Bad Gas

So I went out last night to look at a Red 2005 R6. Less than 1000 miles and a good price. Has some extras.

A guy is selling it for his gf who was too small for it. It started up and ran fine, however he said the gas is over a year old. He topped it off with about 5 dollars worth of gas a week ago.

I plan to pick the bike up tonight, but I'm curious. Could this old gas damage the motor? Should I burn the old gas off? Use some fuel treatment?

Advise a n00b.
