It has arrived. Rode it 15 miles from the shop to Chris's garage. The shaft drive and gearbox are silky smooth. It's got lots of power. And it's whisper quiet. I rode back with no earplugs, and still had to strain to hear the bike so I can get used to the noises it makes. I'm looking forward to resuming the trip tomorrow. Here are a few pictures of it. Click for the big version, and I do mean BIG.
Good to go.
