Thanks Jon! I put it off for a while because I was a bit nervous but was able to sit on my bike for the first time. The folks who warned me that these are tall bikes weren't kidding! I'll have to de-rust the tank so I can put that on as well and get a real feel for it. Before that though I'm working on the headlight shell. Which brings me to my next question:

How on Earth does one get those indicator lights out of the shell without destroying them? How does one change the lightbulbs in them? I've a LOT of de-rusting to do and it's difficult with them still in and the wires still attached to the right one (as you look at it from the inside). The other two have wires that detach but not this one!

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man.
I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.
