MT350 - For those who own one (or have owned one) what are they like to live with as a winter hack?

I’m thinking about buying an MT350 (or 500) to use as a winter ride. It will need to live outside as space in the workshop is at a premium at the moment and I really don’t want to have to wash or clean it on a regular basis, so was going to give a liberal coating of ACF50 to protect it. Will it stand up to being left outside and still be reliable?

Not bothered about it not being particularly quick as it will probably only be used for relatively local journeys and is being bought simply as a way of staying on two wheels over winter without the need to wash and clean the ride regularly during winter.

Any real world experience of using an MT over winter as a “hack” gratefully received.
