The K1200S Has been sitting in the garage all sad for about 3.5 months, just have not been able to get her out, and honestly I have just had on the tender and have not started. Its been on the center stand, Should I change out the oil before starting? Safe to Start and let idle a bit? Was going to see about getting out for little ride if weather holds.

No need for an oil change unless unheated storage and been a year or so. Don't start it unless your going out for a ride. Better to let it set, moisture generated while you run it sits in the oil making acids.
Below is an RT after ten minutes idling. Stories about people going for a cup of coffee and coming back to serious trouble. Battery tender brand motorcycle chargers say in their on line paperwork not to use them for extended constant charging. There are other brands that are good for that duty though.
