Default non-winterized winter techniques

How often do you start your bikes during the winter? IOW, how long does it take gas in the carb to turn foul?

I fired up the fleet yesterday and took each around the block... I think it had been 3 weeks for each of them since they last ran. Not running any stabil or anything, and in the summer I'd let a bike sit for 3-4 weeks and not even think about it. Is winter any different? I was pleased that each of the 3 started under their own (battery) power, albeit just barely..

And man, if you ever want to think your KTM is fast, first take the little TTR around the neighborhood, then the XT.. then twist the KTM like you did the other two
