I'll take a ride report from the garage of you sitting on it going vroom vroom as long as there are a bunch of pictures.  :)

Yes, the 'garage moto noise' RR please.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

But could ya use stereo microphones please?

So when I lay it on my Dolby 5.1 system it'll sound like I'm walking around in your garage.

Without the exhaust fumes of course.

I bet it is hard to limp out to the garage and look at that bike with snow on the ground.

May you heal quick and Spring come early! It's gonna be worth the wait.   8)

Thanks everyone! I now have a bit more motivation (not that I'm lacking any) to get the leg back to normal in the event there are some nice riding days in February. Heck, I may even be OK to ride in a month. I tried to start the bike earlier and the battery gave up almost right away. It was used for demo rides (has 157 miles on it) and had been sitting for who knows how long without a tender on it. Didn't try to start it at the dealer before loading on the trailer. So I charged the battery, pushed the button, and it fired right up. I listened to it rumbling in my garage (with door open). It has a much deeper note to it compared to the 1190. A cool sound for sure. Since I have the seat off and access to the battery, I'm going to install my Battery Tender lead on it this week to keep the battery happy during its winter nap.
