Onewizard - Thanks for sharing the two Must Reads. I have gone over those just now, and since I didn't come back right away after my initial post, I'll wait to try to share a photo.
In keeping with the spirit of the rules, a few more details about my bike are:
23k miles, came with a few farkles: taller smoke windscreen, SWMotec skidplate, GIVI monokey side and rear racks but no luggage, Corbin seat, aux power outlet.
So far, I have cleaned, lubed and adjusted the chain and given the bike a bath. Getting insurance quotes now and will go register and get a plate tomorrow.
