift when approaching stop signs.

It's worse the other way. After a long stint on Scootie I find myself pulling in the clutch expecting to slow down.
All bikes are good though, it's just amatter of remembering which one I'm on!
