Thank you Everyone. I got word last night on the way to Oregon that the bike is ready. I will be having it delivered to my house on Tuesday afternoon when I get home. Can't wait and a little on edge.

Much respect, Stay strong. Welcome to the site.
 I saw where you mentioned a side car if you felt uneasy, Don't for get about a trike conversion as an option.
