Sounds good. If you change your oil before you put the bike away, there'll be no reason to change it again in the spring; it'll still be clean. You don't want old oil sitting in the bike all winter with any moisture and impurities working their evil mojo. Don't forget to top off the tank so there's no room for moisture to corrode the lining, add a stabilizer and drain the float bowl (unless, of course, you have FI).

Oiling the cylinder walls is not a bad idea. Makes that first start-up in the spring less traumatic. Just do it outside 'cause it'll smoke up a storm for about half a minute. And yes, always drain the float bowl, stabilizer or not. The small amount in the bowl WILL evaporate leaving deposits otherwise.
