Walk thru your place with a video camera and make sure you note the condition of everything.
Watch them carefully as they pack/load and document their stuff. They will try to document little tiny defects as HUGE wear and tear. Take your time unloading at the other end.

As far as the bike...Leave the fluids in it if you want to...but if anyone notices or it gets damaged and leaks you can be in for a shit TON of trouble/fees.

I'd leave a bit of oil in there and take all the gas out.

For air Transport it has be less than 1/4 tank of gas as far as oil i dont know.. but i would assume about the same.. I wouldnt Purge the oil.. but draining it shouldnt hurt aslong as you remember to put oil back in it.. you should be good with 1/8 to 1/4 tank of gas though

I think it depends a bit on the movers too. When I PCS'd, I had to drain the oil and gas from my lawn mower. They wanted it open/aired out for 2 days too.. which they neglected to tell me. The foreman was former USAF and let it slide, but if they tell you to do it, I'd say listen.
