Good deal Evodog. Sounds like this will be a good path for you. If you are interested in doing more work on your bike, just look for sales at Harbor Freight for tools and a really good bike jack/lift.
BTW, did you get a chance to go to the Long Beach Motorcycle Show? It was packed, but lots of fun checking out all the 2013 models. Plus checking out all the bikes in the parking lot.
