If it's no longer than a month, I wouldn't worry too much. I would, however, fill the fuel tank before storing. This will prevent condensation from forming.

Have a nice trip,

You may want to disconnect the battery. I have heard that there could be a trickle discharge over time. I'm not sure how long "over time" is but, it's just something that I heard.

One month won't be long enough to significantly discharge the battery.

Have a nice trip,
