Drain and refill fluids, change filters, and ride it.

Did you put stabil in when you put it in storage? If not it may start but I just got a 500 that sat for 5 years give or take and it started on the first try. If it doesn't start then you'll have to replace with fresh.

I'd do an oil change because it may have moisture and it is cheap and easy.

If you've done a coolant change in the last few years it is probably fine. Drain a little into a shot glass and if it looks like the original color and there is no sludge or rust then it should be fine.

Brake fluid I would only change if it is dark or cloudy or if the brakes feel spongy.

YMMV
