Thanks for all the welcomes and the links!
bigaussie, I got to say: JD's bike is E.P.I.C.. I guess that's what happens to Versy (Versies?) when they are exposed to too much gamma radiation!
Picked up the bike today (too much rain yesterday and I thought I'd give myself a break on a new ride, after nearly 8 years off the saddle on a regular basis). It is mint. There was hardly any chain spray on the exhaust box, the tires had only central thread dirt (my guess no turns above 10 mph!) and everything else simply showroom condition!.
Brought it back home (160 miles still have to download the pics from the camera) and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it was (my old KLRs would be raping my butt after 2 hours of constant riding). I had to stop at a Walmart to buy earplugs, however, as my OLD Shoei was rattling my head! After a bit more acclimation I am sure I will be able to get a couple of tanks before having to stop. Regardless, I already lined up a local upholstery guy who told me he can customize me a seat for about $150, if I need it.
In gratitude, let me offer the welcome committee (which you probably already have) an electronic shop manual that I found. It can be downloaded from:

I don't know how many downloads can be done from this account, but it's free to register and you now know where it is.
Should I post it to the general forum (sans username/password)? I am not sure if this is allowed here.
